Horse Weight Calculator Android App
 By FloridaCowgirl   •   24th Jan 2013   •   2,968 views   •   0 comments
Equine Form's Horse Weight Calculator App is a really cool app to have around the barn. Nearly every horse supplement, feed and medication including wormers, bute and banamine require that you know how much your horse weighs in order to know how much to give. Since your horse's weight can vary or your memory may not be the best, it's a good idea to measure before you give any medication. Now you have an app that makes it a piece of cake to figure out how much Mr. Fuzzy Muzzle weighs.

How the Horse Weight Calculator Works
When you download the app, it gives you simple directions about how to measure your horse in order to use the calculator. You measure from the point of the shoulder back around to the point of the buttock and around the girth starting at the withers and wrapping the tape around. Then all that you need to do is enter the “length” measurement and the “girth” measurement and hit “estimate.”

The app is extremely simple and gives you the option of entering the measurements in either inches and getting results in pounds or entering the measurements in centimeters and getting the weight in kilograms.

Review
For what it is, the Horse Weight Calculator app is handy. It's doesn't take up much space and as if you forget how to find the measurements, you just have to scroll sideways to get the instructions. The only downside that I can see is that you don't really need it at the barn if you have a weight tape because the app requires extra measuring. If you're at a show, however, and all that you have is a measuring tape when your horse needs medication, the Horse Weight Calculator would come in handy. It ran perfectly on my Nexus S. All in all, a good app that functions well and is easy to use.
