High-Tech Horsemanship…in Your Horse’s Shoes

horse shoe farrierCan your horse’s shoes help him talk? That’s the question Horse Sense Shoes is asking as the company prepares to launch a new health monitoring system for horses, and we think it’s pretty cool!

The system is comprised of a sensor that fits onto a horse’s shoe to detect whether he is standing or lying down, and combines with another sensor placed near the tail, which monitors respiration and temperature. The system beams the information to your iPhone or computer, and it’s thought that the combination of vitals and standing status can help an owner or manager detect illness even when they’re not within sight of the horse.

What do you think of a high-tech system like this one?
