Year of the horse

It is year of the horse!  Well, nearly.

As we approach Chinese New Year and those of us working with Chinese businesses begin a mad scramble to get everything done before our Chinese friends disappear, I thought I'd post something I've wanted to write about for ages.

It seems that the year of the horse is the best possible year anyone could choose to ride across Mongolia...

The Horse (馬 午) is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac.   Apparently the coming "Wood Horse" year will be "a time of fast victories, unexpected adventure and surprising romance. It is an excellent year for travel and the more far away and off the beaten path the better."  

For more detail or if you think I made the above up, look here.  

Is it true though?!  Do you believe in astrology?
