Endiku, just supply us with her registered name. It just sounds odd that someone with a horse that old would not be interested in some publicity. Even if others have lived longer, she may be the oldest living horse.

BTW, if I'm not mistaken, AQHA will show a horse as deceased beyond a certain age (I seem to think it's 25) unless they know otherwise.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

AQHA does declare deceased at 25 unless owners update them.

Here's a few I currently own or have had the pleasure of knowing.

This is the old man, Hondo. 26 in photo. He will be 30 next year.

This is Hondo's sire, Doc. He was in his early 30s in this photo, he passed at 36.

This is me with my first heart horse, Bunny. She was around 25 in this photo.

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.

There's a couple of older horses at the barn I board at (Skeeter, the BO's first horse, is 30 and Hopi, a boarder's horse, is 31).

The only old horse I have a photo of, though, is Candy, 27yo QH (well, she's 28 now lol). Ex-broodmare (had something like 13 foals O.o), polo pony and erstwhile Girl Scout horse camp pony.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Wow these guys are awsome I thought Tequila is old at 20 even though she acts like a 3 year old the way she spooks at silly things. LOL I hope I can look forward to her lasting a long time more.


Horses lend us the wings we lack.

ETS. She was born in 1962...I'm not sure if AQHA would have her pedigree up online, but thats something I could probably access pretty easily if they have them back that far, right? I really don't have a clue about that whole process.
Once a horse turns 25 you have to send a picture in each year or they will mark the horse as deceased.
