The Comprehensive Horse Care Manager
How much does my horse weigh? When is her next farrier appointment? When was her last Coggins test? Horse Keeper is designed to make your horse keeping chores manageable and fun. If you own horses, you know how challenging it can be to keep track of all of your horses' needs.
Keeping track of the many care details for each of your horses is what Horse Keeper is all about. Here is just a sampling of the tracking utility Horse Keeper provides:
Create a fully descriptive entry for each of your horses, including picture, health history, parentage, breed, height, weight, and many other details. The health history page lets you enter professional services such as Vaccination, Farrier, Vital Statistics and Dentist appointments, and will even remind you when the next service is due.
Keep track of Veterinarians, Farriers, Dentists, Trainers, etc. The Contacts tab is fully integrated with the built-in Contacts and Mail applications. Pull up your Farrier entry for example, and a phone call or email is just a couple of touches away.
Whenever a service is due, Horse Keeper will "whinny" at you, even if it is not open, and will present a message as to what service needs to be performed. In addition, you can enter reminders of your own taking full advantage of Apple's push notification services. Don't forget to fix that fence!
When you weigh your horse (weight calculator included!) you can enter dietary notes for each weight entry. The weight entries are then sorted in chronological order so you can track weight changes over time. In addition to dietary notes, There is a Notes tab where you can enter your barn notes. I really need to fix that tractor one of these days. And of course, there is a place to enter notes about each individual horse.
You can backup your Horse Keeper data or share it with other Horse Keeper users. To export, simply hit the Backup button on the Horses tab, and select the recipient's email address. To Import, press and hold the attachment on the received email, and select the "Open in Horse Keeper" button that appears. Then select those items you wish to add or replace.
Synchronize your Horse Keeper data with other users over WiFi. This helps to make Horse Keeping a family endeavor. Just select Synchronize from the More Tab, and select another device which is currently running Horse Keeper. Once the other user grants permission, Horse Keeper will download their data and allow you merge it with your own entries. It's just that simple.
There's too much more to list. All of your info is presented in a logical, tabbed interface. Take a look at the screenshots or visit www.dancethetide.com for more info.

Ratings and Reviews
Great concept but very buggy
I really want to like this app, but the main problem might be its outdatedness. Certain things are always disappearing, like the sire name, height, or nature, among various others. On the owned, lease, borrowed, sold section, the names I put in also keep disappearing. I really like the gist of this app, and I feel like it does it well. I love the interface of all of the medicines and shots that are already loaded in along with the time intervals. I also love the reminding features, I feel that was done really well. Overall, it’s much better than the past apps I have used, and I want to like it. But it’s just really outdated and full of bugs.
An Excellent Useful Application for Any Equine Keeper
Horse Keeper is an excellent tool for keeping track of and managing virtually all aspects of an equines ownership, health, and competition information and the reminders feature ensures important items relating to such isn't overlooked.
Thank you sooooooooo much for finally updating this app so it will run on the newer iOS version - I was lost without it!! Best horse app around!!
