Knowing a horses weight is important.
We measure our horses at least once a year.
How much weight a horse can carry is based upon it's own weight.
Tracking weight also tells us if the horse is being fed too much or too
To calculate how much a horse weighs we have to first measure the horse.
We measure around the chest in inches.
Then we measure from "point of shoulder" to "point of
rear end" in inches.
Once we have the measurements we use the
weight formula: (Around x Around x Length)/330.
So, if baby Cinnamon is 39 inches around and
35 inches long. Then she weighs around 161 pounds.
( 39 x 39 x 35 = 53235 / 330 = 161 )
Not bad for a one month old baby.
