    Just do her the favor of REALLY watching her move before and after a workout for any signs of pain. ALSO, use long warmups and long cooldowns to keep her comfortable. I rode "Corporal" the year he died at 27yo. (1982-2009, RIP)

    Thanks again guys, Corporal thanks for the tip! My BO actually just texted me today and said that my old girl plowed through about 4 fences that were brand new as of today to go into her stall an hour earlier than she does. Maybe that's her method of keeping fit when she's old: pile driving through the fences!
