|Online Adoption Application|
Stormy is a 23 year old blind Appy who was seized from her owner by Pierce Co Animal Control after she and another horse were discovered living tied to trees and starving. The two horses were held in Animal Control custody for nearly 7 months while their owner unsuccessfully petitioned the court for their return. Stormy has uveitis in both eyes, and is completely blind. Our veterinarian determined that one of her eyes was causing her pain, so surgery was performed to remove it. Since then, Stormy has appeared much more comfortable and happy. We are hoping to find a situation for Stormy where she can live with a companion horse who can be her eyes.
She is a very calm and sweet mare, and seems to have very little trouble navigating her stall and paddock. She tends to like gelding companions more than other mares. She is easy to handle and is a volunteer favorite. Stormy is great to groom, bath, trailer, stand for the farrier and vet and is an easy keeper. Our volunteers are working to teach her more vocal commands and she is gentle enough for a beginner to handle. This sweet heart is a healthy mare with a lot of love to give.
