Healthy Horse appHealthy Horse App

Determining a horse's body weight is important for weight and feeding management, and administration of medication. The Healthy Horse App will allow horse owners and professionals to estimate the body weight of adult Arabians, stock horses, saddle horses, ponies and miniature horses using equations developed through University research by entering in the equine's height, body length, neck and girth circumference. Ideal body weight and a body weight score (to assess the likelihood of being over-weight) will also be calculated for Arabians, ponies and stock horses from newly developed University of Minnesota research. This app gives an estimate of an equine's body weight and should not replace examination by a qualified professional.

Hay price calculatorHay Price Calculator

Buy hay the smart way! Many horse owners and hobby farmers purchase hay by the bale. However, the more economical way to purchase and compare different hay types is to calculate the price per ton. The aim of the Hay Price App is to aid hay buyers in calculating price per ton and to provide cost comparisons of small square, large round, and large square-bales. Hay buyers simply select the bale type, enter in the bale weight and price per bale, and the Hay Price App calculates price per ton, allowing the buyer to compare and choose the most economical hay. This app does not take into account hay quality when determining economics.
