Opunake Beach 18/12/15

Today just before tea Grandad, Georgie (My sister) and Caro (Me) went down Opunakes main beach.  Opunake is located in South Tāranaki, New Zealand (Aoteroa). First we went to the playground and went on the swings, slides and monkey bars. Then Georgie and I did some beach sprints because we do "Surf Life Saving". It's where you do Beach sprints, Beach Flags, Knee Boards, Body Surfing and of course swimming in the sea. Most of the times I won but sometimes my younger sister won . Guess what tommorow we have a carnival for surf life saving tomorrow in New Plymouth. Then Georgie built a sand castle and Grandada took a few pics of me doing some hand stands in different poses and while we were doing that they took the "IRB boat sort of thing and they are orange and green". Then Georgie wanted to go back to the playground so I waited in the car then we went back to Nanna and Grandadas house where mum and dad and my other sister was with the fish and chips for tea.

Regardless of a horse or pony's actual birth date, for most competition purposes a year is added to its age each January 1 of each year in the Northern Hemisphere and each August 1 in the Southern Hemisphere. The exception is in endurance riding, where the minimum age to compete is based on the animal's actual calendar age.

Colt: A male horse under the age of four. A common error is to call any young horse a "colt", when the term actually only refers to young male horses

Filly: A female horse under the age of four.

Foal: A horse of either sex less than one year old. A nursing foal is sometimes called a suckling and a foal that has been weaned is called a weanling. Most domesticated foals are weaned at five to seven months of age, although foals can be weaned at four months with no adverse physical effects.

Gelding: A castrated male horse of any age.

Mare: A female horse four years old and older.

Stallion: A non-castrated male horse four years old and older. The term "horse" is sometimes used to refer specifically to a stallion.

Yearling: A horse of either Female/Male that is between one and two years old
