What makes a mare a mare, and a filly a filly?

Ever wonder what the different types of horses are and what differentiates one from the other? No? Well, too bad, we’re going to tell you anyway.

Yearling – A yearling can be a male or female horse that is between a year and two years old…a yearling, get it?

Foal - A foal is either a male of female horse that is under one year old. A foal that is still nursing is called a “suckling”, and a foal that is no longer nursing is called a “weanling”.

Filly – A filly is a female horse that is not yet four years old.

Colt – A colt is a male horse that is under the age of four. A common misconception is that a colt can be male or female, but technically only males are colts.

Stallion – A stallion is a male horse over the age of four years. However, if the stallion is castrated then it no longer is referred to as a stallion. Once castrated, a stallion becomes a “gelding”.

Mare – A mare is a female horse four years old or older.

How Long Do Horses Live Anyway?

Most horses are expected to live between 25 and 30 years. Of course, their racing days will be over much earlier than that. “Old Billy” is the longest living horse on record having lived 62 years from 1760 to 1822 (his head is actually on display in the Bedford Museum in Bedford, England). More modern horses have been known to live into their fifties.

Horses are beautiful animals. We hope you enjoy our wonderful horse party supplies at your next birthday or other celebration.
