Foals, stallions and mares across the Southern Hemisphere will be horsing around and celebrating their shared birthdays today.
Perhaps they might eat some tasty treats like a special cake, and get some presents too!
The first of August was selected because of its proximity to spring, which is the ideal time for breeding and for mares to produce milk for their young.
The date was also selected to standardise birthdays for race horses.
Do you know a horse in the Highlands or Tablelands that will blow out some birthday candles today?
