Normal parameters and vital signs

Knowing what your horse's normal vital signs are is very important as these can be a very good indicator of how your horse is feeling and if he needs veterinary attention. You should check your horse's vital signs on a regular basis - once a week is ideal as well as when you think your horse might be off colour.
