The actual foaling date of a thoroughbred is seldom noted except in his registration papers, all race horses becoming a year older on January 1, but Old Bones is an exception. He always was an exceptional horse. The popular old gelded son of McGee - Fair Express, according to general estimate among horsemen, approximates the age of a 90 to 100 - year - old human, but. Exter - rrdnator holds his age well. He's not as trim and rounded as he vas in his heyday, but Peter H. iCurran, farm manager at Sun 'Briar, says they now chop his hay for him because his teeth are Iworn pretty smooth, but his an - 'petite is good and he still romps in the paddock with his pony companion, Peanuts III.
