Thatís what they think they may have to do. These things seem to happen to horses that have the sweetest dispositions, she is the sweetest horse I have ever met. We will have a better idea after the appointment.
I guess you haven't met Wild Card Salty, then!
JK... (kind of)....
You can read the short version of my one eyed horse saga in the "How did you get your horse?" thread. The TLDR version is that we bought a grey horse who was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer in his eye shortly after we bought him last year. We were faced with the decision to have the eye removed or put him down.
My vet, who previously worked at Del Mar race track, reassured me that he would be just fine with one eye, but it was a really hard decision. I was very worried about recovery and how he would adjust, because he's a bit excitable and very athletic.
Honestly, it was not difficult at all. Salty is just fine (eye wise anyway). The recovery was pretty easy, everything healed well, he's not spooky or hard to handle, and I can guarantee you that he doesn't feel sorry for himself or think he's disabled in the least.
Here's a picture if him at a parade training clinic about 5 months after his surgery. If you need advice and support, let me know. It's a hard decision, but I don't regret having his eye removed.
