    I think it is incredible- I wish I could have kept my 1st horse, AQHA Play N Splash forever. I tried writing to his current owners and they never responded. His birthday is 05-02-91 so he will be 19 this year. Good for you for keeping your girl forever!!!

    I promised Hoover when I rescued him he would be with me until one of us died...if it's me, he then becomes the property of the rescue where I board, so he never has to leave. They even gave me permission to have him buried there.

    Good topic Dani. I have only owned my horse a couple of years but plan on owning him the rest of his life. I have even made arrangements for him in case of my early demise. It will be interesting to see how many people have owned a horse all of it's life.

    I rode my old mare the first time when she was 4. Subsequently bought her and I was with her when she died at almost 37yrs of age. I bought my two geldings when they were 15mths old and they will be with me as long as I live or as long as they do.

    One of the geldings I own who's actually staring at me through our window{which faces the paddock} has been with us since he was a yearling. Although I owned hi the moment he hit the ground, we just didn't have the facilities till he was about a year.

    Yep, I will pull pictures when I am home. I've owned 3 horses who were with me for 16 years, and one for 11 years. One was put down because she lost all her teeth and she was going into renal failure, the one I gave away as a pasture buddy/family horse and the last one I sold as a beginner's horse.

    My parents bought 2 TWH when I was about a 6 mnths to a year old and they got another a year later. We kept all of them until they died. One died in the pasture about 6 years ago, another was put down about 2 years ago, and the last is still alive. I just turned 29 and Flame is turning 30(?) this year. I've spent almost my entire life with that horse....
