In the Chinese zodiac, 2014 is the year of wooden horse. People born in the year of the horse are extremely animated, active and energetic. They are clever, kind to others, and like to join in a venture career. And they love to take center stage and delight audiences everywhere. Although they sometimes talk too much, they are cheerful, perceptive, talented, earthy but stubborn.
