Nancy Mace Talks About the Horse Neville Bardos and His Touching Story [VIDEO]
Last night on Rock Center with Brian Williams, Harry Smith reported on a horse by the name of Neville Bardos. Neville was destined for slaughter as he did not make it as a race horse. But lucky for Nev (as he is called in the barn) Boyd Martin came along and bought him for $799.99 at the county fair. Now the two of them are destined for the Olympics in one of the most grueling equestrian events – The Three Day Event – the equivalent of a triathlon for horse and rider!
I had that same bond with my horse Renegade. I acquired Renegade when he was just 18 years old and just lost him last year at the age of 40. Yes, I had him for 22 years. When I tell people about Renegade and how long we were together the question I get is always the same…”How long do horses live?” According to Wikipedia, the average horse will live between 25 and 30 years. So, I guess Renegade was above average. I miss him all the time but have Nikki and Fancy to keep me company now. Nikki is 8 and Fancy is 18 so I have many years to come with them.
