|Robert Crook||Old Bones|
Exterminator had a great family that loved him until the day he died at the ripe old age of 30! He was retired at 9 yrs. of age when he went lame, while carrying a handicapped weight of 142 lbs,in his 99th (not 100th) race, but still finished 3rd. For 21 yrs.of retirement he lived on the Kilmer farms with his companions, Peanuts, who was an older pony when he came to live with Old Bones, and Peanuts II a young pony that lived with him to the end.
He is ,as far as I know, one of only two race horses to have a childrens book written about him.
While he was never handsome, he had a heart of gold and loved the crowds as much as they loved him. Ive read to my grandchildren about Exterminator, have two of the "Old Bones" books. Believe me, that great horse is not forgotten!
