    My horse is only seven-ish and I am fifteen and a half. I am soo worried about what I'm going to do when it comes time for college and during that time how to pay for board and if I move away what to do then, I dunno. Its scary, he could be around for another 20 years and while I want him around, I don't know if its feasible. -shudder- I will do my absolute best to make it work though, even if it means leasing him out or whatever, I have dreams of retiring him on my own property though, lets just pray I can afford to keep him around while I work towards that.

    My horse is only six (although I think he turns seven soon...) and I'm 24. Lots of fun years left in both of us!

    I totally get what many of you are saying about college- my parents have told me if I can keep up grades and get some scholarships, I'll probably be able to keep Rainy throughout college, which is a huge relief. And Wallaby, I'm sorry you worry so! Really, I agree that you should enjoy the time you have with her- as I like to say, I'm too busy living to waste my time dying.

    Trust me, you'll have more than enough time to mourn her when she's gone. Don't steal your own happiness while she's still with you.
    That is SO true. I will really try to look at it that way, that I will have forever to mourn her and now to enjoy her. That is such an excellent point. Thanks for sharing that. I hadn't thought about it like I was burying her before her time but I guess that is true. She is so full of life that I'm definitely doing her a disservice by looking at it that way. Thanks.

    That is also very true. Thanks!

    I will try to keep these things in mind! I'm really too much of a worrier. It's a bad habit.

    Sorry for being so OT! Eeep!

    Haha, no worries Wallaby. ;) I also used to think about this (comparing ages) a lot with my horse.

    I'm 19 and she's estimated to be 2 years younger than me, which would make her 17 this year. I'm thinking she still has at least 8-10 years of riding left and then when she's ready I'll be spoiling her rotten in retirement. I look forward to the all years that we'll be having fun together! (that was worded awkwardly, sorry )

    I'm 14 1/2 my filly is 2 1/2 and the gelding I just sold was 9. I don't really think about age much.

    I'm 17 and Buzz is 14 turning 15 this year.

    I do think about my horses ages all the time. Not so much in relation to me (although my young and horse and I hopefully will be together until we are both too old to do much but enjoy quiet afternoons out to pasture).

    My thinking relates to how much time my beauties will be with me. Pony - 25, Mares - 22 and 19, Geldings - 19 and 13 (but with cancer so not so long I think).

    I'm guilty of thinking "wow, when I'm 40 Beau will be 30!" but other than that, I don't think about their age vs. my age.

    I'll be 20 on monday, Beau just turned 10, Cavalina just turned 1 and Daisy will be 17 at the end of the month :)
