Exclamation Update on jj!!

so we took jj to the vet today and heres what she told us:

so she tried to dilate his pupil in the one eye but it wouldnt and she said that was bad so then she did a ultra sound on his eye and he had blood clots or something in the back of his eye She said he is blind in it he may be able to see shadows but thats all. Theres no way to fix it so eventually it may take a couple months or a few years until it will become pain full for him and then he will have to have his eye removed. but she said he will be able to jump and everything. she said he is already coping with having only one eye.

so my mom gave me a couple options and i have pretty much out grown him like hes taught me everything i can and in order for me to move up ill have to ride a horse. so i am giving him to the barn where i bought him from. they said they would love him for a lesson horse. i know they will take good care of him there.

then i will start taking lessons once a week on a bigger horse and still be able to see him. then the board we paid for my pony like 300 a month we are going to start putting it in the bank so we can save up and eventually get a horse.

and im excited for may because when we were at the vets there was this girl there volunteering. she was learning how to do everything. im gonna start doing that!!

That's fantastic! He'll be getting a great home and you'll be getting a new horse!

I'm so happy that he's adjusting. He's way too young to be put down. Glad he is going to be ok!
