Do you think a horse's life span depends on breeding? Do some breeds outlive others?
My mare is a thoroughbred, and she's also off the track. She is currently 17. One source I found on the internet said thoroughbreds live until 25-28 but can go past thirty with extra care. Here's the source: http://www.thoroughbredadoption.com/FAQ.aspx
What do you guys think?? I plan on keeping Jubilee going into her 30's!!
And ... if it is possible, how can I make sure she does live into her thirties? Is there anything I can do right now to ensure longevity?
