View Full Version : What age were your horses when you got them?

10th January 2012, 06:44 PM
All the horses you have owned or loaned.

Vote as many options as applicable but don't think you can vote twice on one age range, which is its inbuilt inaccuracy haha!

Poppy was a yearling and Oscar was supposedly about 7 (but that's questionable now)

Foxy was 4, Shetlands were 8, and 4 roughly and I believe Suze was about 7.

11th January 2012, 11:26 AM
Vinny was 7 or 8 (but extremely green for his age, only just backed). So was Masha (my first pony) and Taffy (another favourite pony).

Hasty and Megan were both 5. Kilo was 4 but officially turned 5 on the way home (it was New Year's Eve).

Miss Lane was 7 Months, Bella was 7, and Tessa was 9 xxxx

14th January 2012, 08:55 PM
Buttons was "12" when we got him but turned out he was late teens - he's gotta be late 20's by now, not that he knows it.
My mums horse was 4 when she got him, he's 20 now.
Bailey was 10 when we got him, he's 16 now (and still no better behaved than day 1!)
Wills is my loan lady, I loaned her age 13 and she'll be 14 early this year x

18th January 2012, 02:30 PM
Bramble was 3 months old when i bought her and i lost her 3 years ago when she was 22 years old to a twisted gut :(.
Danser i bred her out of Bramble :). She will be 21 years old in April.
Charlie was 17 month old when i bought him. He is now rising 5 and up for sale :(.
Wish was 3 years old when i bought him for my daughter. He is 5 in April and the best pony anyone could possibly buy, he has a very mature head on his shoulders. I was actually looking for something around 15 years old for her to come off the leadrein on.
Sky was 2.5 when i bought her and she is coming up 3 now, hopefully will stay with me for life :).

18th January 2012, 07:38 PM
Now there's a question ! I was told Belle was 12, but when she had all the trouble with her teeth last year vet said she was substantially older, at least late teens !!

19th January 2012, 03:43 PM
Tom was unknown age but somewhere between 26 & 28
Monts was 10
Jack was 14

20th January 2012, 02:52 PM
The amount of ponies I have been bought and then sold on would be pointless, the ones that have come to stay are my latest and poppy so I have only done for them.

Poppy 10
Jasper 11
Alfie 6 months
Charlie 1 yr
Flynn 14

20th January 2012, 11:16 PM
B was approx 24 (sold as a 19 year old, vet did teeth and said more like mid 20's so I decided 24 so he could turn 25 on our first ownerversary!) He's rising 31 now! (but could be older!!! can you imagine!!!)

Basil was rising 3
Puzzle was about 19
Henry was 9

Digby (RIP) was 10months old

23rd January 2012, 09:45 AM
Mitch was 2 when we got him. Looking back, i've had a lot of weanlings/yearlings etc. Even the slightly older 3/4/5 year olds have been mostly unbacked or in need of serious reschooling. I obviously liked a challenge!
