KBuck, a miniature horse
with a fake eye, nuzzles his owner Kelsey Chumbley on September 14, 2008, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
The tiny equine lost his left eye a few days after birth, likely the victim of a swift kick from his mother, according to the Associated Press.
Experts at La Fuente Ocular Prosthetics in Oklahoma City made a mold of KBuck's hollow eye socket and created a hard plastic fake eye, which was hand-painted to look like the real thing.
"Having one eye hasn't affected him a bit—he's a spitfire," veterinarian Jeff Hammond told the AP.
