    Hey guys,
    Thanks for all the good wishes. We just heard from the vet about an hour ago, and all went well. They did not end up using anesthesia because Hank was so calm and well-behaved. Hopefully this will be able to correct his eye for the long run, although he will be blind from now on. Thanks again for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers!

    Cole

    Yay Hank! I knew he would be okay. Cole....I think Etamy Beth Halami (famous horse trainer, "cowboy dressage" was his thing) used a morgan stud that was totally blind for years...until Etamy felt the horse should be retired!

    I know people with Appaloosas, who(the appaloosas) are prone to a type of blindness called "moon blindness", who use their mostly blind horses for dressage, reining, and gaming. It's about a total partnership, and total trust...If you have that with Hank, I would say...after some adjustment, don't worry!

    Yay again, for Hank is a gentleman!

    Niki,
    The main point of the opp was to get rid of the pressure that was building in the eye. The pressure was so high that it did do some damage, and that can't be fixed (hence why he will be mostly blind). However, we got the pressure down, which means no more damage, and no more pain for Hank.
