Jan 1 The Day of Birthdays for all Thoroughbreds and The Start of Foaling Season. Dulce is the oldest thoroughbred mare we own, she is 13 this Jan 1st even though her real date of birth is April 13th. There's at least one unusual fact about Thoroughbred horses: Every Thoroughbred horse in the Northern Hemisphere has the same birthday. No matter what month a Thoroughbred is born, its birthday falls on January 1st. The jockey club will consider every racing thoroughbred horse
Where Do Race Horses Get Their Names? I not sure where Danger Kitten got her name from but it doesn't exactly describe her. She is one sweet mare! She came to the farm on May 2012. The owner had to relocate and was looking for a good home for Danger Kitten and her foal. I went to the farm to see her and knew I had to have her... She is one beautifully put together mare with a handsome colt at her side, we named him Louie Cat after his sire Lewis Michael and his Mama Kitten .
