Weighing your Mini Without a Scale

Here's how to determine your horse's weight using an ordinary tape measure.

Since many medications must be administered based on weight, it is important to determine your horse's weight accurately to avoid the complications of over or under-dosing. This weight table was designed by veterinarians who recognized this problem. To use the table, take a standard tape measure and measure your horse's girth. Then use the table to determine his/her weight.
