    Up for Adoption

    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 14.1HH
    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. Current coggins and health certificate. Free to GOOD HOME!

    Awww, what a precious face! She is such a doll! I wish I could take her :(

    I know I wish she was closer, I would take her too! She is such a gorgeous girl. I hope someone takes her and loves her and gives her a great home.

    Why has she been exposed? O.o being blind and having to move away from 'home' would be traumatising enough without possibly having to take care of a foal she can't see don't you think? She's adorable though and all luck to her <3

    I did not breed this mare. She was bought exposed to a stallion by her last owner. When that owner bought her she was NOT blind. She has went blind in the last six or so months. : /

    BTW- I know everyone doesn't follow all of the threads on here. You can search Blind? On health for further information. I did not know this mare was blind when I offered her a home. If I had known she was I would not have offered because I know that I could not offer the mare a safe home. I'm still upset about the whole situation. But she's in my hands now and I'm trying to do right by her.

    She seems to be a very smart pony and still very alert even though she is blind.
    I hope you find her a safe home :)
    Best of luck with finding her a forever home

    I can't imagine being in your situation! I feel bad for you and the mare. I also know you will do whatever you can to the best of your ability to make sure this mare finds her forever home. She's adorable. Wish I could offer for her, but I'm too far away and finances are a bit tight right now. Will be following along to see how it goes for the both of you! (((hugs)))

    A member on here is thinking about taking her! This member has two other blind horses, a flat pasture and experience! I'm so happy I could cry. Everybody cross your fingers that this could work out!

    You got it. Crossing my fingers and sending positive thoughts your way!

    What a cutie! Wish I was closer! I am sure someone will give her a loving home :)
