The life expectancy of horses has increased, largely because we take better care of them. Most of us would like our equine companions to stay with us as long as possible and a common question is 'how long will my horse live'. The average horse lives between 25-33. The oldest recorded horse lived to be 52 years old.

At the time Waco was barely eating and his owners thought he was sick. But as it turned out Waco wasn’t sick he was just lonely.
