4-H Logo
Extension horse specialists from Purdue University and the University of Nebraska have developed an app that enables smartphone users to calculate a horse's body condition score and record the score with a photo of the horse. The HorseBCS app will be helpful for any horse owner or other trained equine professional. Law enforcement personnel also will benefit from the app, along with 4-H'ers and their leaders, as they learn the proper technique of caring for a horse.
