    It's a sign that your horse has an eye infection, and needs to be seen by a Veterinarian.

    Eye infection. It could possibly lead to blindness if not treated. The not keeping the eye open could also be light sensitivity cause by an injury to the eye.

    It would be a good idea to have the vet take a look.
