Horses are very beautiful creatures. They can live with humans for 25-30 years. Many horses live to be over thirty years old, much longer than even the oldest cats or dogs. In fact, many horses live beyond the age of 30 if they have good care and health.
The oldest horse ever recorded was 52 years old.
On average, ponies outlive larger breeds of horses. Sugar Puff (1951 – 2007), a Shetland-Exmoor gelding, was cited as the oldest living pony in the Guinness Book of World Records at age 56. He was a fun pony – he used to come into the house at Christmas. If he was still alive then this Christmas he would have 67 years and he would be looking forward to a nice Christmas tree :)
In February 2012, at the ripe age of 51, an Irish-Draught cross gelding by the name of Shayne (1962 – 2013) from England was listed as the oldest horse in the world by officials at the Guinness Book of World Records. Other horses may have lived longer, but were never verified by Guinness. The oldest horse ever was called Old Billy, who was foaled in Woolston, Lancashire in 1760, and was 62 years old when he died on November 27, 1822.
