My filly was born in August of 2011. Since horses age one year on January 1st (therefore, January 1st would have hit when she was 5 months old), would she be a yearling this January 1st, or a two-year old?
I could be wrong, but I am under the impression that for breed show purposes, they age on January 1st. So technically, you could have a foal say October 2012, and show it in 2yr old classes starting Jan 2014. Even though the horse would only be 14 months. ( not that I would do that). I've never showed registered horses so I'm just spouting what I've always been told. Posted via Mobile Device
