From living in the wild to running wild with professionals. One horse is in the spotlight with his trainer for more reasons than one.
This past June....horse trainer Jay Miller was given 100 days by the Bureau of Land Management to train a 6 year old wild horse.
When Jay brought Levi the horse home...things suddenly weren't so clear.
Levi wasn't responding to hand or body movements that would normally make any horse gallop. Levi has cataracts.... in both eyes..... making him 90 percent blind ....a surprise to his new owner.... and the bureau that found the wild horse and sold him.
But Jay didn't blink....the news didn't discourage him... ....the mustang show was still in his sights.
He says he's had to pony up money for vet visits and for Levi's upcoming eye surgery so Levi can finally see his tracks.
Jay says its not about being a great trainer but about saving the life of a horse.
If you'd like to make a donation toward Levi's eye surgery ...visit the Union Bank and Trust in Bonner Springs....or you can log on to facebook and search for Levi Miller Toganoxie...you can also check up on his progress there.
