We love our horses

. . .but they get sick and hurt so easily.

Horses Get Sick or Hurt all the Time

Some of our horses seem to colic if the weather changes slightly. Other horses seem to get cut even when we can’t find anything in their field that is sharp. Older horses choke. Horses get cast in their stalls. Foals are born in the middle of the night to mares who always seem to need help. The list goes on and on. 

Video cameras can help a little, but we need to stay awake to watch them on the camera for signs of trouble. 

We can’t be with our beloved animals 24/7, and we worry about them. 

Sometimes that worry is warranted, as many horse owners have lost money on costly veterinary bills for preventable illnesses and injuries. And if you own horses long enough, you will eventually lose one that you love when they can’t be saved.

A horse is a huge investment both financially and in the time that you invest in your partnership. We put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into these horses and equestrian sports.

Early intervention saves lives

. . .but I can’t always be there.

Detecting subtle changes in behavior ...

Horse owners want peace of mind and to watch over our horses even when we can’t be with them. We want to know:

  • What is my horse’s normal level of activity at each time of day?
  • Has his activity level changed recently?
  • Is he laying down more than usual?
  • Is he in the stable or the paddock? Did he get turned out today? 
  • Did my horse get loose?
  • How is my horse while we’re at a show?
  • Is his temperature at his normal baseline?
  • Does he have enough water? 
  • Does he have fair access to shared resources like hay, water, minerals and shelter when turned out in a group? 

Knowing everything that is normal for your horse, and catching very subtle changes is the key to early intervention. It is these early changes in management and check ins with your veterinarian that can save you money and maybe even save your horse in serious situations. 

But it’s very hard to know all of these things about your horse 24/7, when you can’t be with him all the time. Most of us have day jobs to pay the horse bills and/or have a family to care for, and we all need to sleep.

Farm Jenny works everywhere

We all want our horses to lead a natural healthy life, which usually means more turn-out. But it’s even harder to keep tabs on your horse when he is turned out to pasture. It’s impossible to know all of these details about your horse’s behaviors and health when he is turned out. 

That’s why Farm Jenny is designed to work anywhere on your farm, even when your horse is turned out in his favorite field and you can’t see him from the barn.  

We know that most farms don’t have Wi-Fi, especially in their fields. Farm Jenny doesn’t rely on Wi-Fi to get the data from your horse. 

Our solar powered Field Receivers create a wireless mesh network around the perimeter of your farm. As long as your horse is near any one of these receivers, the system will get the data from your horse and you’ll get real-time information in the Farm Jenny app on your phone. 

And when your horse is on the road, any smart phone with the Farm Jenny app can act as a receiver to gather and send the data to your phone.

You can check up on your horse from the office, at home or while on vacation. 

Check on your horse no matter where he is from anywhere!

Can Farm Jenny detect colic?

We are often asked if Farm Jenny can detect colic? The simple answer is no, we can’t currently detect and alert you to active colic. But we can give you insights into subtle behavioral changes that may be early warning signs before colic strikes. Our goal is to get you the most information possible in the palm of your hand to help you manage your horse in the best way possible. For example, if Farm Jenny detects that your horse is drinking less, you may want to make simple management changes to increase water intake which could prevent an impaction colic. This scenario is rather common with some horses, especially in the winter months when they’re eating more hay which is very dry compared to grass, and they aren’t very thirsty. We recommend that you use the information provided by Farm Jenny and work with your veterinarian to give your horse the best care possible.

Eventually, we hope to be able to detect or even predict colic, but the technologies for doing that aren’t available to us quite yet.

Farm Jenny has the answers!

Farm Jenny gathers all of this data and more about your horse and serves it up to you in the Farm Jenny App on your smart phone. This allows you to notice very subtle changes in behavior so that you can make management changes to help prevent or address problems early. 

Farm Jenny provides first of its kind visibility into your horse’s behavior, location, and environment.

Detecting a sudden decrease in activity could alert you to a health issue.  Prolonged excessive activity at night could indicate predator problems.

Farm Jenny tracks your horse’s movements, second-by-second and displays the data in a timeline as well as daily, weekly, and monthly trends.  An optional daily email report summarizes the change in activity for the whole herd.

Horses need 5-7 hours of sleep, with at least some of that time spent lying down*.  Farm Jenny allows you to objectively measure sleep time and just restfullness of sleep by observing normal sleep patterns and duration.

In the app, sleep is indicated by an activity level at or near zero, and is represented on the dashboard with a horse lying down icon.  You can zoom and drag the activity timeline to look back at previous days for comparison.

See the current location of every member of the herd on 3D overview map, and on each horse’s detail screen.

In the pastures, location is determined by a process known as triangulation, based on calculated distance to Field Receivers (grey dots in the picture at right) installed on fence lines. When you leave the farm with your horse, its location system uses the GPS in your phone. For more precision in buildings or other points of interest, simply add our Location Beacons (the blue dots in the picture).  The system automatically figures out which location technology to use at any time.

 

Sometimes you want to track your horse’s location on the road too.

Farm Jenny’s sensing and location features don’t only work on your home farm, they also work work whenever a phone running the Farm Jenny app is in range (typically within 50-100 feet).

Just make sure the driver is using the Farm Jenny app and has “Bray Mobile” turned on under the Settings menu for this feature to work.

When you’re at an event, every Farm Jenny user helps relay your horse’s data to the cloud.  

 

Its nice to have one place to keep track of all your horses’ stats, particularly at larger farms.  In addition to uploading a photo and entering key biometrics, you can assign horses to herds and assign colors to use on the dashboard and maps.  Combined with our real-time location, this is a great way to confirm everyone has been turned out in the right pasture.

Keeping track of your horse’s normal temperature and checking it regularly is one of the best ways to detect problems early and stay ahead of contagious diseases like EHV-1.

Farm Jenny makes this process easy with a built-in temperature log.  If you use one of our supported bluetooth thermometers, the process is even easier, the reading is captured automatically by the app as soon as the reading is complete.  You can view and export your temperature journal at any time, for example to sent it to your veterinarian.

See our detailed instructions for tracking temperatures and read more about Farm Jenny’s commitment to stopping EHV-1..

Share your horse’s data with anyone on your team that helps to care for them. All caretakers, farm managers, trainers, veterinarians and farriers can be given access to your data in the Farm Jenny app. You decide. The more that you use it, the more that you’ll realize the benefits of everyone seeing the same information about all of your horses.

And when you have a problem with your horse, you can answer your veterinarian’s questions with objective data about what is normal for your horse and what has changed. This makes it easier for your veterinarian to diagnose and treat your horse.
