The oldest horse was, out of doubt, the famous Old Billy.
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.
