We are excited to announce that the Healthy Horse app has been updated with new visuals, additional breed-types and options to use the app in Spanish and with metric units. Additionally, the app includes links to new articles on managing thin and overweight horses.
The app is available for use on both IOS and Android devices.
To use the app, owners and professionals select the equine breed type and enter the equine’s height, body length, and neck and girth circumference and the app will estimate the horse’s bodyweight and ideal bodyweight.
Determining a horse’s bodyweight is important for feeding management, health maintenance and administration of medication. The Healthy Horse app is a research-based app that was developed by the University of Minnesota and University of Kentucky to allow horse owners and professionals the ability to easily estimate horse bodyweight. The app is sponsored by Purina.
