We found Gandalf in 2014 as well. Ridden western and probably used for ranch work, but he ended up just being a big sweet pet. Gandalf suffered from “moon blindness”, the reason he wore his “sunglasses” in the summer was to protect his eyes. But eventually his condition can only worsen and in late 2018 we had to make the difficult decision to quietly put him down before we would knowingly put a rider at risk on a blind horse. Gandalf was smart and affectionate and really was able to push far past what we expected of him. He was a great horse and will be terribly missed.
