Talking My old man is so shiney and healthy

I took this photo today. After quite a ruff winter I have got all of his weight back on and he has shed almost all of his winter coat
This is Banjo. He is a 26 (nearly 27) year old quarter horse cross stock horse gelding. He is looking sooo good, if only his head wasnt so grey... I love him!!!

Thanks!! I know... his head is soo out of place!! Its annoying haha He is usually an easy keeper, I just wasnt close enough to him this winter after moving out of home to look after him proply so he lost quite a bit of condition. I found some agistment close to me and just bought them up a couple of months ago. Both him and my other gelding, Chucky, are looking really nice!

Love it happygoose! I enjoy seeing the oldies that are still doing so well.

Here's my old man, he'll be 30 in March. (well Jan if we want to go by aqha technicalities...) While not quite the man he used to be, he's still healthy & sound

while she's starting to loose that lovely QH mane and tail, and she's a bit on the thinner side- Del's still looking quite spry for her old (or as she would put it, spring-chicken like) age of 49. Don't tell her how old she is though, she might go crabby-grandma on you!
