Saint-Germain-les-Arpajon, France - Raymond Gureme steps over the low electric fence to enter one of his many fields and attend to his ponies.

One is just two days old and feeding from its mother. Gureme will turn 92 years old this coming August.

"I don't name them," he says. "I leave that to my grandchildren."

Born in 1925, in France, to Roma parents who had a circus and travelling cinema, he was the third of eight children - none of whom have outlived him.

As was practice, he did not attend school but instead joined the family business as a teenager, travelling with them from France to Belgium.
