I received this message from our local riding group. I thought it was really useful information so I’m passing it directly to you all:

BLIND FILLY UPDATE!
Well, now that the owner knows there is a future for this cutey patootey, she has named her, “Cookie”. You see, her dam is named, “Oreo”…. Everyone loves this frisky little thing! Not being able to see is not stopping her from being rambunctious!
Cookie is having both eyes done! Thanks to their own fundraising and our donations, this little girl will see!
The equine hospital moved the surgery date back to June 16th because they are waiting for a special piece of equipment to arrive. We will update as soon as we have any news.
Here are some new pics! Cookie is growing like she should!
MAMA TESS UPDATE!
I wish I had some earth-shattering news, but nothing much has changed since the last time I updated about MT… Tess still has the split left hoof and a hole in her right sole. Those spots will take a while to heal, especially with her damaged blood supplies.
But, the girl gets around! She’s happy. And now she can travel around the place again because all the grass is gone already.
The other horses have eaten all the grass and since we are in a drought in CA, there is no lawn watering. So Tess can now be let out to roam. Pretty much everywhere is brown. Sad. But, good for a foundered mare!
I thought I would post some of MT’s early morning and late evening excursion pics!
Please excuse her ‘bed head’ look. MT naps around 6 times a day so she generally looks a bit messy. But, I do groom her daily – at some point.
