About Lion Edge Technologies
Lion Edge is a family-run business established in August of 1999. The livestock management software was created, developed and produced in-house including all the packaging and website. Ranch Manager: Cattle Software was first created to manage the family’s ranch operation. Soon after creating the Cattle software, customers requested ranch management software such as Sheep software, Goat Software, Equine Software, Deer Software and Elk Software. Lion Edge introduces new features and products based on customer needs. Customers and products have grown to include the Canine Edition (Dog Software for purebred dogs and livestock guardian dogs), the Camelid Edition for Alpaca and llama producers and the Pocket Edition, mobile livestock software for handheld devices.
Ranch Manager: Equine Edition Software
Use Ranch Manager: Equine software, to manage your equine records (horse/donkey) for your ranch operation. With Ranch Manager viewing your horses could never be easier. Separated into major categories such as Foal Crop, Herd Mares, Herd Stallions, Herd Geldings, Animal Sales, Animal Search, and Unmanaged Animals, each view gives the opportunity to view the animals in a list with various characteristics displayed, or use the pedigree and offspring views to discover an animal’s family tree.
Ranch Manager will track the expected foaling due dates for your horses, whether you pasture breed, AI, or use Embryos. The equine program tracks estimated beginning and ending dates for each mare's foaling season based on the days the animal was exposed to one or more stallions in the same location. Estimated due dates are calculated when the breeding date is recorded (such as with AI and Embryos). When a mare births, Ranch Manager calculates the expected sire based on breeding information provided.

Ranch Manager Software for your desktop is available in Windows and Macintosh platforms, including Windows 7, Vista, XP and Mac OS X.
Whether on the go, in the pasture, or at a show, the Pocket Edition Software for handheld devices syncs with the Ranch Manager Equine Desktop Edition. The Pocket Edition makes working and viewing equine records easier and more productive. The Pocket Edition runs on both Windows Mobile and Palm handheld devices. You select and provide the handheld (refer to system requirements), Lion Edge provides the software. Ranch Manager Software is where you need it, when you need it.

What Do Customers Say About Ranch Manager Products?
I had bought your Equine edition at the end of last week for both the PC and the PDA and I have been impressed with the software. It took me a lot of the weekend to get my data on there (and I still have some left to go), but I did have one question with regard to the PDA software. I do realize that it is a companion software and not a standalone one, but I didn't think it would hurt to ask. The only thing that I wished the PDA software had was the Income/Expense module as I know I would be using that quite a bit when I'm at the horse shows. Is that possible for a future update? Thanks for the help, keep up with the great software.
Thanks for the great service. I am really enjoying the software and look forward to getting all my ranch data moved over. The added note areas throughout the software is also a great idea. Thanks again.
