Nice, I had a horse til he colicked at 36, at least that was the vets estimate on his age, and he was guessing toward the younger end, so he could have been older. We were riding him, jumping him over low jumps, and barrel racing him (his love), til the day before he colicked. Looks like you've been taking good care of him :).

Yeah, we finally had to retire poor Flash 2 years ago. He was getting to the point that if you asked for more speed than a slow trot or if the ground was less than perfectly level, he was very ouchy on his front end. Sometimes on cool mornings, I will see him trying to run across the pasture with all those younger horses. He does pretty well for a couple hundred yards but then he has to stop and he will pay for it for a couple of days. That makes him really sore to do that.

he looks very good for his age. Poor guy, my old horse would try and run with duchess and thats how he would be, swore for a couple days.

I think he looks great for his age!
To be honest, I never would have guessed his age!

Aw! We have a horse at my barn whos older then dirt. Hes 41. Hes skinny though. No matter how much or what you feed him hes skinny. But you can see him run everywhere around that field but he always goes right back to his woman(32 year old mare whos lazy and fat. They been together sence she was 3.)

He looks great! I love seeing the old timers!

Aw, he looks great. I would have guessed... maybe fifteen. I have a 25 year old staying at my house. He's healthy as a horse (no pun intended)... only a little fat and lazy.
