How do I view the Horse Weight Record?

Recording horse weight is a good way of correlating between feed, exercise, medication and condition. How to record Horse Weight is described here: How do I add or delete a Horse Weight Record?

To view how a horse’s weight has progressed over time, you need to display its Horse Weight Record.

There are two ways to access this report.

  1. From the Reports page
  2. From the Horses page.

From the Reports page

Click on the main menu and select “Reports”:

010-Reports

Stable Manage displays the Reports page. Scroll down to the Horse Weight Record:

020-ReportsPage

Use the search box to find the right horse. In this example we have typed the characters “Ba” (1) to find “Barkley”. We then selected Barkley from the list (2):

040-HorseWeightRecordSearch

Stable Manage displays the Horse Weight Record described below.

From the Horses page

Click on the main menu and select “Horses”:

050-MainMenuHorses

Stable Manage displays the Horses page. Locate the horse, again we’ve identified “Barkley”:

060-HorsesPage

Click on the action menu button for the horse:

070-HorseActionMenuButton

Stable Manage displays the action menu. Select “Horse Weight”:

080-HorseActionMenu

Stable Manage displays the Horse Weight Record described below.

Horse Weight Record

From either route above Stable Manage will display the Horse Weight Record for the selected horse.

At the top of the screen there are date selectors from which a date range of up to a full year can be selected. By default the most recent year’s worth of records is shown.

On the right hand side a graph shows the progression of the horse’s weight over time for the selected period.

TIPS:

  • If a weight was provided when first adding the horse, you will see a Weight Record recorded with the note “Horse Added”. Similarly if you edit the weight of the horse on the Horse Details screen, a Weight Record will be automatically saved with the note “Horse Updated”.
  • Stable Manage builds up a graph of the horse’s weight over time. When the first weight entry is added there’ll be a single dot on the graph, so when the second is added there will be a line joining two dots. As more and more records are added, a trend curve will emerge showing up to the most recent 12 months.
  • On some web browsers, if a new Horse Weight Record is added while on this screen, the report will need to be reloaded in order for the graph to correctly display the updated record.

How are Horses allocated to Schedule Entries on Stable Manage?

How are Horses allocated to Schedule Entries on Stable Manage?

Horses are allocated to Schedule Entries on the Allocation screen.

If you are unfamiliar with Allocations; first read the brief overview (it will take less than one minute): Overview of Allocations

There are two ways of accessing the Allocation screen for the date you want.

1. Select the date first and then select “Allocations” from the main menu.
2. Select “Allocations” from the main menu first and then select the date of interest.

Step by Step Example

We’ll start with a day selected, containing two Schedule Entries. The first “Feeding” is not going to need Attendees and the second “Schooling” has two Attendees already set.

If you do not know what Attendees are; have a quick look at this article before moving on: Overview of Attendees.

Two Unallocated Schedule Entries

Select Allocations from the main menu:

Main Menu - Allocation

The Allocations screen is displayed, both of the Schedule Entries are visible.

– There is an ADD HORSE button for each Schedule Entry allowing you to allocate unassigned (free) horses to the Entry. Any horses allocated in this way are horses without an assigned Attendee.
– There is a SET HORSE button for each Attendee on an entry. These buttons are for allocating a horse to the specific Attendee.

Set an Unassigned (Free) Allocation

Allocation Screen without Allocations

Click an ADD HORSE button for any entry to add an unassigned horse allocation:

Add Horse Button

Select a horse, either by searching (type its stable name) or by clicking the “show all horses” link to bring up a pick list.

You can use the switch to choose whether or not the search will include horses marked as “Deceased” or “Unavailable” on the Horse Details screen. By default they are not included.

When you have selected a horse click the SAVE button:

Add Horse Pegasus

We can see that PEGASUS is allowed to the Feeding Schedule Entry.

To change to a different horse click on a horse’s name and a similar dialog will appear.

Allocations screen with first Allocation set.

Set an Attendee Allocation

Click the SET HORSE button opposite any attendee:

Set Horse Button.

A dialog similar to the unassigned allocation dialog appears.

As before you can use the switch to choose whether or not the search will include horses marked as “Deceased” or “Unavailable” on the Horse Details screen. By default they are not included.

