Rocket is totally blind in one eye but despite this, manages really well.
Before he came to The Pit Pony Sanctuary his previous life was harsh and he lived a nervous existence with restricted periphery vision. This meant anyone approaching him be their intentions good or not, Rocket would become very scared. In the loving hands of this sanctuary, Rocket was put out in the high pastures, settled and nothing disturbs him. Summer flies pester him and all the ponies alike. But Rocket will not keep a fly hood on in the summer.
As if this poor boy has not been through enough recently and cause unknown, Rocket has damaged his good eye so now has little sight at all. He is being kept safe and has been given a stable of his own, next to his good friend Arnie.
Under the treatment of a Vet, the Pit Pony Sanctuary’s devoted team are hoping that Rocket’s eye will improve. The sight is seriously compromised and they are looking for a very quiet companion for him.
Maybe another pony with poor sight. They also need to try to buy a bit more land where they can make a safe paddock for Rocket and hopefully a new friend to be away from the main herd.
