Our Story – how it all began

Some years ago we, Johanna & Janne, ended-up buying a horse – beautiful 5 year old gelding from Germany.  The Horse had two owners, groom, trainer(s), stablemanager(s), farrier, vet, chiropractor, massage therapist… You name it – we got it AND we had a paper diary, passport, notebooks, clip books, pics in cloud services, sms’s and whatsup’s to stablemanager, trainer, pics from the vet to the farrier, emails and again sms’s and whatsup’s to and from other stakeholders. We kept medical,  training and competition records in notebooks and files. All horse related information and data was cluttered and scattered to different places and minds and we all had different recollections of what and what not.

IT MADE NO SENSE.

Turning point came when the Horse had leg issues, to be more precise hoof issues. Our Vet took x-rays of the hooves, we took pics from the screen and forwarded them to our Farrier, Jaakko, so that he could shoe the Horse properly. We did this a few times and in the Spring 2017 Janne thought:

THERE MUST BE A MORE SENSIBLE WAY TO DO THIS.

And he started programming as hobby and collaborating with Jaakko and the very first idea of an application came: EquiFarrier.  The first version of EquiFarrier communicated online, notes and pics were transferred between Johanna, Janne & Jaakko using cloud. However, the network in our stable was pretty bad and a better approach was needed. That led us to the conclusion that offline first approach is mandatory.  

Janne talked with his friend Kari, a software/product management professional, about the problem and a solution began to come to light. Moreover,  after discussions with several stakeholders in the equine industry, it was obvious that more holistic application was needed for horse data management.

AND THEN IT ALL MADE SENSE.

Kaukalo Solutions Ltd. was founded Nov. 2017 – Kaukalo is a Finnish word for trough and describes perfectly what is done: vast amounts of information is centralized in to the cloud and the horse owner may systematically manage his herd of horses and other stakeholders data related to the horse.

About the Horse in the beginning of the story – he is still with us and is well. He can be seen here on our web-site as well as in our logo.
