Platinum Performance Horse Welfare Awards

Birth Year: 2007. Gender: Gelding. Breed: TB/QH Cross.
Affiliated with Horse Feathers Equine Center Inc. .

I am nominating Felony because of his loving and playful personality despite his beginnings and now his eyesight. Felony came to us at 1 month old with his Dam in 2007. He was emaciated and very ill, we had to IV him and teach him to suckle again, he had also been attacked by dogs. Felony grew and the children who came here worked with him playing in the arena with all sorts of games, he loves attention and will run to the gate to come in to "work". Felony began riding several years ago and we want to continue his training after surgery. He was adopted out and returned due to owner circumstances so we began working with him again. After re-acclimating to the facility he saw the vet when we noticed he had some vision issues.

Felony has developed an eye condition which now is slowly going "raisin" eye and will have to have it removed. This will make him more comfortable and alleviate any debris from getting into the eye socket. The vet said to keep working him and helping him to adjust to going blind in that eye. He comes in weekly for grooming and lunging, riding.

We are offering him a sanctuary home and to participate in our programs after surgery. The funds from this will help pay for that surgery and supplements will help with his rehabilitation process.
