I'm sure Google could tell me but it's better from the horse's mouth, as it were - 33 seems a fine age for a horse, how long do they last, in the best of conditions?
Well, he's outlived all the horses who were his fellow hackers/competitors. To be honest he's reached a very good age and every year for the last 5 or 6 I've thought he might not be with me much longer. Ponies can live longer than horses, but my boy, who is a proper horse, is doing really well. He's been retired from any type of 'work' for the past 6 years and is now just enjoying a life of being pampered. And I just love him to bits. If I could, I'd add a huge great heart emoji now.

💙 There you go veem, a big heart for your boy! I kind of miss having an oldie to pamper. My daughter's first pony made it to 39. He had virtually no molars left and was almost completely blind but still managed to tank off while being led regularly!

❤️ another one for your lovely boy, Veem.

I posted my diy Covid test at 16h yesterday, collection at the post box was due at 17h. I had the result ar 22.01 this evening - pretty good going, I thought.

Negative, by the way, as I expected. The Covid study I report to daily asked me to have a test based on reactions following vaccination last week, pretty minor that I wouldn't have even considered reporting if there hadn’t been a tick list when I recorded my vaccination.

Is it wrong to smile at this ? :P

@ AtS, perhaps they are trying to figure out who the new Trump II will be, and then shout: let go the anchors here! Not a pleasant thought.

Thank you for the congratulations, it’s so good to receive such lovely news, particularly at this time. Rowan is our third great-nephew and we also have 1 great-niece, all of whom live quite a distance away. So we won’t be seeing him or them for quite some time, particularly as we don’t/can’t go anywhere due to Covid.
