vet check! HELP! eye problem (READ!)

Ok, so I have fallen in love with this horse, Passion Flower

6 yr old Hanoverian mare (she is green)

We had a vet check today and I was really dissapointed to learn that she has a small growth in her eye. He said it may or may not grow. I cannot see it at all and neither can anyone else with an untrained eye. Does anyone know about this? Should I keep looking for another horse? Should I go trough with the sale? Help!!!

She also came up with some mild arthritis in the hocks, but everyone I have talked to says that's common in most warmblood horses.


What does everyone think?

Thanks a zillion!!!

It is pretty easy for me to say this but as much as you love her she will be costing you heaps of money so you should go through with the sale.
But a great cheap product to help with the arthritis is RAPIGEL
It is really good stuff and you can use it on human arthiritis aswell lol

If you are questioning the vet's diagnosis on the eye, get a second opinion. If that is the only thing holding you back and you aren't sure about what the vet told you....get yourself more answer.

Unfortunatelyl, whithout more information on what the vet said the growth was, where exactly it was, etc we can't help you to know what to expect.

I think id pass honestly. You could find a better horse without all those things wrong. You never know, the growth could get bigger in the long run, his/her arthritis could worsen. She could end up costing you ALOT of money down road..
