Glue factory

I watched a movie "Whatever Lola Wants" and there's one line "25 years old is like one step away from the glue factory" that probably means to be closer to death. Can anyone tell me why "glue factory"?

Thanks in advance.

    Your interpretation is correct. Here's an informative Wikipedia entry that isn't too technical. The term is traditionally applied to horses, but as you've seen it can cover other animals as well.
