Укатали (Уходили, Умыкали) Сивку (бурку) крутые горки

Hard life and old age have made one's health poor, one's attitude indifferent to everything ~ The feet are slow when the head wears snow. A cracked bell can never sound well. The bloom is off the peach (or plum) (Contrast: ~ An old ox makes a straight furrow. The older the fiddle, the sweeter the tune) ^ His dancing days are gone. He is but the shadow of his (former) self # Hills and vales have done in the horse. Ср. Был конь, да изъездился. Старость не радость.

На осунувшемся лице незнакомое, пугающе суровое выражение, запавшие глаза загадочны. Обдав каким-то кислым запахом, Игорь осторожно обнял отца, тяжело опустился рядом.
- Как это в ваше время говорилось: укатали сивку крутые горки, - сказал отец. (В. Тендряков. Путешествие длиной в век)

His haggard face held an unfamiliar, disturbingly grim expression, his hollow eyes were enigmatic. There was a queer, sour smell about him. Igor embraced his father, and then sank down heavily beside him.
"As they used to say in your times: 'Hills and vales have done in the horse'," his father observed.

* - Эй, браток, кровинушка родимая! Ты ведь злой был... помнишь? Крепкий был... а?...
- Был! Был твёрдым, а теперь помяли!.. Укатали сивку!.. (М. Шолохов. Тихий Дон)

"Heh, old chum! You used to be fierce - remember? You were tough once, weren't you?"
"Yes, I was! I was tough, but now I've had a real bashing! The hills were too steep for the old horse!"

* Немногих старших его друзей давно укатали горки, как поговорочную сивку. Они даже за грех не считали безучастие актёров к большим целям искусства. (К. Федин. Необыкновенное лето)

His older colleagues had long since slid down the hill of routine, for the feet are slow when the head wears snow. They did not even consider it reprehensible if an actor remained indifferent to the great purposes of art.

* - Вот тут Постников и отстреливался от фашистов...
- Портрет бы тут его повесить, - помолчав, сказала тётка...
Владимир Афанасьевич угрюмо ответил, что пока не так это просто, на что Аглая Петровна с живостью возразила, что она-то добьётся.
- Вот уж не укатали сивку крутые горки, - подивился Владимир Афанасьевич. (Ю. Герман. Я отвечаю за всё)

"It was from here that Postnikov fired at the fascists."
"His portrait ought to hang here," she said after a minute's silence.
Volodya answered her glumly that it couldn't be done very easily as yet, to which she briskly retorted that she would see that justice was done, he'd see if she didn't.
"Well, by God, you never say die!" he marvelled at his aunt.
