This mare was found wandering loose on the roads of Romford. She was terrified, pregnant and blind. She eventually found her way into the local kennels’ grounds which was unfenced. Unfortunately it also had a massive pond in the middle of the premises and we were terrified that she would spook and run into that or the road. Animal Health Trust Ophthalmology Vets believe that she was deliberately blinded by her owners – that something was actually put into her eyes to blind her.
It took 12 of us 4 hours to catch her. We believe she can see light and maybe some faint shapes but that is all.
A few months after coming to us she gave birth to Jess, her mule foal. She was unable to produce milk to feed her and so we had to bottle feed Jess around the clock for the first five months.
She is still incredibly nervous of people and has to be sedated for veterinary and farrier work as she is simply too strong to handle.
