Rock has been at The Counting Sheep Farm for 5 years now, the only Thoroughbred of the six horses we own. We are not sure how old Rock is, but based on the barely legible lip tattoo he is around 28 years old, give or take a couple of years. He was badly injured in a freak accident (through no fault of his owner) before we owned him and has hernia just in front of his back leg, which is inoperable because of a heart murmur. Needless to say, this guy's been through a lot. Rock is the "babysitter" and new riders usually learn their first lessons on him. He is slowing down now and the arthritis is catching up. We are having a hard time keeping weight on him this winter and I have spent many a time praying for this gentle giant. So far he is keeping up pretty well for his age. We don't know how long we have left with him but we are cherishing every moment......
