Earlier Android "Contact" apps did not even support birthdays and  
would display them exactly as sent i.e., as the standard date/time  
string in UTC. The app in ICS, though, does have support for the  
birthday field and is working for on my Galaxy Nexus device.

If you generate a sync log that includes the contact data being sent  
to the device, I can try to take a look and see if anything weird pops  
out. Also, does the timezone on the device match the timezone in your  
Horde account prefs? Just grasping at straws though since it shouldn't  
really matter; I don't see how tz can matter since tz data is not sent  
as part of the protocol for contact messages.

Anyway, see http://wiki.horde.org/ActiveSync for more information on  
how to debug, provide log files etc...
