Weightapes are an invaluable way of keeping track of your horse/pony's weight.

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 he should be at Conditon Score 2½ to 3.

(Click here to see pictures of the various Condition Scores).

This means that you cannot see the ribs but should be able to feel them easily when you run your hand along his side. There should be no fat depots along the crest, loins, tailhead or around the udder or sheath. Such deposits are an early sign that your animal is developing insulin resistance and becoming at high risk of developing laminitis.
