Cricket Muse asked:

How long is a horse’s lifespan? At the end of the book Myrad is riding his horse that appears to be well over 30 years old. Is that possible or did I read the information wrong?

Patrick Carr You are correct. It's the same name, not the same horse. Myrad became so attached to the original that he kept using the name.
Yakira Goldsberry Yeah, horses live to be at least 20-30 years, though some have been known to live longer (usually heavy horses, like Clydesdales).
Rose (Adventurous Bookworm) According to Google, horses average 25-30 years.
