JDI, you know, there is something in the back of my head that is just going "hmmmm". BUT when I got him 3 years ago, he was 16. So he is either 19 or 20. So they have to be right. But I too am skeptical.
Wow... I didn't see ANY of that but the last 5. The last 5 is fairly distinctive. I have to say though - I'm quite skeptical, he doesn't look 20!!
The Jockey Club did say that he possibly is 19, beacuse he was born late in the season and alot of the time, the owners will "flub" their real age to race earlier. So they said "possibly" he was born in 1990, but was marked at 1989 to put him in the 2 year old races.
I don't know what the facts are. I wish I could find his registered papers to be sure.
I have to say that I'm not all the surprised about his age, his teeth definitely look like he is around 20, but would have to see the side teeth to be sure.
Body wise he is in GREAT condition he looks wonderful! How long have you had him?
I'm glad you were able to find out more information about him. :)
He is up there somewhere, but to be "100%" sure, I'd have to have someone from the Jockey Club to come and read his tattoo, or find his papers......
He was 16 when I got him, so - to be honest, he's been 16 for the last 3 years I've owned him.
Or has it been 2???? Oh oh..........*knocks forehead*
My Hubby says it has been 2 years. Why do I think 3?
OK CORRECTION!!! I've owned Nelson 2 years now. Yes. So then the date cannot be correct. He has to be 18.
Oh poop. ....
I either have my math wrong, or the Jockey Club got the wrong horse.
