The Word On Un Ojo

Some of you that know your Spanish and Portuguese may be wondering if Un Ojo’s name is literal, considering it translates to “an eye” in Spanish and “one eye” in Portuguese. It is, in fact, because this horse only has one eye.

Early in 2020, a severe storm hit Cypress Creek Equine farm near Midway. Un Ojo was a yearling at the time and some tree trouble caught him in the eye while in the paddock.  His left eye had to be removed after a branch got stuck in it, as the injury was beyond repair.
