"Just had to send a picture of our two
guys. TPDR Ray Charles is doing very well. Very skittish and a
kicker at first-couldn't handle his feet. Now he stands perfectly
still, without a halter, to have his hooves picked out, be groomed
and sprayed, get ear roll-on etc. He's still a little timid but that
may be his nature. He has a very sweet disposition."
Ray Charles is on the left,
he is 25-30 years old and has been totally blind since the day he
came to TPDR. When he first arrived at the rescue, he was
scared to death. You couldn't get near his back end as he kicked out
of fear since he couldn't see. What a joy to us at TPDR to hear how
far this sweet old guy has come!
Blackjack, on the right is
estimated to be somewhere in his 40s. "very, very old", according to
