    [RC] log books - oddfarm

    I would love to have a log book/journal for all my rides and horses. I am not that old, but the older I get, the better I was! Or so I'd like to think.
    When I started my mare a few years ago, all was going well, until I started pushing for a tad more. Not top ten, or even top half. But she pulled up lame, twice. I couldn't for the life of me, figure what the problem was. Then one day when I was cleaning her stall, I noticed the faint scare and I remembered when she had cut a tendon on the same leg she fell lame on. The vet cut it again, before he sutured it, and said it would never be a problem. I guess he was wrong.
    BUT, if I had a log book at the time this happened, I could have written that down. A log book would help riders both new and experienced to see more clearly,  all the nutrition, training, shoeing, health problems and injuries that could give beneficial information when things go wrong.
    I would even pay extra for a log book when I renewed. I keep a log of our training miles now, but it is in my running log book and I would rather have a horsey log book. :)
