I love old horses who look like they enjoy their life!

That's incredible. He's adorable, too! I'm glad he seems to be enjoying his retirement. He looks like a sweetheart.

LOL, they need a better editor. Not only is he a stallion/gelding/nag, but his health is in good health .

That is an incredible story and even if he wasn't really 51, he is clearly very old and is evident by the gray on his face. Amazing that he is still in such good shape at that age.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Mango- we're in the process of it :P they wanted us to go through snail mail so it's taking a while. It would truely be amazing to see her registered again though!

I highly doubt that she'll make it more than another year or two, as her health is beginning to deteriorate, but still. She's very likely one of the oldest if not the oldest living mare right now. You don't hear about 40-50 year old mares half as often as you do geldings.

I wonder what Shayne's story is. Imagine how much a horse that age could of gone through...he's far older than most of our forums members!

Wow he's looking sooo good! I'm sure he was quite beautiful when he was young!

I'm confused, they said the oldest horse ever lived to 62? I'm guessing it couldn't be verified or isn't counted by Guinness? I'm guessing he might have some Friesian in him?

There must be something in the water over there! I was proud of getting Rooster to 28, but he had more ailments than 5 horses combined!

Your mare is truly a miracle Endiku! Hope she lasts forever!

FG, that's what I was thinking, about the water there!

Makes my "old" girl, T, look like a spring chicken at 24!

Wow my friend had a paint mare that was 43, but then she sold her about five years ago. She used to use her for barrels, but then got into trail riding. I wonder if she's still alive.
