Won't Open His Eye
So I went out to turn in horses today, and was going to ride Diesel so I went to grab him first so he could eat. When I walked up to him, I wasn't talking or anything and he spooked really bad. (He is turned out with about 30 other horses). Once I started talking, he came over to me. His right eye was closed. I led him into the barn thinking it was maybe just windy out. His eye was still closed. He would open a little bit (Maybe a few cms). I had the BO come look at it. He was really spooky on that side and his right ear also looked like it was droopy. (I don't know if that makes sense) He would perk up his left year and his other wouldn't pick up as much.
He wasn't having trouble walking, ate and drank fine, and was acting normal so I don't think he got kicked or anything..
Per my BO's instruction, I washed it out the best I could with some saline solution. His eye was also tender when you touched it.
I have him turned out by himself tonight.
We think he may have just gotten something into it but is there anything else it could possibly be?
I tend to over react when it's my horse...
