This charming story was inside my mailbox today…  I had to share it because I just adore little kids who fight to let their talent shine through – against the bigguns!

Chayni Chamberlain is a 9 year-old girl who is in FIRST position against the big girls going into this Sunday’s barrel racing championship at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

And… she rides her 14 year-old quarter horse who has been in the family from her Grandmother, Mother and now little Chayni.   The whole family honors and totally trusts ‘Flo Joe’.

Here is a video of their story plus her winning run that put her into 1st place going into this weekend!

In her interview, she was sweet and humble.

 

I love this one of Chayni kissing her horse in front of her very proud parents!

A GREAT APP COMING TO USE YOUR PHONE WITH THERMAL IMAGING! Have you heard of The iNFRAHORSE APP? COMING SOON!

I saw a blurb on investing in this infrahorse device – and if i had the money, I would have.

I think the idea is terrific.

Basically, with the infrahorse app and camera – that fits onto your smart phone – you can take a thermal image using your phone and then send it to your vet (or Thermography specialist) immediately for analysis.

Here is what the FB page says:  infraHorse is a revolutionary, new and affordable app and tiny thermal camera-for DYI equine thermal imaging right from your phone!

How wonderful is that?!  When this hits the open market, imagine the relief to an owner when they can take a photo as soon as the injury or suspected injury has occurred and send it to a technician immediately.

Or, if you are trying saddles, take a pic and send it off while you try the next saddle!

APP AND CAMERA

Right now, they are putting the finishing touched on the app and smart phone thermal camera.  It is expected to be available in Spring, which is right around the corner.

I read that the camera will sell for $299 and the App will be a free download.

So, once you have purchased the camera, download the App, Attach the camera to your Smartphone and you are ready!

I know $299 may seem like a lot of money… but for a person like me who has a chronically foundered horse, if I had this app and camera, I could see what was going on daily.  Very interesting and very economical.  Vet visits, Xrays and ultrasounds and MRIs are ALL more expensive than this App and Camera!

TECHNICIANS STANDING BY

I also read that you could send these images to your vet (if they are versed in thermography) or you could send it to specialists online (via the website) for a quick reply.

To me, this is so much quicker and easier!  (This shouldn’t take the place of a vet when a vet is needed.)

What a great idea coming our way!

These are interesting notes about images taken by an owner with the app and camera

Useful for saddle fit as well.

LESS EXPENSIVE THAN AN MRI!

This device is certainly less expensive than extensive ultrasounds or an MRI! And you could send these images to specialists around the nation to confer.

Interesting data on this snippet I cut from the FB page:
