Tick,at 55 you are just a baby.LOL. You still have a lot to look forward to.My best years trapping(numbers wise) were when I was in my 50s.
I played ball till I was 55.

I'm 81 and I'm impressed every morning that I'm still alive and taking nourishment.

I haven't been to the Alamo--so I haven't seen anything.
And that is the only thing on my bucket list.But then I would have to fly and that is one thing I have never done.And my son in law is an airplane mechanic and owns a plane.LOL--birds were meant to fly-not me.

Beav and Bogmaster, wow, there were alot of beavers accounted for then between you. Although I never met either of you personally and probably never will, it seems like I know you both,through name and reputation. and all I can say is Wow, they caught more beaver then I will ever see

That is a lot of Hoss...most likely Percheron, maybe even a cross, given hoof size and amount of feathering. They ride like a lazy boy wide chair, hard to fall off .

I know folks in their late seventies, even some early eighties who still ride. I will always ride , too.
Fun picture cool

You are right Sharon, a Percheron,...If I remember correctly it weighted around 1500 pounds, (we never did use the hands measurement) just weight. We kept horses to work in the woods logging. I would ride them bare-back when they were old and quiet..lol
