Buddy, the 31-year-old blind Appaloosa was rescued by Catskill Animal Sanctuary.

Most people are either unable or unwilling to provide the extra care required when horses lose their vision, and so many are euthanized, says Catskill Animal Sanctuary. Buddy was scheduled to be euthanized the very day that he was rescued. His former owner was unable to care for him due to changes in her personal life. Lucky for Buddy, he was the exception.

The sanctuary has been working with Buddy for months, teaching him vital verbal cues: “Up,” “Down,” “Choppy,” “Water,” and “Stop” that will help him navigate his new world without sight.

Although rescuing blind animals is not easy, this video shows just how worth it it is. Buddy is now able to experience the world around him, and make other animal friends while being guided by his seeing-eye human.
