Happy Birthday to all horses

The Queen Of The World informs me that today is every horse's birthday (offer void in Southern Hemisphere).  I hadn't known that, but it seems worth a celebration.

Oh yeah, Happy New Year, too!

Wow! And just like that, I know more. Thanks!

Did not know that! Coincidentally I am reading Ghost Riders by Mark Felton about the rescue of the Lipizzaner horses at the end of WW2. The Americans and Germans collaborated to effect the escape of the horses as well as POWs from the hands of the Russians. Great book.

I knew that, but then again, I worked part-time in the horse racing industry for 12 years.

It's true. Theoretically, two thoroughbred's, one born January 2nd 2020 and the other born December 31st 2020, are both two years old on January 1, 2022. Of course, those dates are unlikely because most foals are born in the spring.
