Your Horse (UK) - - Horse Care -

l1 Stand to the side of your horse. You need to be nice and close to him, so that if he ob­jects and kicks out, you’re less likely to get hurt.

l2 Grease the end of your ther­mome­ter with a slick of Vase­line, lift his tail and gen­tly insert it into his rec­tum. Make sure you’re hold­ing the ther­mome­ter against the in­side wall, other­wise you could just be tak­ing the tem­per­a­ture of his dung.

l3 Hold the ther­mome­ter in this po­si­tion for 30 sec­onds. Most dig­i­tal ther­mome­ters will beep once a tem­per­a­ture is recorded.

l4 Re­move the ther­mome­ter, read and record the tem­per­a­ture.
