A few weeks ago, Linda at the 7msn Ranch did a post about her horses' record keeping. She called it "obsessively compulsive," however, I call it "wonderfully inspiring." I was very impressed with her organization! Here is how I keep records of my horse keeping:
Yep, they are in a folder, or a "pee chee," if you will. My aunt gave all of us pony cousins a horse folder at one of our family gatherings last year.
Mine is filling up fast with receipts from horse product and tack purchases, random horse stuff like articles my mom has sent me, or pictures I'd printed from All Breed Pedigree of My Boy's grand sire, Dreamfinder.
Here is how I track it all. By writing it down in my chicken scrawl on a little notepad of horsey stationary.
Everything gets written down and dated...hay and supplement purchases.....all of my worming and shoeing and vet appointments. It is especially interesting to see how the hay prices fluctuate over the course of a season.
I have a long way to go in being truly organized and tracking all of my horse's vet care, feed, and tack expenses. At least I have something to refer back to should I have a question.
My dream is to become more organized. There was a time where I actually had organization in my life. Then I began riding horses and blogging. I can organize my blog rather well, that seems to be easy for me. Not quite sure what happened to the rest of my life!
