Smokey has been at our rescue since February 2019 and has settled in well. He is a super sweet boy, 14.3 hh. He is up to date on shots, had a healthy blood panel, hooves are trimmed, and teeth were done in October 2018. He has limited vision in his left eye due to a collapsed lens. Our vet believes he can see shadows and light and dark, but not focused vision on that side. He adjusts his head to see more if needed. He is gently approachable on that side. Other than his eye, he is young and healthy. Very gentle and looking for a human friend to be his companion and leader.
We have assessed him for ground work and riding. He will need a tune up in ground work and restarting for riding with his new limited vision. We do know that he does not like loud machines or motorcycles or being confined in a stall. Prefers pasture living and shelters ok.
Have added a sweet video below of Smokey soaking up some love from one of our volunteers. :)
