New Rescue Horses
Tyson is 3 year old QH gelding 14hh who was surrendered with some vision problems. The vet seems to think he is totally blind and that it may be genetic which is very sad considering his young age. We have decided to take him to an eye specialist to see whether she can shed some light on his situation and I have been in contact with the blind horse association. I will keep you all posted.
Mishka was also surrendered on the same day as Tyson. We had a lovely lady go over to pick Tyson up and when she did the owner of the Agistment centre asked if we could take an old mare who had been abandoned there. She is 24 years old, 16hh who is in light condition with the worst hooves I have seen in a while. She also has a very large nasty sarcoid on her shoulder. The poor old girl is a real sweetheart though and hopefully we can find her a nice retirement home.

Nasty long hooves
The day after she arrived we had the farrier fix her feet.
So much seedy toe to cut away, but much better
