A Florida charity is providing round-the-clock care in a bid to save the life of a blind young miniature horse.

The South Florida SPCA was involved in the rescue of the tiny youngster, who was found on Wednesday night.

He walked through the gate of a property near Southwest 197th Avenue and 130th Street before collapsing. He was unable to stand.

Police arrived, put him on a blanket in the shade, and gave him water.

The charity has yet to determine who owns him and the circumstances behind him turning up at the property.

He is said to be in a weak condition and the charity said his prognosis was uncertain, but he is under veterinary care and has received fluids intravenously.

People wanting to donate to his care can do so here.

The nonprofit group is providing updates on its Facebook page and its Twitter feed.

“Baby made it through the night, our volunteers and veterinarian doing all they can for this little guy,” it reported in a recent tweet.

“Our #Volunteers & #veterinarian giving their all for this baby.”

    If they really wanted to help this unfortunate wee horse they would do the right thing and euthenase it, I am sure that there would be other horses that would benefit from this care and attention and grow up to be happy independent animals.
