Zaxson the horse wasn’t always blind, Wide Open Pets reports.
He could see perfectly well until about 10 years ago, but it wasn't long before Zaxson was a completely blind horse.
His owner, Roderick Olson, refused to give up on him. He started riding Zaxson again, and the horse did incredibly well. The horse relies on Olson to be his eyes, and is very careful about where he’s putting his feet.
