Hay ... it's a big day for horses

These gorgeous thoroughbred yearlings, who are yet to be officially named, celebrate their first birthday today at Warwick’s Bilena Stud.

IT WAS an early birthday cake of hay for these cuties yesterday as they prepared to celebrate their first birthday.

As would any excited toddlers, the yearlings basked in the attention from the Daily News and all wanted to be at the centre of it all.

Today, every horse across the country will get one year older, regardless of the day they were actually born.

This means even if your horse was born on July 31, it is still considered a yearling at one day old.

Thoroughbred ages were standardised for comparison back in the 1800s.

If you snap a cute photo of your horse in a party hat or streamers today, send it in to edit@warwickdailynews.com.au
