One thing to see a horse through all issues that you already own, and quite another to buy one , already known to have potential problems, setting yourself up for more heart ache, not to mention expenses, as you bond with that horse
Might be a cheap auction price, but the purchase price of ahorse, is often the cheapest part, esp if you buy one with known issues

I would pass as well. There are hundreds of horses w/out known issues for sale, and you've already had a tough go of it.

I wouldn't pass. Horses can adjust really well to being blind If the rest of her health is fine, why worry? Your horse had more than just blindness. If my boy went blind, I'd keep him because we have a connection. I wouldn't pass up on a horse who might eventually go blind.

Winter is coming
