Joe is 28!

It's hard to believe, but Joe is only the third oldest horse in our barn, after Blackjack and Noble. Joe isn't mine - he belongs to Jill of Buckskin and Bay - but he's one of the very sweetest horses I've ever met. Here are some pictures of his sweet face, in honor of his 28th birthday. Visit Jill's blog for more pictures of Joe (and also Scout).



Happy birthday to a sweet boy, and many more good ones to come!

  17. Awwww, what a sweetie.

    I think what I love most about how we view horses now a days, is that horses get much better care and live so much longer. Used to be that 20...was the end for a horse and most folks looked at a horse that age as all used up and worthless.

    Now horses are living easily into their 30s, 40's and even 50's!
    Unlike our beloved dogs and cats, we get to enjoy our equine friends that much longer.