The Attendee is displayed as a reminder for who you are going to assign a horse to:

Edit Horse

As before, search for a horse or click “show all horses” to select the horse from a pick list, then click the SAVE button and the dialog will close. In the example we have allocated Barkley to Jennifer:

Edit Horse - Different Horse Selected

We can see Barkley allocated to Jennifer on the Allocation screen:

Attendee Allocation Set.

TIP: If you have a full schedule, the filter box in the top right can be useful to reduce what is displayed.

Allocations Filtered.

Then repeat the process for the rest of the Schedule Entries that you want to allocation.  It’s amazing how fast this process becomes when you get used to it. In real time the example is fully allocated in less than a minute:

Completed Allocations.

Select Schedule from the main menu to return, we can see the allocated horses as “badges” on each Schedule Entry:

Schedule with complete Allocations.

The great news? .. any change or adjustment to your Schedule Entries, Attendees and Allocations, is immediately visible to your staff when they check the schedule to see what’s coming up next – TIME SAVED!

 

Update – new Horse Activity/Work Status options!

Today’s minor release of Stable Manage has added two additional Horse Activity/Work Status options:

  1. In Foal
  2. On Pasture

Horse Activity Work Status Examples (20160212 Release)

These are available on the Horse Details screen which you can find out more about here: How do I view or update the details of one of the horses at my yard in Stable Manage?

Tip: The button beside the Activity/Work Status for a given horse is a short cut to the Horse Details screen, which saves you from having to use the Horse Menu on the right hand side.

What is the Horse History report and how does it work?

The Horse History report is a tool, which can be used for multiple purposes such as; an input to invoicing your clients, a source of data for the progress of each horse over time and a single point of reference for the activities of each horse. A horse is scheduled for activities on the Allocations screen.

A step-by-step guide to generating a report follows, including how you can download the report as an Excel (.xls) spreadsheet or a Comma Separated Value (.csv) file.

We have chosen Excel XLS and CSV files because both can be imported by almost any spreadsheet (office) software on any platform; Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android..

For the example I will use a horse called Barkley at our fictional yard Taylor Dressage & Eventing.

Schedule

In the simple schedule below you can see there are a number of repeating activities to which Barkley has been allocated:

01-SimpleSchedule

We will view a Horse Schedule History report for Barkley.

Access the Horses Screen

From any screen in the system, click on the main menu and select Horses

02-MainMenu

Select Horse History

Identify the horse you are interested in and either, click the horse’s stable name (Barkley) or select Horse Schedule History from the horse action menu (cog icon) on the right hand side.

03-Horses

I select Barkley and Stable Manage loads up the Horse Schedule History screen.

Horse History

By default the system will display the most recent month’s worth of activities that are on his schedule across all activities.

Select Activities

Click SELECT ACTIVITIES.

04-ClickActivities

Stable Manage displays a popout form where you can tick or un-tick the activities you are interested in. For the sake of our example I have left all activities selected (ticked).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Activities can be used to fine tune the report you wish to generate, for example you might select activities influencing client invoicing, health, training and so on.

05-ActivitiesPopoutClick the CLOSE button to hide the activities popout again.

06-CloseActivitiesPopout

Select a Date Range

A Horse History report can contain a large amount of data so we recommend limiting your selected date range to something manageable and relevant to your needs. For our example I have selected a single month.

Click FROM and select the start date for your report. I have selected October 1st:

07-From

Click TO and select the end date for your report. I have selected October 31st:

08-To

Generate and/or Download

Optionally you can click DISPLAY REPORT to refresh the simplified version of the report displayed by default on screen:

Note the HORSE DETAILS information displayed at the top of the screen. As well pertinent information about this horse, this also includes the yard where the horse is resident, owner contact summary and the horse’s residential status. In our example Barkley is Full Livery.

09-WebView

At any time you can click the DOWNLOAD REPORT button to open the download menu, where you can select to download the report for the horse, activities and date range currently selected. The download options are an Excel (.xls) spreadsheet or a Comma Separated Value (.csv) file:

10-Download

Your web browser will either download the report directly to your default downloads folder or it will ask where you wish to save the file. The file is named: “<stable name>_<from date>-<to date>.xls/.csv” by default.

This means that we have the following report file name downloaded: “Barkley_2015-10-01-2015-10-31.xls” in our example.

When opened in spreadsheet software the report appears as follows:

11-Spreadsheet

The data in the report can then be used for whatever further purposes you wish, such as accounting, invoicing or data analysis.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions.
