When Roderick Olson’s horse Zaxson went blind, he did not cast the animal aside. Instead, he embraced Zaxson, taking him for walks in the woods and acting as his eyes. Since then, the two have developed a close friendship built on mutual trust and love.
Let’s hear Olson’s thoughts on Zaxson, “Riding a bling horse, that’s a little different, but to me, it doesn’t make much difference. He’s a very good friend. He’s just tickled to death to be ridden.
I think he knows that he got eyes then he just jumps up and down and runs and really likes to go.” Blind horses are just like any other horse. It is true that they miss one sense compared to other horses, but they are as beautiful, tender, and kind as every other horse.
It is so disappointing that a lot of people abandon them because they are not capable of activities that help people make money such as jumping, racing or dressage shows. Hopefully, more people will be inspired by Mr. Olson.
