    I really hope she is not blind, or becoming blind. I will have to have her looked at next time my vet is out. Thank you all for the help, Kris

    Since she is young and has not been handled much on that side, I would guess that it is not an eyesight problem but if you are concerned about it, then have it checked. Yes horses tend to get comfortable on one side then you move to the other and it is this whole new thing and they are not sure what to think. I think it is fine for her to look at you with both eyes at first. Soon, she will find out that you are not going to hurt her and she will relax enough to straighten her neck and just look with one eye. Just give her time and let her absorb what you are showing her. Sounds like you are doing great. Keep up the good work.

    That's what I am hoping. When she was little ( I bred and raised this girl ) I had to wean her at 3 months old and because of that I spent a ton of time with her. She was smart as a whip, by 4 months old I was leading her around with a tarp over her, she was getting in and out of my stock trailer. I sold her when she was 5 months old. 7 months later the gal called me back telling me she couldnt afford her board anymore at the barn, would I want to buy Indy back. I did verry gladly, but havent kept up on the work on her till now.

    But anyhow I appreciate the advice from everyone. I wasnt sure if I was doing something wrong, or if she just wasnt quite comfortable with me on her right side. THANKS EVERYONE
