To be the *most* helpful, I would need the entire conversation between  
horde/device for a fresh contact sync - there is information exchanged  
during the *initial* contact sync that indicates supported/ghosted  
field names (the SUPPORTED responses if you are looking at the logs).  
However, for the actual contact data itself, it should be fine if you  
just include one with a birthday. It might also be helpful if you  
could provide the value of the birthday field, as it exists in the  
contacts backend that horde is using.
