I read a lot of threads where people are worried about buying a horse who is "old". Sometimes the horse really IS old and sometimes it's maybe 15, which is not "old", to me. But, I thought it might be fun to put up a thread about the joys of older horses.
I really love older horses. I guess, since I am older, I appreciate the way they are masters of conserving energy. And the way they still have the same enthusiasum for food. I adore how tolerant they are with children, (of course this depends on the animal). I dont' know, but I love the slow, patient and "wise" look in their eyes. I just want to take care of them , as if they were babies.
