Yeah, that looks like ours, but I can only allow them to graze for small amounts of time! Who would’ve thought! How old is Sawyer?
"Early twenties" is as specific as my dentist would get. His teeth are beginning to wear out. He is definitely not as young as I was told whem I bought him. :(
Wow! I have several in their twenties—4, maybe 5, and they’re still going strong. They’re a little stiff some days, but great for trail rides. That’s why I’m getting the foal and investing in the future. I hope Sawyer keeps going for you! I’ve seen really old horses remain trail ready into their 30’s. I read about one in its 40s! That would be amazing.
I don't know, our trail rides are pretty strenuous, and I'm not a light rider. We'll see. If I'm feeling like I'm mistreating my horse, this isn't really fun for either of us. But our feed trial is barely started.How long and difficult are the trail rides you take your oldsters on?
Different ones do different trails. Penny is 23, and she does pretty long rides. Cowboy does short rides. He could do longer, but he'd have to work up to it. My vet told me to Bute him before, then after the ride. I don't always do that, but I try to.
