Wow!! Gorgeous, and you have had him for 26 years. That's like raising a child.

We had him his whole life. First foal born on my parents' farm. He was an amazing horse. I am blessed to have had him.

This is Delriah, our Quarter Horse mare. She's just three months shy of turning 50 years old, and still going strong!

(three years ago at age 46)




(two weeks ago, age 49)




Delriah's had quite the life. She was started as a two year old, won two world titles in Cutting as both a three and five year old- was retrained to rein as an 9 year old- was 'retired' from competing and sent to be a lesson horse- was far too much for even some of the advanced riders - started calf roping again in her teens, was sent to barn where western eventing is taught and stayed there for quite a few years, had a few years that we can't track down; ended up at yet another cutting facility- worked there teaching teenagers and young adults to cut until her late twenties; was sold AGAIN as a lesson horse, and then donated to us because she had too much 'spunk' for the lesson program. She was given to us as a supposive 'mid twenties' QH who had too much fire for her own good and who'd 'been a lesson horse her entire life.' Then, one day a vet commented to us that her teeth didn't look like any 'twenty year old he'd ever seen' and we got curiouse. Researched her a bit, located her registration papers; and we find that she's not 23-24; she's in her late 30's! We've now had her for 11-12 years and, even at this age, she is still ridden as a lesson horse with only very minor artheritis, barefoot- twice a week; and lives outdoors 24-7. A testimony that a horse doesn't need a plush life to be healthy, I'd say!

Delriah isn't technically my horse, she belongs to Halter Inc- where I work. I'm simply her care taker...or rather, her servant; if you ask her ^^ I can ask the BO on Saturday about pulling them up some way or another though, if you're interested =]

ETS. She was born in 1962...I'm not sure if AQHA would have her pedigree up online, but that's something I could probably access pretty easily if they have them back that far, right? I really don't have a clue about that whole process.

This is Banjo. He is not far off 27 (no 50 yr old!!!). I've had him for coming on 7 years. He is fit as a fiddle and tough as nails. Don't know anything about his history, only that a lady owned him for a trail horse for a year before I got him. He is practically bomb proof and you can do anything with him. He is very wise... no fooling him I love my old man

Yes, I'd also like to see that paperwork, along with any documentation of her wins. If she's really a coming 50 y/o, you should call the Guinness World Record people. I know some ponies can live into their 40s, but I've never seen a full grown horse get much past 35.

She definitely deserves to be in the World Record if she's really that old and still looks that good.

I don't know about a 50yr old, but a friend of a friend has a normal sized horse they say is 39 or 40. That is pretty amazing to me. I lost my "old" guys at 24, 26 and 32.
