My first horse was on BLM property till she was four, When I got her she was nine and pretty broke .. she died at the age of thirteen, three weeks after I had a vet check (she had a shoulder injury) and the Vet cleared her as healthy and sound. However my current BLM horse was captured as a yearling is 15 and has regular check ups.
The average unprotected horse can live to twenty, but many only live ten to fifteen years, I don't know about horses unprotected by governments but I am sure it is about the same
Don't breed, buy. Don't buy, adopt.
