Unfortunately there is no way my place is going to work for this girl. I attempted to put her in the pen we made for her today. She was fine for about five minutes. I walked her around the pen, showed her where the fence was and everything. My Haflinger mare came over and before I could make her get away (I was cleaning out the run in right by the pen) she bit the Arab mare on the back. Of course it frightened her and she panicked, running right into the other side of the pen. It probably scared me more than it did her but the way she hit the gate I was afraid she had been hurt. She wasn't. I got her back in the stall but realized that no matter what it's not going to work. I have evil Haflingers that don't say "Hello, nice to meet you!" it's more like "This is my turf, in order to stay you got to obey what I say". Not going to happen with the blind mare.
So I'm asking horseforum to reach out and maybe we can find this girl a better more experienced home. The vet will be out Wednesday to tell me exactly what is wrong with her eyes and if she is in fact pregnant. I will update this posting as soon as I know what is going on.
Approx 10 yrs old
Exposed to chestnut QH stallion
Was broke to ride but hasn't been ridden in awhile. Fully blind in both eyes. Sweet and trusting once she gets to know you.
I'm looking for a permanent home for her. So she doesn't have to go through another move. The last move about did her in. I really like this girl! But there is no way I can keep her here. Had I known she was blind I would have never offered to take her in because of my horses and my pasture are both not safe enough for a blind horse. She can just be a pasture puff or with time you might be able to ride her. She is sound and otherwise healthy. Just been de-wormed, will have her hooves done before leaving.
