Action Point: Perform a body condition score at least monthly on each horse.
Rational: By recording and performing the BCS of each horse at least every month I may be able to detect a loss or gain of condition, therefore helping me intervene early if necessary.
Steps to Achievement: In order to achieve this goal I need to get more experience by practicing on a variety of different horses. Within the next month I will practice on a few friends horses to get a better feel of the scores.
Action Point: Further improve my unit 1 goal regarding keeping my equine records organized.
Rational: To further improve my organization I will put my equine information into the Horse Health Check Record template this week (week 2) that was provided in this unit. By using a template it will be easier to read as opposed to random papers in a binder.
Steps to Achievement: In order to achieve this goal I will print off the Horse Health Check Record and transfer my information into the templates, while still using the binder and divider method.
