Im going to my nan and pa's in a weekor two so i'll take piccies of buddy :)

These piccies are of casper. He was 28 although I thought he was 16 when we bought him, the people we bought him off drugged him and i had a few terrible accidents from him. When I found out he WAS 28, I just went out to check on him every day... one day I was playing in the areana with my friend when there was a loud banging noise from his paddock. We ran in and he was kicking the loosebox with his front hooves. I rang mum on my mobile and she said he probably just needed a change of scenery, so we took him into the next paddock without a loosebox and he kicked the gate with his front hooves too. Then he would lie down and strugle to get back up. He continued like that fow a few days with me spending every waking minute with him. I had to go inside to have dinner and when i came back out... he had gone to heavan...

the pinto is fitzy, a riding pony at my old riding school hes twenty something :)

1st pic is most active 2nd picture (is it possible to do kids and old froggies) 3rd pic is youngest looking

Great contest!
Delriah - 49 year old QH mare.

A)Youngest looking old fogie (this was at age 47)
C) most active old fogie

E)most amazing Old Fogie
I could literally write a novel about Delriah. At fourty nine years old, she's nearly doubled the average life expectancy of a moderately worked horse. She however, was in no way 'moderately' worked. From age three she had done just about everything a horse can do. With multiple world champion titles from her 3-10 year old years as a reining horse, to state championships and national titles in cutting and halter, you would think she was one of the many horses who break down early from overstraining their bodies. Not Del.
In her early twenties Delriah was 'retired' to local shows and extensive training sessions with young adults and teenagers who were learning the ins and out of rodeo. She competely sucessfully well into her thirties before being 'retired' again to a beginner/intermediate lessons. She was soon sold though due to having too much pep for the younger children.

She moved from place to place for years, finally being given to our therepeudic farm to be used in our intermediate and advanced rider lessons. Having lost her papers years before, we were told and had no reason not to believe that she was in her mid twenties. She worked ten hours a week in lessons. Months after getting her, we were told by the vet that she looked far older than twenty, and after much reasearch, we recovered her documents and were astounded to find that she was in not her early twenties, but her late thirties! She was immediately brought down to only working with beginners, but became bored and mouthy. After much debating, we brought her back into full work.

It wasn't until last winter that we decided to fully retire her due to slight artheritis. She suddenly began to lose weight and would lie around for long periods of time, dull and lethargic except for during lessons. When seeing the others horses saddled up and ready, she would begin to pace and whinny, desperately wanting to go work too. And so, after talking with the vet and perscribing a low dose of medication for her joints, she was put back into work.

Now at almost fifty years old Delriah has been moved to our therapy program only, being required to carry a single autistic teenager once to twice a week through trails at a walk and slow jog. She loves her job although she often gets a bit too spunky and has to be calmed down. She has taught many of us how to ride and we cant imagine the farm without her.

D)Laziest old fogie
(winter coat! )

Puddin' unknown breed (we believe she might be appendix), 26-29 years old.

C) most active old fogie

A) youngest looking old fogie

D) laziest old fogie

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Loving the fogie action in here!!!

I miss my old fogie. She was amazing.

Her name was Skye. I don't know her exact age because she was a rescue, but my vet thought mid 30's so we'll call her 35.
