I'm a Sag born on the cusp of Capricorn. I always assumed that explained my deep love of dogs, since I missed being a Capricorn by 8 hrs. I do love horses, and enjoy my neighbor's horses like they are my own. Once I discovered Chinese horoscopes, all was revealed. I was born in the Year of the Fire Horse, and they believe that Horse, Tiger, and Dog are all linked. When looking for a mate, you look at those from your group. It explains much about me, but I still find it ironic that I was basically double-horsed. I do have an extremely independent streak ten miles long!
Cool stuff.
