40-Year-Old Horse Decides To Party For His Birthday With Lots Of Spunk

Roberta Moore is the owner of a 40-year-old horse named Whiskey. They have always been together through thick and thin and have trained together and rode trails together, so as you can imagine they have a strong bond that only grew bigger as years passed.

At 40 years old, Whiskey is added to the list of the oldest horses to ever live. Now his routine has changed because his age has slowed him down, but Roberta loves him as much as she did the first day she took him home.  Let’s find out what Whiskey did this time from the words of Roberta:

”I have two horses which take up a great deal of my time. The oldest, Whiskey, has been my best buddy for more than 30 years. Due to his age, he has no teeth for chewing. So I gave him a soft feed and went on to watch a movie and decided to feed both of them after the movie. At about 11 just as my movie was finishing, the dogs started barking and going crazy. When I got there, he was standing in his stall waiting for his overdue dinner.

I secured him in and started to panic about where my other horse, Lillibet, was. I called and called and couldn’t find her. Finally, I looked in her stall, and there she was. She was knee-deep in new bedding, had her blanket on and plenty of fresh hay. She had no intention of leaving that stall for anybody! Seems that Whiskey had gotten tired of waiting for supper and decided to take matters into his own hands. He had unlocked and opened the gate and headed for the house. I fed them, found a second hook for the gate and went home. I did learn a lesson though, Whiskey’s dinner is now on time, every night!
