AWWWW that would be so sweet a blind couple
I promise he wont be any trouble, he is so easy to keep ,I wish all my horses where as easy going as Pal, you hardly even know he is around and very good company for your girl , she needs a Pal
OHHH !! WOW !!! WHAT A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS PRESENT THAT WOULD BE FOR PAL , A NEW FAMILY AND GIRL FRIEND .
I WONT TELL HIM TILL YOUR SURE SO HE WONT BE DISAPPOINTED AGAIN.
THANK YOU SO MUCH AND MERRY CHRISTMAS
Please someone take Pal! I have a blind saddlebred/pasofino mix and he is SOOOOOO amazing! He knows his pasture and to see him sometimes you would not know he's blind. He responds AMAZINGLY to verbal cues "WHOA! Step UP! Step DOWN! Treat! (LOL!)"
And if you have flat trails to ride on, no problem! Dusty can flat out FLY! When I ride him people don't believe he's blind. Talk about a smooooooth fun ride. And let me tell you that boy will wear you out wanting to go, go, go! (even extremely rocky and rooty trails we've ridden on)
And the funny thing is, we had Dusty right before he went blind, and he didn't like, AT ALL, big rocks, overturned trees and drain culverts. Freaked him out! Now? Well, he can't see them so I guess he got over his issues, LOL! And weird or loud noises? He isn't going anywhere, he'll dance in place but once you reassure him he settles down.
And so pretty, I just love to watch him, he really is just beautiful, Dusty The Wonder Horse, he's the barn favorite. Has to mug you for cookies and soda (and whatever else you are eating.)
I always thought if I get rid of aother horse I would get another blind one, and him and Dusty could bounce off each other in their pasture. Would name them "Pinball" and "Roomba". Dusty is 18 now, and he sure don't look it.
But for anyone considering Pal, a blind horse will bond so hard to you, it's unreal, like nothing I have with any of the other horses (14), and you will love them so much. PLEASE give him a chance. I don't think you will be disappointed, especially with a TWH!
I want a signature but I have nothing original to say except: "STHU and RIDE!!!
Wonderful COTHER's I've met: belleellis, stefffic, snkstacres and janedoe726.
Thanks You for the reassurance that blind horses aren't useless.
You are so right about the bonding , none of my other 15 bonded so quickly with me , and your right they can do anything any other horse can ,you only need to gain their trust and they are so willing to give it , they seem to know they need someone, Pal is only coming 5 y/o and is so smart he is amazing !!! he has is whole life in front of him ,
I have wormed him and he is putting on weight ,he is going to fatten up nice and be one beautiful horse ( I HAVE PAL'S TWH PEDIGREE PAPERS IN HAND FOR HIS NEW OWNER )
Pal doesn't need any special care, he fends for himself very well ,he don't even need special fencing, all he needs is food, water and someone to love him and teach him what they want him to do he is so quick to learn and he wants to please .Pal is easier to work with than a sighted horse
