Just love every update on this guy!

When I volunteered at a therapy barn in North Carolina many years ago, they had a retired eventer who was completely blind (appy mare who had moonblindness)- one eye had been removed, the other had no vision. She was still an amazingly trustworthy therapy horse, and taught many small kids how to ride. She had been so fiercely competitive during her show days, I don't think she would have been ok without a job. She had a "seeing eye pony" with her in the fields, but was great in the ring or on trails for lessons.

Keller is quickly becoming my favorite HF horse. What a great little man! So did you basically just saddle him up and away you went? Now THAT is impressive. Clearly someone cared for him a lot at some point...he just seeps confidence and importance in those pictures! What a cool guy. I'd snatch him up in a millisecond if I could own a horse right now.

O my gosh! I'm so impressed and happy! Please keep the updates coming. (with pictures) Too bad there's no way to let the kind gentleman that traded a car to save this guys life can't know what a wonderful thing he did? Do you at all know who he is?

Keller looks great. In the video of you leading him, he does act like he could see shadows, I agree with you. He looks like a sweet calm horse and hope he continues to improve .

Keller's blood test results are good! Everything is in working order but he is boarder line anemic. The vet says that is an easy fix and is likely going to be fine with proper care alone.

I have a friend down state who is possibly interested in Keller for her kids so I made her a video to see what I can see. These are clips from the first, second and third rides with Keller (who has only been out four times now and for no more than 10 minutes) but, I'm impressed. It makes me wonder how he got into this situation.
