Update May 30, 2016 Morton is now seeking his forever, loving home. Morton and Kaidyn worked hard during the challenge to show how wonderful of a horse Morton is, despite both of them being in pain. Morton has battled an eye issue during the challenge and Kaidyn went above and beyond to keep his eye doctored and keep him comfortable. Morton's eye just never settled down and continued to flare up causing Morton some pain issues and of course, vision issues. Since Morton wasn't adopted at the challenge, we felt it was best to direct the eye issue head on and schedule him for surgery to remove the eye. Morton's surgery was a success and now Morton is extremely comfortable and happy again. He has adjusted to only having one eye quite fast and he seems much happier about it. Morton is still with Kaidyn Lopez so that she can continue his training and keep him moving forward. This sweet boy is ready for a forever, loving home of his own. Morton is a wonderful horse and young enough to go any direction. He has a huge heart and a eager to please personality. He loves attention!
