Wow. That's all I've got...just wow.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I call total BS. Just the numbers they have about other horses are off. They don't even HAVE a verified real age for the oldest horse "Billy" - they say 62, but it's common knowledge that two records may have been mixed up/combined for two "Old Billys". It is NOT considered accurate. In general, the records for oldest horses to be verified are all in their 50's.

And if she had proof that she was 70, she'd be Guinness World Records.

Well what about the girl on here who's mare recently passed away at 50 something? She chose not to contact the AQHA about it, no reason to.

I believe it, she certainly LOOKS the part.

I think it's suss too. Oldest living donkey, posted on a feed website, that happens to be fed that particular brand of feed...

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
