Do you know horses are living longer these days?
Do you know horses are living longer these days? It used to be early to mid twenties were considered old, now they're surviving into their "thirty" somethings. In 2004 I watched a 34 year old Quarter Horse take 3rd place in cutting out of over 50 other kids at the AQHYA World Show in Texas. As a kid I rode a Appaloosa named "Rusty" who live to be 43. Remember "been there done that" horses are awesome for taking the young riders out on the trail with them attached to a pony line, building confidence, teaching riding lessons, taking beginner's to the shows, small children, therapy for sick & disabled people, almost always the favorite horse in their barn, and worth more than their weight in gold ♥ This is Shayne, who is believed to be the oldest horse in the world at 51 years. Much love and many more years for you Shayne. ♥
