RE: [RC] Old Horses - grannynhorses

Well, there's Tulip, ridden by Les Carr. Tulip just turned 20 last
month & is just shy of 20,000 miles.  Really.  Tulip doesn't do 100's
any more, but loves multi-day 50s.  He just finished 250 miles on the
Ft Shellbourne ride & is getting ready for Bryce, God willing.  He
gets really ticked off if you take another horse out of the pasture
or leave him behind, and his vet couldn't find any reason
(health-wise or oterwise) to retire him yet. So Tulip's retirement
date is up to Tulip.  Les's new replacement equine (the mule) is
ready to step up to the plate whenever Tulip gives us a hint that
he's ready to be a couch potatoe.

Not to bring back the original thread but I am wondering how many
horses are competitive in 50 and/or 100 milers into their late teens
and early 20's.  By competitive I mean 5 1/2 - 6 1/2 hr 50's over
relatively flat terrain (midwest).  And I mean all other things aside
like lameness etc...I'm talking a healthy, in condition horse that
has over 1000 miles of endurance competition already and shows no
signs of wanting to stop.
