Horses on this page have been retired to FCER. This happens with horses that have medical issues, or are of advanced age and must be closely monitored.
We do our best to keep them comfortable for as long as we can, and then we assist them in crossing over the Rainbow Bridge. It is our last act of compassion for these horses that have served humans so well in their younger years.
Blanca is a very sweet 20 year old white appaloosa mare. She came into FCER in 2009. Her owner had her for about 3 months. She had something wrong with her eye when he got her. He has been treating both eyes by squirting penicillin in them. She is almost blind in both eyes. It turns out the Blanca has an underlying condition called Recurring Equine Uvitis. Left untreated, it will cause blindness. Her feet looked like pancakes. Blanca is very gentle, and willing to do as asked. She gets scared because of her sight, but she'll try anyway.
Blanca is retired to FCER. She has learned the boundaries of her pen and shelter now. New people in her pen make her very nervous, so a limited number of handlers are allowed. She handles nicely and leads very well. We will make her comfortable here.
You can help Blanca by sponsoring her monthly expenses.
