You wouldn’t feel very special if your birthday was on the same day as everybody else’s, would you? Well, spare a thought for our elegant equine friends who share theirs — and no amount of whinnying can change it!

Nearly all breeds of pedigree horses celebrate their birthday on August 1 in the southern hemisphere. In the northern hemisphere it’s January 1. This may seem a bit strange, even downright unfair if you’re a handsome hoofed creature keen to shed your saddle for solo birthday shenanigans, but there is a reason for the standardisation and it has to do with the seasons. Apparently, a mare’s oestrus cycle begins with prolonged daylight, which usually happens at the beginning of September when the weather starts to warm up. This means mares who are bred successfully in early spring will have their foals the following August. A consistent date also helps with the organisation of horse events.

No matter what the reason, if you know a horse who deserves lots of kisses, giddy up. It’s time to celebrate the fact that we have them. Birthday or not.

Reuben puts pen to paper to share his Shard experience

Last August we spoke to Reuben Cullen for our In Conversation feature about how his time spent holidaying on the Mornington Peninsula fuelled his creativity and imagination from a young age. Reuben’s always got a real kick out of showing people the world through his eyes, and his used his own experience with addiction and recovery to inspire and empower children to be their own hero in his book that he released last year, A Hero Born.

Pens ready for issue two

Pens ready for issue two. Created by two booksellers out of nothing more than a love of reading, writing and local art, the PENinsula Literary Journal launched last year. The first issue received great acclaim, so they’ve now begun to focus on their second issue. The journal, published and edited by Celeste Deliyiannis and Emily Westmoreland, has welcomed on board K.M. Stamer-Squair as the assistant editor for issue two.
