Miniature horse "Munchkin" - 01-21-2005
This is a picture of my 29"
miniature yearling horse " Silk Purse's Little Munchkin". Silk Purse
is a small time rescue operation. We got munchkin when she was
about 8 months old. The first thing we noticed about her (besides
being very tiny and cute) was that she had "bugged-out" eyes. We
discovered that her parents were both blind. Sire has Glaucoma,
and Dam has the same "bugged-out" eyes only clouded over with
Uveitis (why do people
still breed animals like this????).
Anyway - we kept a fly mask
on her all summer before finding out about Guardian mask. She is
doing well with the mask and we certainly intend on training her to
drive (pull a cart) when she is old enough as well as go
back-packing with us. Hopefully, with the mask and good medical
care, she will retain what sight she has.

Thank you so much for sharing Munchkins progress and we look forward to
seeing her drive!
