Ingatestone: Could Shayne Be World's Oldest Horse?
A horse is set to gallop into the Guinness record books for being the oldest in the world.
51-year-old Shayne has been living at the Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary in Ingatestone for the past seven years now.
Although the thoroughbred has arthritis he still enjoys a trot around the field and shows no signs of slowing down.
Founder of the Sanctuary, Sue Burton, has been telling Heart: "We like to think the secret of our success is in allowing the animals to relax and to ask nothing of them.
"We do a lot of holistic work with them including reiki, shiatsu, bach flower remedies, natural selection herbs, aromatherapy and try to enrich their environment as much as possible to make their lives more interesting.
"Shayne enjoys his life here at the Sanctuary, He is fed in the morning then goes out in the fields for 5/6 hours and then is back in for his dinner and suppers and then bedtime!"
