    Hahaha Hunters birthday is April first, but that is a guess as we are not entirely sure. I think the vet just picked that cus he is a little brat and April fools day seemed like the right choice. Lol He will be 5 wow already!

    Interesting topic. I just read a book on horses that said in the northern hemisphere most breeds are aged January 1st (regardless of actual birth date). In the southern hemisphere they are aged July 1st.
    I would think the actual birth date would be used, if known.
