Franki had cataracts, took a while to figure out it was his eyes. Fine in an arena, and a basket case on the trails. Kids could ride him in the arena in a halter. He was terrifying on the trail.
And he was probably terrified too. DB is beginning to have some cataract problems and in the last year he's shyed at things that should be routine for him. He's having some other health problems and his trail days may be winding down.
Whatever happens, he'll be in a nice roomy pasture...NOT a round pen!
