An Amish family in the Holland Patent, NY area is looking to rehome a blind Standardbred gelding. Lee is approximately 15 years old and was used to take the family's children 1.5 miles to and from school daily. Part of his freeze brand is illegible so we are not sure of his history prior to this. While he might have some partial sight his pupils are very cloudy and we think he is mostly blind.
He has been turned out with a mare who he gets along well with. He is currently turned out at night and in the barn during the day. His right hind fetlock joint is shown as swollen in the photo but it is not hot or painful to the touch. The owner thinks he has a lot of life left to live and doesn't want to send him to auction, and potentially slaughter, if he can avoid it. If you can help Lee please send us a message.
