Florida is a retirement spot for horses, too

ALACHUA, Fla. (AP) -- Whenever a horse arrives at Florida's Mill Creek Farm, Peter and Mary Gregory make the aging animal a promise: Never will that horse be worked or ridden the rest of its days.

Nearly all of the horses retired to the farm in north-central Florida had spent years working in law enforcement, military or other service jobs; some were seized by police.

There are about 130 horses on the sprawling 325-acre farm, where they will be buried once they reach the end of their years.

Peter is now 85 and Mary is 81. While they do have volunteers and a part-time paid employee to help with daily farm tasks, the Gregorys realize that as they also age they must plan for the farm's future.
