About Me

Active within 2316 Days

I am from Edina, MN and I've been a Club Horse member for 6 years, 7 months and 6 days

Nicknames: Louis,Lou-Lou, Blind One

Age: 30 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Pony of the Americas

Height: 14 hh

Color: Roany appaloosa

Type of Riding: We don't do a lot of riding anymore, but he does well in the ring despite his lack of vision.

My Horse's Achievements: He has been living for the last 4 years with no vision at all.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Peppermints and Mt. Dew

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: He loves to relax in the sun in his well-earned retirement after many years as a camp horse. He also loves to rub his head on me (terrible manners I know).

My Horse's motto: Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain.

How We Met

I rescued Louie when his owner was going to get rid of him after he discovered that Louie had moon-blindness (recurrent uveitis). Louie could no longer be used as a camp horse (due to liability) so he was going to be sold to a kill buyer..

Louie!!!
Hey! I feel like I have fallen off the face of the earth. We are losing 2 people at work, so it looks like I am going to be picking up the slack with a 7 day work week. Sigh. Just popping in to post some new photos and give a shout out to some of my closer friends. How are you and Louie? Cooper has been to a couple shows this year so far and he is doing GREAT! I am so proud of him! I think he is finally maturing! I have posted some new photos. Left a vote! I will try and visit more often.

Come visit me, Cooper & Pixie.

oh, ha, "the boss" was went to Jamesport MO to get some riding geldings shod (sp?) and trimmed. There's an Amish comunity there and the farrier, Eli, is most excellent. lol, and while i'm here blogging I oughta tell you about my experience with the farriers kids. you know Amish customs and so on right? Well, I had my nice digital camera on me and the kids were getting a little roudy so I decided to entertain them for a bit. you should of seen the look on their faces when I showed them how that things works! On boy was absalutely a ham but the younger one was more shy. i put a CUTE pic of one boy trying to drag his brother into the scene and trying to pose at the same time on Dan's profile. take a look!

aaaw
I hope i can do some horseback camping this summer! sounds like fun! you know, our Amish farrier has this pony that is just the sweetest thing in the world and she only has one eye! She pulls carts and kids flop all over her all the time. infact, i didn't know she had only one eye when the farrier's son brought her out to show me so I just treated her like a normal little thing until i came around to the other side of her face and went "woah... that's natural i guess." lol. well it sounds like he's one happy guy! i hope he gets better about being aproached from behind!

Moon Blindness
Thanks for the info, I didn't know too much about it before, other than it was a condition that some horses suffer from. I had heard that it was something they caught from cattle. Trauma can cause it too? It sounds like it is like an allergic reaction to the eye! Poor horses. Thank you for helping me expand my horsey knowledge! :) Is Louie completely blind now? How long was he going blind, or did it happen pretty quickly? (Please don't think I'm morbid and dwelling on his condition! LOL!) Give Louie a goodie for me and Clifford a pat! TTYL!

Come visit me, Cooper & Pixie.

I was wondering if Louie had a guide of some kind. That is so sweet! Does he find his way around okay?

Hi!
Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I have been working on photos for clients after work and haven't been able to blog. The new photos are very cute. He looks dashing in his garlands! Is that a whippet? Yours? Yeah, let's talk moon blindness sometime. I am curious. Left Mr. Louis a vote! Thanks for visiting Cooper. I should be done with the photos for a while, and I will answer sooner. TTYL!
