Here I am thinking he's around about 12 or so, given that he was advertised as 4 when I bought him 7 years ago. Had the vet out to do our yearly teeth float and jokingly asked him to age Max via teeth (this guy is very smart, and I trust his knowledge)
He aged him at 18, at least! Bit of a shocker for me. I feel as though a few years have been snatched from us. I'm not letting it get me down though, this horse has enough life in him to fuel 3 others, we have a lot of journey left yet. It's nice to have a more accurate guess for care down the road though. And that would explain the minor arthritis development over the past year.
That also means that all those times where I blamed his spazy Arab-ness on being young, he was just being a spazy Arab. Silly horses.
