Calypso, believed to be Australia's oldest horse, dies on the Gold Coast aged 50

A much loved 50-year-old gelding, that lived for almost twice as long as the average horse, has died on the Gold Coast.

Calypso was thought to be one of the oldest horses in Australia when he celebrated the milestone with a birthday party in the Tallebudgera Valley on the official horses' birthday, August 1, last year.

Jenny Dyson-Holland, Calypso's carer, said she found the quarter horse dead in his paddock on Saturday morning.
