Those big soft eyes; whether they’re brown or even blue, we all love to stare into them. However, being so large has its disadvantages, as our horses’ eyes can be prone to injury.
If you are concerned that your horse is not feeling their normal self or is ‘under the weather’ then it can be a good idea to check their TPR (temperature, pulse, respiration) as a helpful indicator to the source of the problem, it can be very helpful to the vet if you can give these extra details when you speak them about your horse.
What to do when your horse is injured
If you own a horse for long enough, sooner or later you are likely to have to deal with an emergency. No matter what the problem, it is helpful to be well prepared and essential to stay calm. Keep your vets number on your mobile phone and also in the tack room along with a well- stocked first aid kit.
