G&G

These are the babies that now live at my property and I get to train them and ride the older one.. The dark brown is 3, the bay is 5 and works nice.

Without further ado, there they are.

Beautiful! Is there something wrong with the darker one's right eye? It looks a bit odd in a couple pictures.

They are both beautiful!:) I do see what Kayella means about the eye though. It could just be the angle or the particular shots but it does look like the one eye has something wrong with it

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

The right eye is gone. He had an accident and therefore sees only with the left one. However, it does not affect his life much, and he is fine with it.. doesn't mean that we love him less, he is perfect in every other way, so we don't really miss the other eye.
Many other horses are not as confident and secure as he is with his one.

that would explain it! I worked with a horse with only one eye once. He was a pretty successful harness racer, it was always weird because he had skin over the eye socket but it would move when he blinked. But he was a real nifty guy. I liked him.

I'm glad he's still confident :) and that he still has someone to love him he is quite the beauty!

I have known quite a few one eyed horses... this one tops them all.. apart from the ocasional bending over to see things, he is completely "normal".
We havent had him for long and we have loads of work, and also need to get more meat on his bones, both muscle and some fat, but that will come with time.. he has us, and a buddy and basically a living paradise.. the best part is, he comes to snuggle every time I got to their pastures!!!

We had some photoshoots with the boys on sunday, our Teddy was fantastic,

Believe me, trying to fix his mane was not easy, and I need to try different techniques, this was horrible!!!

After the riding shoot he got to take a shower and relax in his field before the evening shoot :P
