Shayne is believed to have inherited the title of the world's oldest living horse following the death of the previous holder in 2004. The 15 hands gelding is now enjoying a laid back retirement with four meals a day at the 40-acre Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary in Brentwood. Sanctuary founder Sue Burton said: 'We get people who rescue a horse and they say it is in its 30s and then it knocks them for six when we say we have one in its 50s. Shayne is a really good boy. He is still very active - sometimes we forget how old he is. 'I guess his secret to a long life is taking it easy in his old age and enjoying his retirement.' Shayne was brought to the Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary in April 2007 after spending many happy years with his previous owner in Chingford, Essex.
