It should be kept in mind that when you take the temperature of horse you should use a large animal rectal thermometer. These thermometers are specially made and are extra thick; they are unlikely to break if they fall. To avoid it from breaking, the thermometers come with a small ring attached on the top. All you have to do is attach an alligator clip and with it some nylon or fishing string to the ring. Now all you have to do is attach the thermometer to the horse's tail with the help of the clip this will make it easier for you to take the temperature.

The ideal temperature for a horse is 99.5 to 101.4 degrees. Foals and yearlings have slightly higher temperature, especially when they are anxious or scared.
