My name is Alex, I am a wonderful horse, very sociable and blind in one eye. I think that that is the reason that I was abandoned. Luckily I was brought to the Society where my leg was treated and I was taught how to go out for rides with all the necessary caution
Alex, a two and a half year old horse, was discovered wandering in the central region. Upon arrival in the Society he was found to be blind in his right eye, apparently from a sharp object that pierced his eye.
Veterinary examination established that the blindness is permanent, there being no way to save the sight in that eye. In addition, Alex suffered from a wound in his left leg that needed sterilization and stitches.
Alex turned out to be an exceptional horse – he is particularly friendly, loves to kiss and to be stroked and enjoys expending energy by going out for rides. Rides have to be undertaken with great skill and very carefully due to his blindness.
After a long process of rehabilitation we found a new home for Alex in a nice farm.
