Wow! Im surprised that someone that knew nothing about horses was as smart, and as caring for the man that contacted you! Nice to know there are people in the world that still care about other living things! Poor old guy, kudos to you for taking him in for the moment! Sounds like you have your hands full yourself!

Whatever you decide for the old fellow is a million times better than where he was just at and living with!

I am still surprised! What a nice guy.

Well. It would seem that the very first horse that I've come across assuming I'll just be kind enough to put him down, might prove me wrong.

It was a chilly day with a fall feeling and all of the horses were running. Keller joined in when he heard the commotion he moves easier every day. Wish I'd taken a video of him walking the first couple of days here, I honestly didn't see this coming.
He likes to keep weight off from his left front yet while standing (with the rings and abscess tracks I'd assume he had lamanitis) and his poor ole neck is so stiff that he cannot reach to itch his sides BUT boy, he sure does look leaps and bounds better -

He looks to a happy horse and to bad you cannot keep him as a pasture puff, in with some of your other ones. It was kind of you to take him and give him some food and kindness. Some of his ailments may correct with time. A horse in extreme pain usually just stands and sulks.
I am sure you will do what is right for the horse.

Would be great to see a happy ending if he seems pain free for an extended period. Looking forward to the updates!

I nearly cried seeing him run like that. I can't believe how well acclimated to his sight he is. I think I only saw him lose balance briefly once and BOY does he look happy! Looks like he is already packing on the pounds too. Maybe as he gains condition his joints will begin to 'fix' themselves enough for normal movement.

Do his eyes look crooked to you, or is it just me?

I don't think his eyes are crooked... I'd have to straiten his head to see LOL but he stands with his head tilted so that the right eye is facing the ground. That doesn't make sense to me because he doesn't seem to see a bit out of the left eye. You'd think he'd want his good eye looking around. Not pointed down.
Maybe he cannot really see out of either side. I don't think he sees much. I've never even seen him follow a shadow. But he'd fool you because he can really figure things out. I'm sure the round pen is easy to navigate for him, as easy as anything will be. His eyes aren't even cloudy so much as they are just "vacant" looking. I would like to know how it happened.
He might also hold his head crooked because his neck hurts. I've never seen a horse with less range of motion. He does have a chiropractor scheduled for next week. I figured I can go ahead and offer him that while we keep waiting and seeing.

I watched the video again and you're right. That is peculiar. Maybe he can't see out of either anymore, but he had sight in his right eye last, so he got into that habit and just still does it. When my filly severed her ear and appeared to lose hearing in her right ear, she would tilt her head like that too. Just a guess.

I hope his appointment goes well!

Wow I can't believe how he is running around in the pen in the video after how bad off he was. Maybe there is hope for him after all that would be great.
