01: Horse Information Sheets

Action Point: Compile a list with relevant descriptive & contact information for each horse on the premises.

Rationale: To facilitate communication and proper care of each horse, a brief description of the horse and relevant contact information should be posted on each stall, or, in the case of group-housed horses, in a central common area.

Descriptive information could include a photo of the horse, name, breed, colour, a distinguishing feature (chestnut with 1/2 pastern on left hind /bay with coronet band on right fore).

List the phone numbers of the owner, veterinarian, farrier, and perhaps a lessee or other person in case the owner is unavailable. Indicate whether the stable manager is authorized to make decisions regarding medical interventions on behalf of the owner, and include any medical history or extra care/caution that should be exercised when handling the horse.

If the horse has a stall, attach the info sheet to the stall door. The sheets for group-housed horses could be displayed in a prominent common area. Place copies of each horse’s Contact Sheet in a binder in the tack or feed room and in the office. Keep backup files on a hard drive and update as needed.

  2. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your site. You have some really great posts and I believe I would be a good asset.

  4. The next time I just read a weblog, Lets hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this blog. Come on, man, Yes, it was my replacement for read, but I really thought youd have something fascinating to convey. All I hear can be a few whining about something you could fix should you werent too busy looking for attention.
