How to manage breeding tasks via Breeding Worksheet

You can view, add and edit all breeding tasks via the Breeding Worksheet, located in the Schedule screen.

Note: Another common name for a Breeding Worksheets is Crush Report. It is particularly useful when examining mares leading up to a cover.

The worksheet defaults to today's date in the top left-hand corner of the screen, and only shows mares with pending breeding tasks on or before the selected date - as per above.

You can optionally:
  1. change the view to display future dates;
  2. only display mares in specific Location(s);
  3. only display mares in specific Barn(s)/Paddock(s);
  4. only display mares in specific Category(ies);
  5. only display breeding tasks related to a specific breeding season;
  6. display all mares and their upcoming breeding tasks, even if those tasks are not pending (due) on or before the selected date.

For each mare displayed, the Stallion Booking with the oldest pending task displays in the 'Booked To' column. This will naturally allow users to 'clean up' (complete or delete) old breeding tasks from prior seasons, if required.

Other information shown includes:
  1. Horse Profile Note beneath the mare name (recorded on main profile page of the Mare) *
  2. Mare’s current Location and Paddock
  3. The Stallion the mare is Booked To (scheduled to be covered by).\
  4. Day(s) since Foaling, PGed, Served or and Ovulated, regardless of the Stallion Booking
  5. Current Status
  6. Last three completed Breeding Tasks and any Upcoming (Pending) Breeding Tasks. Note these are just the breeding tasks, not vet or general (farrier/dentist) procedures.
  7. Comment
* Note: In addition to Horse Notes that can be recorded on specific dates, you can record a more generic Horse Note on the Horse Profile. This Horse Note is not date-specific and may be suitable for general notes such as breeding seasonal notes, horse allergies, horse behavioural vices and safety precautions for staff - among other uses.
