DSC03744

Gypsy, the Equine Encyclopedia, has something to say about at what age horses are considered “aged.”  Like all Shetlands, she is always watching, listening and learning. 

In equines, the term”aged” differs.  In the showring, horses over 6 years old are called “aged.”  In reality, most horses are considered old when they have reached 20 years.  Horses are in their prime from 6 – 10 years of age.
