Seringes, tips or caps, may be from meds, vaccines, wormer, irrigating or cleaning a wound, but whatever the reason, i always regret having them if one falls out in public.

Hay, running low on hay, I swear there is a bale or two hidden in my jacket, i'm always finding pieces

Twine

Treats

Screws, lots of screws from barn projects, can't find screws for a project, everyone knows to search my barn jackets

Rubber gloves

Spare snap clips

All the time, a pocket knife. Otherwise, you'll find an assortment at different times; baling twine, hay (of course), treats, rubber gloves, syringes, light winter gloves, screwdriver...

I don't have a barn jacket, but several sets of coveralls I always wear when with the horses. In one pocket is always animal crackers(treats for horses, chickens,& bunny), one pocket has dog biscuts to shut up the neighbors dogs, another pocket has my cigs & lighter, and in the winter other pockets have a small spray bottle of alcohol to unfreeze latches and gloves. Most everything else I would need is handy in the stalls already.

Kleenex in one, but hay in all.... I ALWAYS have bits of hay and alfalfa in my pockets!

Occasionally tooth caps I find, sometimes a pretty rock. My pocket knife is always in my jeans pocket. Sometimes syinge caps and dewormer caps.

Tooth caps, ahh, yes, that is always an odd one to explain, isn't it?! LOL

Besides my pockets being unintentionally full of hay I carry mini cubes for treats. I also have my car keys so I can hit the emergency button to make the horn go off just in case I get injured or become a criminal's target while my husband is inside the house.

Hay, hay and more hay..... I obviously need to start carting some baling twine with me so I can bundle all the HAY that's in my pockets. Bet I'd have a full bale by weeks end. LOL
