Horseware Products, an Irish-based company, has partnered with Taoglas, an antenna and RF optimization company, to create a horse blanket that has an attachable electronic monitoring device. When connected to the Horsepal app, horse owners and caretakers can monitor a horse's temperature to clue in to their health and comfort levels.
The data is cloud-based, so the information can be accessed from anywhere in the world with Internet access.
The device and accompanying app can help manage multiple horses and stables, track temperature and humidity, offer blanketing advice, and store health documents.
The Horsepal app and device should retail around $500.
