Woo Hoo! First stop: Maude Flanders!: Horse of the year Smarty Jones set to retire and be sent to stud, thanks to an affliction of "chronic bruising of the bottom of the cannon bone in all four fetlock joints." If only retirement were so...erm...graceful for humans.

Perhaps we are entering a golden age, a time where the best and brightest of our generation, be they equine or Dolphin, decide to live multi-act lives, instead of running themselves into the ground, playing out the string, overstaying their welcome and generally being the old fart in the corner who hangs on because of their ability to talk a good game folded into the shadows of their former talents. Or not. Still. Good on Mr. Jones. (Smarty, that is, though it is right and good to give Ufez thanks and praise at any time.) May he get as much nookie as his bad horsey self can handle.
