#106 Roan Appaloosa Gelding. 15 - 18 yrs. Appx. 14.3 hands. Sound. Anyone can ride this horse, but he is going blind. I do not think he can see out of his left eye and the vision in his right is blurry at best. A very sweet and cute horse that needs a special home.
Oh, Frankie is not just another pretty face! HA! He may have some vision impairment, but he ain't no dummy! He immediately found out that if he stretches his neck far enough, scrunches into the corner of his pen and sticks his head way, way out through the rails, that he can grab the handle of the closest feed bin and have a feast! HA! I couldn't believe he could reach that far!
I have been feeding him on the ground because I am afraid he will bang his face if I put a feeder in his pen. He did run into the side of the corral today...not hard...but he gave it a good bump. I also had to show him where his hay, grain, goodies were. But he had no problem remembering where the feed bins and hay stack were because he was back over there trying to get a hold of the feed bin once he finished his dinner! HA!
