Several years ago in Maine, I ran 24 Carrot Horse Care, taking care of horses while their owners were away or too busy. I tossed hay, mucked stalls, exercised, medicated, and even hauled horses to vets for surgeries.
Most of the time, instructions and specifics were written down and tacked to the barn wall.
Sometimes, notes went missing.
Sometimes, horses went missing. (I once arrived at a Bowdoinham barn to find the horses gone, with not even a distant whinny to hear.I tracked them to a neighbor’s yard, a half mile down the road.)
At some point over the years and miles, I got to thinking:
- Wouldn’t it be great to store horse records and care instructions on a phone?
- Wouldn’t it be great to share that information with others, in times of need?
After working with CSFrontier, I’m proud to present StableMate. This horse care and management application will soon be downloadable to your phone or tablet. With easy sharing features, you can give friends, neighbors, vets, and barn managers access to your care and feed schedule. Never miss a farrier or vet call! Share an x-ray or report. Store your Coggins result.
Stay tuned for more information!
Given the choice between notes for your loved ones on a tailgate or Stablemate, we hope you’ll choose the latter.
