Planning ahead to conceive a healthy “Horse baby”

There is a Chinese saying that goes:


It means that among the ways that one can show unfilial conduct to one’s parents, to have no descendants is the worst of all. The arrival of a newborn brings great joy not only to new parents, but also to the rest of the family! If you are planning for a Horse year baby, you are in the right place!

Let’s take a look at the personality of babies to be born in 2014, the Year of the Horse.

The Horse year baby is generally energetic, warm-hearted and intelligent. Besides being cheerful and talented, he loves to be in the limelight. His positive outlook in life will make him popular among his peers. Horse year babies will grow up to be working adults who possess great passion for their work. Coupled with a “never say die” attitude, they will not give up easily in the face of adversity.

This is why the Chinese often describe a capable person as “Qian Li Ma” [千里马], which literally refers to a swift horse that can cover a thousand miles a day.


If you wish to have a Horse year baby, be prepared as he is likely to grow up as an impatient child who enjoys freedom and dislikes restraints. Being fast learners, their interests are usually superficial and they tend to have short attention spans. At times, they can be quite hot-tempered and unreceptive to advice.
