57-Year-Old Horse Celebrates His Birthday In Style!

Chief is a registered Quarter Horse gelding who was born, January 19, 1960!!!  He turned 57-years-old this year and celebrated his birthday in style.  From Civil War re-enactments to team penning to reining, Chief has done just about everything!  Chief may be famously grumpy, but his claim to fame is that in all his 57 years – no one has ever fallen off of him!

Chief’s owner, Diedre Wilkin, says he’s the kindest horse she’s ever known. He’s even been known to perform acrobatics to keep himself between a beginner rider and the ground.

    We had a Chief Red Cloud, appalosa pony 56 1/2 inches that lived to 34, purchased for $250, who was a 4_H project for a half dozen different kids, he won many national and state championships and was loved and cherished his entire life. When he was 15 years old we were offered $10,000.00 for him. He was an amazing part of our lives his whole life.

    The civil war? Really? I was also born in 1960, and as far as I can recall, the civil war happened quite a few years BEFORE 1960. Methinks someone is pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes. The Civil War, in case you idiots need a history lesson was in 1861-1865! If the horse is THAT old, well now, that’d be something.

      If you had read the whole article and not just reacted, you would have seen it said “reenactment”. No need to be rude or condescending and no one is trying to pull one over on you.
