    How do you know he was 16 when you got him?

    His Previous Owner told me that is what she figured he was, and both my Vet and my Equine Dentist looked at his teeth and said he was 16, and I traced his life from the age of 2 * I contacted the person who bought him off the track* and then contacted the person they sold him to, and then the next person that they sold him to - until he got to me.

    And the math *from how long each person owned him, to the point of me* came to 16.

    If that makes any sense.

    But - again ,the math could be wrong and memories don't run the greatest. Like me for example, thinking I owned him for 3, when in reality it was 2.

    So - really, 16 could be wrong as well.

    That description REALLY sounds like it's a match, when you look at the pics...the markings are pretty darn detailed! I'd say they've got the right horse! But if the breeders can "flub" the age and all, who's to say that they couldn't lie about the age to the tune of a couple years? I know it's far less likely, but who knows, maybe he is only 18?

    I think regardless, he looks great for a teenager! I would never have guessed him at older than 9 or 10 to be honest!

    Thanks HITS - yeah, I've come to the admittance that Nelson is somewhere between 18 - 20.

    I have to agree about their description - it most definitely is Nelson! I LOVE his Registered Name - Prime Target.

    Yep! I've got a senior horse! He's 18-20 turning 5!

    Well, me and you, we can be awesome with our seniors. =P Lacey doesn't know she's 24. She still thinks she's about 4 or 5.... It scares me to imagine what she might have been like when she was actually 4 or 5.

    Yay for the old ones!

    Funny thing, I was just thinking about his blaze and how it's kinda like a target and how his registered name is Prime Target... It made me smile.

    The great thing Wallaby, is that Nelson and I are back at the very barn where he started.

    The BO's Husband *R.I.P* bought Nelson at the age of 2 off the track. He bought a stock trailer full of TB's and brought them to his farm, which is where we are boarding now.

    The BO says she has lots of pictures of Nelson when he was a Young Whipper Snapper, and I am excited to see them! And, I hear this all the time...."Oh that's Nelson! I used to ride him when he was 3" or "OH MY GOD, THAT'S NELSON! I remember him when he was *insert age here*" and on and on and on.

    I get so jealous, because I wish I knew Nelson when he was much younger. I'd give anything to of been his first and only owner.

    My next horse, I am going to get young, so that when they reach Nelson's age, I can say I knew that horse from the start to the finish.

    Oh - and yeah - Nelson is a Senior, but he acts like he's 3 again....especially on Fox Hunts.

    That's so awesome!
    I know what you mean about wishing to be the first and only owner. I mean, I'm only Lacey's second "owner" (she was born on her previous owner's farm) but I wish I knew her back in the day and I wish that I could have had the chance to take her as far as she could have gone. But alas, maybe my next horse down the road. =)
