    Manchurochelys from China.
    Probably fake as is usual.
    This is how they usually look

    I wondered about that. It looked a little too good and several look very simular.

    Most fossils from China are fake, sadly.
    An awful lot from the USA and Morocco, too. :(

    That's sad.
    How can you tell if they are real?

    My last horse was euthanized three or four years ago and the vet asked if I'd like to take in a couple more. He had two retired racehorse mares, older animals, that would love to live out the rest of their lives here as pet animals. I said yes, but then called him later and said no. I decided that while I love spending time picking up horse poop, brushing, tending to them, it was nice to not have that responsibility anymore. I miss them, but it's nice to not have them anymore.

    I can understand your decision very well. Keeping two horses is a lot of work. I feel to old too for having horses though I love them.

    Before leaving Texas we sold all of our horses but one. She was a retired race horse that was then used heavily as a brood mare. Her tattoo was to faded to read so we were unable to ID who she was. The vet estimated her to be over 30years old when we got her. Had her for five years before moving. Payed my parents to let her spend her last few years in their pasture living the easy life. She passed away in June this last year.
    I'm still young enough to handle retraining a horse but I would like more land before getting another.

    I love riding but don't have the room for a horse.
    Maybe a small donkey.

    You live in a town with many people. There are usually no place for horses.:(
    I loved riding a horse. It gives you the feeling to be a part of nature. I`ve often seen wild animals from the back of my horse. It is a feeling you only can feel when you ride. To be one with nature and your horse.

    Thank you for your answer. When I was at your age I`ve done all work that you have when owning a horse. Repair fences of the horse pasture, help by the harvest of hay and straw. Feeding my horses and cleaning their stables.
    I had never help with these work but I don`t mind. I was young and strong, but 25 years older change a lot.
    I hope that soon you have horses again. They are lovely animals. The two I owned had been a life assurance on 4 or 8 legs...:D

    Lol. Then find someone who owns one and ask them if you can have a ride. Then at least half your dream can come true.
