I am not sure whether a lot of horse owners do this or not, but I personally find it extremely helpful to keep a folder dedicated to Tofino.
The folder has a number of separators where I keep the following:
- Tofino’s passport
- Tofino’s journal
- Bills (livery/boarding, vet, farrier, vaccinations, etc.)
- A pen (always handy to fill in your journal)
I use a classic composition journal to fill in the following details:
- Farrier dates
- Deworming dates
- Dentist dates
- Vaccination dates
- Lesson dates (i don’t do this anymore)
What you can also do, is get one of those 4-5 Subject notebooks and place each category within the dividers. I like to see everything at once, but that is always a second option if you like.
I would also suggest to place reminders on your phone for repetitive dates. For example, I have Tofino’s Teeth to be checked set every 8 months. Normal dentist visits should be every 6 months, but since he is 14, he is alright with every 8 months.
You can also note down lessons, vaccination, farrier visits and deworming too in your phone calendar to remember.
I hope this helps you keep track of your horses health. It makes it so much easier when you have everything written down instead of trying to remember.
