Celebrating Horses’ Birthday!

Did you know that all horses in the Southern Hemisphere celebrate their ‘birthday’ on the 1 August? Whilst they may not actually be born on this date, their birthday is standardised for comparison due to a historical lack of records of the actual birth date.

The reason for this date is that the weather at the start of September is beginning to warm up, encouraging mares to come into season. As most foals are born eleven months later, this means that many foals are born at the start of August. This differs in the Northern Hemisphere where warmer weather begins around December, which is why horses birthdays are celebrated on 1 January.

In celebration, we have a number of our products on special. Customers will be able to buy our 20kg and 40kg T&R Pony Cubes and T&R Pony Maintenance Cubes for 15% off from the 1 August 2017 until the 31 August 2017.

Happy birthday to all the horses and ponies out there!
