Following four years of research Dodson Horrell has developed a two-sided weightape which if used correctly is the most accurate recording of horse's weight when compared to weighbridge weight.
Your WeighTape allows you to estimate the weight of your horse or pony either by: using a simple length measurement or a formula to calculate your horse's weight.
How to use Weightape: Use the Horse side of the tape for those animals 14.2 hands high or taller or the Pony side of the tape for those shorter than 14.2 hands / position the WeighTape around your horse / the WeighTape should lie from just behind the elbows to over the lowest point of his withers / lightly tighten the WeighTape around the horse and read the weight from where the free end of the WeighTape finishes.
To use the formula: Place the WeighTape around the horse's girth and note the length in centimeters / then measure the length from the point of shoulder to the point of the buttock keeping the WeighTape against the contour of the horse's side / regular use of the WeighTape will help you keep your horse or pony at the correct weight and alert you if his weight begins to creep up / remember to keep your animal at low risk from laminitis they should be at Conditon Score 2 to 3 which means that you cannot see the ribs but should be able to feel them easily when you run your hand along their side.
