Can't leave out the milk pump made from a syringe. Cut off end of syringe [pointed end] pull plunger fom its original placement and insert into cut off end. When using, place the open end up against nipple and pull out plunger slowly. Presto you "have milk"...so much faster to milk a mare this way then just with your fingers. Mary
Several empty water or soda bottles with the bottoms cut out and cut edge covered with tape in various sizes to keep in foaling kit for use as emergency foal respirators (slip open end over muzzle snugly and breathe in neck end). Another water bottle with spout-type lid in vet supply box to use for flushing wounds.
I don't have the bottle in front of me as it is up at the barn. But there is this product for cats/dogs called LymeDip (comes in a concentrate probably pint that makes 4 gallons) my vet (equine only) carries it so has no harm on the horses and if you have any sort of fungus at all on your horses it will cut it in no time...........only thing is it is Very sulfur based and stinks to high heavens, the time I used it I I put sprayed it on and then rubbed it in with those Thick dishwashing gloves that they use in kitchens.
Dog mat cobs (the type with hooky razor bladed tines) for removing those huge grooming tangles in manes or for thinning/removing burrs.
Original Pine-Sol for rainrot. Dilute it JUST enough to turn it white, put it in a spray bottle and soak the scabs/hair around them only. They will dry and fall off within a week or so...my VET told me this and we have used it for years, no clipping, no baths.
Medicated foot powder for minor wounds & scraps. After cleaning the wound, dust the powder on heavily to absorb liquid and prevent flies/debris from entering the wound while wet.
Mix (only enough for 1 use) equal parts warm water, peroxide and betadine solution (scrub) to use to flush out minor wounds (using a syringe with no needle) or hoof abcesses. DO NOT CAP THE SYRINGE, it will explode...usually in your face
Instead of saline or mineral oil based enemas, which can actually add dangerous levels or rapidly deplete vital liquids/minerals, use a CLEAN emptied child's enema bottle filled with warm water and add a drop or two of LIQUID Ivory soap as a foal enema.
Groomer's Edge/Double K clippers fit well in the round top metal toolboxes.
Add a little water to your feed bucket and stir, esp when you are feeding multiple horses together. Supplements stick to the feed, keeps vitamins/minerals from settling to the bottom and all going to one horse.
