At eleven o clock, the vet is coming to have a look at a growth that's developed on Bella's inner eye lid.
Kaz and I have been feeling quite depressed with over the prognosis for our beautiful horse and all we can do now, is hope for the best. We've had her for well over twenty years, so fingers crossed for good news.

The vet has taken a growth out of the corner of her eye that was about the size of your thumb end.
He came out with a very long scientific name for it but basically, its been caused by her sensitivity to the sun. She's still very sedated at the moment and we'l have to give her Bute morning and night. He's pretty certain that he's got the tumour all out but there's always a chance that these thing might grow back.
I've got to phone the vet in a weeks time to let him know how things are. he's been very good today and I'm afraid that I feared the worst. Its still a matter of fingers crossed.

I didn't expect him to do anything to it today

We'll get her sunglasses for next year  (Allthough it has always seemed that windy weather has made it worse in the past )

I know nothing about horse ailments but would blinkers give her some protection

Very happy for you that it was fixable today. A fly mask might do the trick.

The eye looks a bit of a manky mess this morning but I suppose that's only to be expected. I'd got visions of having to have her put down yesterday.

Have only just seen this post but hopefully Bellas eye is feeling better by now. My mare suffers with equine recurring uvieitis which is a painful condition that can flare up at any time. I have resorted to putting a fly mask on during daylight hours with the offending eye blacked out, maybe this might be a good idea for Bella.

Fingers crossed for her

Good idea Claire.
Bella is slowly improving but still has a tiny bit of discharge (compared to what it was) and does not seem inclined to open her eye fully yet.
