Re: Pulses


 

Hi, Laurie - you are not alone!  In fact, digital pulses on a horse should be hard to find.  Here is a good explanation:  http://www.ironfreehoof.com/equine-digital-pulses.html    

 If you want to monitor pulse rate, you can also use the maxillary artery, under the jaw (I like this one, because I don't have to bend over :) ).  https://equimed.com/health-centers/first-aid/articles/four-ways-to-take-your-horses-pulse  ; or you can count heartbeats using a stethoscope.
