Sam- A blind horse

Sam, a 20 year old gelding, is a completely blind horse who came to us in 2013.  Its amazing how well he does!  He used to be a police horse in Northern California and came to us from San Francisco area. He has a friend that leads him around and makes sure he knows where his food is.  He must be in a pasture, when we first received him we tried him in a 24' x 24' paddock and he definitely didn't like being held in. So he is free and lives in one of quiet pastures and gets along very well with everyone.
