Happy 13th Birthday, Wizard!

Thurs, 2/5/09

Wizard had a lovely but COLD birthday. My mom made him her famous homemade horse cookies and I fed him lots of carrots. He’s going to get some time off while I try to figure out how to get his feet more comfortable. In the meantime, stay tuned for my adventures riding some other horses in the barn :^)

    February 5th seems early for a baby to me. Is that normal for race horses?

    Anything after January 1 is OK for a Thoroughbred since the official birthday for all racehorses is Jan 1. Breeding season in the racing industry usually unofficially begins on Valentine’s Day. An early foaling date can be seen as an advantage for horses who are in 2- or 3-year-old races since every month of maturing matters.
