This was the focus of my day yesterday.
Bandit was kicked in the head by a horse. We now know she probably didn’t see what was going on very well because she has cataracts. Unfortunately, she broke her orbital bone and may lose sight in her left eye, if she’s lucky enough to keep the eye at all.
I have no ill feelings toward the horse who kicked her, and there are only two people who know which horse kicked her. I don’t plan on telling people who that horse is. I won’t treat that horse any differently than I did before. The horses at my barn are like my kids–they do silly things and get into trouble, but I still love every single one of them.
I pray Bandit will survive the surgery and will be ok. She’s officially retired from “herd” duty, and will now be a house dog.
