Georgie, Madigan and 3rd blind horse's Stories
Blind Horse Owner's Story
My heart horse died and I was devastated. The day after I was trying to distract myself, so I was looking at Facebook and came across an offer of a free blind horse. I knew being free and blind he'd end up in a bad place so I asked my friend to go with me and get him. That was Georgie, they said they didn't know what happened to him but I believe he had a halter on and caught it on something and it rub on his eyes while he was struggling to get unhooked. He was a barrel horse and rides and does parades and loves to run. He's a mustang.
The next blind horse came from Sextons. My friend that does a lot of rescue through them contacted me to see if I wanted another blind horse because she knew I had Georgie. I asked how much, they wanted $400 I only had $200 and they let me get her so off I went. She is awesome, rides great is fearless, has become my new parade horse and is just wonderful. She is appaloosa/standardbred. She lost her eyes to uveitis and cancer.
Then just recent they posted a blind horse and it's friend at Thompsons. I offered the blind horse a home if bailed. They wouldn't separate so I have both. They got bailed and told me they had to be picked up. Once again off we go! The third horse is a mare too. Suppose to be a quarter horse. She seems to be very sweet in the short time I've had her. She has had a bad accident to her eye, I believe her orbital bone was broke and has calcified into a big bump. I'm not sure about the other eye but it's bad too. Blind Horse are special to me. Everyone thinks they are worthless or can only be pasture pets. I like to show mine off so people see that that is so untrue.
