Elmer Bandit at 37 years old
Elmer Bandit, Horse Hall of Famer last year at aged 37

Raj at 24 (the guy in front. the guy in the back is Chance, aka "MrChancyPants" who is letting Raj take the heat for whatever is coming because thats how he rolls)

note the similar expressions between Elmer and Raj  :)

I call that "the laser eyeball". I swear you can feel that stare from a quarter mile away....

Reading up on Elmer Bandit, who passed away this week. A record Holder for logged trail miles (over 20,000!) he competed actively all last year and a post mortem showed that while he didnt really have good teeth anymore, everything else was just fine.

I'm reading on how they took care of him, his trail attitude, etc and am noticing alot of correlations between Elmer and Raji.

Old Horses Rock :)

I had no idea they got that old! To be honest, I have no idea what the life span of a horse is...

Even Raji at his venerable 26 is about 80 in people years. but he doesnt know it ;)
