Depends on where you're looking it up
The medical/physiological definition is that a filly turns into a mare at
sexual maturity - like a girl turns into a woman at puberty. But for
horses who are involved in different activities there may be different
definitions. A thoroughbred racehorse won't turn into a mare until she's
five. Go figure.

But that racehorse may turn five when she's only just over 36 months
old. :-) (Under English racing regulations anyway.)

Yes, american TBs will increase a year in age on 1/1 even if born on 12/31

*Actually a female horse is only a mare after it has given birth, I

*horse is a colt.

A female horse is a filly until reaching sexual maturity at about 24 mos,
then she's a mare. Unless you're a racing authority, in which case you may
have a different definition (the thoroughbred authority, for example, says
a filly is a filly until she's five, IIRC).


I was thinking it must be something like this. I'd feel silly calling
my 30 year old appaloosa a filly.


My mind is full of useless crap. Thank you, national veterinary examining
committee for guaranteeing that I will always have something to discuss at
cocktail parties.


I found it interesting! I also found the udder discussion interesting....
