I have a lovely young horse for sale and this came up in a finding on a PPE. Presented as a very slight cloudiness in the eye but vet couldn’t confirm it was nothing. Took the horse to New Bolton for an ophthalmologist exam and juvenile cataracts was the finding. They are tiny, cause no issues with vision currently and likely never will, but they’re there. The potential buyer decided to pass as they weren’t comfortable with the risk. I get it, but am super disappointed. The horse is lovely otherwise. Super mover, fabulous over a fence, great temperament and vets otherwise.
Has anyone had experience in dealing with these in a horse? Did they ever progress or just stayed the same and never were an issue? The consensus from our vet and the breeder are that this isn’t an unusual finding and 90% of the time they never are an issue, horse goes on to have a long career. Would love to hear about anyone’s experience! Has anyone successfully sold a horse with this type of finding? Thanks!!
