    He still looks every inch a champion. :D It’s easy to see why Flatterer has been one of Livingston’s favorite subjects.

    My avatar photo was taken when he was 27.

    Thanks for the link, wonderful stuff.

    Doesn’t he look magnificent for such an ancient warrior?

    Thanks Miss Woodford.

    Brings back memories of Flatterer splitting See You Then and Barnbrook Again. When I were a lad.

    Such a genuine racehorse, good to see Flatterer enjoying life.

    An enjoyable read, thanks

    Anyone care to name other horses who’ve made it to 30. Two is the best I can manage this early in the morning – Riverman and Hyperion who were both Entires.

    Given that neutering male mammals tends to increase lifespan, and female mammals tend to live longer anyway there should be at least several examples of thirty-something Geldings and Mares

    Thanks for that link – lovely to read about Flatterer and see him at that age – and what a great top-line he still has!
