Kubie is 27 years old. They are all turned out 24/7, which greatly helps with Kubie's arthritis. When I got him, he had been living alone and was pretty stiff. I do lightly ride him occasionally (mostly walk, trot for only a minute or two at a time) because he enjoys it so much. He was a competition and therapy riding horse back in the day, so being ridden is one of his favorite things.
I'm going to keep him blanketed as much as he needs this winter to help with his weight...the vet thought that would help him. The words "heart murmur" scared me. I will keep that in mind when the vet comes out for vaccinations, tealamutt.
