Cock Horse

You don't see this very often!

Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
And she shall have music wherever she goes

World's oldest living horse?

6a015391a867e3970b01675ec3c3eb970b-pi (492×409):

Old Billy, pictured above with Squire Henry Harrison, has gone down in history as the world's oldest horse. He was born in 1760 in Woolston, Lancashire, England and was a barge horse, owned by Mersey and Irwell Navigation, during his working life.
Old Billy died on November 27th, 1822 at the incredible age of 62. Mersey and Irwell Navigation had his head stuffed which was  later presented to Manchester Museum.
I suspect thee are ponies that have lived at least this long.
