This news item is about: Blue, an eight-year old Hanovarian mare, suddenly went blind one night. “In the morning, she was found just staring straight ahead and not moving in the middle of the paddock,” explains her owner Kelly Ross. “It was hard to get her to walk inside because she was timid and kept bumping into things. Once we got her safely in the barn, we called her veterinarian who examined her and confirmed she was blind in both eyes.” Blue was treated with steroids and the vision was restored, but she again lost sight in her left eye when she was weaned off the medication.
