Horse Weight Tape
An easy to use tool for estimating the weight of a horse or pony. Useful for calculating medication quantities such as wormers and in aiding dietary management. Weight estimates given in pounds and kilograms.
Measure your horse's weight as accurately as possible when calculating any wormer dose. Under-dosing is a sure fire way to build resistance. Add 10% to a weight tape estimate to ensure you give sufficient wormer.
Directions for use: Place the tape over the lowest point of the withers and pass around the horse as close to the elbow as possible. The weight tape should be pulled snuggly around the body and sit on a slight diagonal angle in the correct position. Read off the weight estimate.
