The Horse's Birthday
Like most horse lovers, I never forget that the horse's birthday is on the 1st of August every year. However, I've been wondering, how did the horse's birthday come to be on the 1st of August and how did there get to be a single day that all horses share as their birthday?
Personally, I believe that when horses and horse racing were very big industries (not saying that they aren't now), horse owners found that there were so many horses and that it was hard to keep track of their exact ages and so decided to create one special day that people would celebrate as the horse's birthday.
If anyone has any theories or done any good research as to how the horse's birthday began, I'd love to know.
