We recently said good bye to Ourasi who passed at the age of 31. We tend to think of 31 as an old horse. It turns out it isn't as old as we think.
Friends and supporters of the Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary in England are in mourning as their good friend Shayne passed at the age of 51. You read that right, 51. Until they had to put him down last month, his main problem was a 'touch' of arthritis.
Why do I bring this up? Why not consider adopting an older horse?. Are you afraid to adopt a new friend thinking your time together may be short? As Shayne shows, you just never know.
In the meanwhile, here is a video of Shayne at the ripe young age of 50, shot last April.
May he RIP.
