My horse, Pepe, I had for 26 years. I was 12/13 years old when him and I became a team. Pepe turned 32 this year and that is very very old for a horse. We put him to sleep yesterday morning with his best friend Honey who was 24 years old. The two of them have been inseparable for the last 10 years and the person who owned honey said putting Honey and Pepe down together is the right thing to do. The vet said they both lived full lives and its better to do it now then later.
