Here is new  stamp  on the Year of the Horse from Serbia. The first stamp shown above is one of the best stamps on year of horse stamps issued so far. The design is exquisite.

The year 2014, as the Year of the Horse covers the period from 31st January 2014 to 28th February 2015. The 2014. is the Year of the Wood Horse. The last Year of the Horse was in 1954 as the repetition cycle of the same combination of sign and element occurs every 60 years. The Year of the Horse occurs every 12 years but the Year of the Wood Horse every 60 years.

That’s why all the people born in 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002 should work on what they really want, because in 2014 it will be easier to accomplish than usual.

General characteristics of people born under the sign of the Horse are: activity, energy, independence, freedom ­loving, have style and good taste, give all for love. Patience is not their strong suit. He wants to wildly gallop towards the obstacles, without looking neither left nor right. The Wood Horse is as volatile as the other Horse, but it has better control, and better sense of discipline and is ready for reasonable discussion.
