How do I view the Horse Weight Record?

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.

Update and Reminders Release

Hi everyone!

We have been pretty quiet for the last few months, while we’ve gone through a location change and have worked on some major “under the hood” functionality required for the new features being developed!

Updates to Stable Manage

This morning’s release includes three things:

  1. A new feature called “Reminders”, which allows users to set reminders for any entry on their schedule.
  2. Improved Horse Weight Report, where users can now select a date range over which to view the progression of a horse’s weight.
  3. Improved Horse Details, where users can now see the date that a horse was added to Stable Manage, in addition to its foaling year or date.

Reminders

This simply presented but powerful feature allows up to three reminders to be set for any schedule entry. The schedule entry can be any type and it can be a once off entry or one that repeats. If the entry repeats, then the reminder(s) will be triggered every time a repetition of the entry approaches.

To see an overview and a step by step guide for creating, editing and removing Reminders, please refer to this article on our website: Reminders Overview.

Some simple examples of how Reminders could be used:

  • Set a Reminder for a once a month farrier schedule entry, to ensure that you have the right horses ready in time.
  • Set multiple Reminders before an important meeting or yard visit.
  • Set Reminders for each riding lesson or training session to ensure that staff, helpers and horses are in the right place at the right time.
  • Create a “Health Check” schedule entry with notes describing what should be checked and add a Reminder to it. When the Reminder is received, the Staff member can see from the notes what they need to do and record for the Health Check; e.g. check temperature, examine hooves, take stool sample etc.
  • Create a schedule entry of type “Other” within “Professional Visit” category. Allocate a Horse to it and notes reminding the assigned member of staff to call the breeder to discuss some aspect of the horse’s development.
  • .. and so on, the combinations are endless!
