I'm soooo sorry. That's always horrible news to get. :[ :[
I know how you feel, Robbie almost died due to colic. It was either pay $12,000 for colic surgery or put him down. Thank God we have insurance on him and we would've only payed $500 for surgery, but he miraculously recovered.
I take it you don't have inurance on your boy? I highly suggest to every horse owner to get insurance....just in case incidents like this happen. It's only a couple hundred dollards a year and that's much better than forking out a couple grand in case they get hurt.
What vet did you contact about how much money it would be to remove his eye? The vet's around here would not charge anything over $2,000...so them saying it would cost $4,000 is rediculous! Like everybody else said, get a second opinion!
