Reba 8 years old Quarter mare
HOC Rose Arrival: August 2021
Reba's Story: Previous Owner purchased Reba and had her for six months before she started showing some vision issues. They took her to vet many times in hopes of saving her vision and tried all the medications for 2 years. Reba vision continued to get worse.
Blind Information: Right eye fully blind in March/April 2020. Vision in left eye is down to 40%. She was diagnosed with Poor Vulvar Conformation and had caslicks procedure performed.
SInce being here for more than a year, We do not see any changes with her vision. Her vision seems unchanged since her arrival. She can be alittle spooky on left side if she did not expect something.
Reba is a diva mare at top of totem pole. She would do well with another sighted or a partial blind horse but would not recommend her to be with other blind horse with no vision. She likes her space when in paddock but does well in pasture with other horses. She is usually ready and happy to come into her paddock after 2-3 hours on pasture. She hates it when the flies bothers her. Another important thing to know about her is she has phobia of needles. We are currently working with her on this.
She does not act like she is blind when she is on pasture. She may be spooky while being ridden. She requires advanced experience rider.
Reba is available for adoption. Onsite lease may be an option.
Reba has a sponsor.
