Readers shared their favorite horse keeping tools.
Thank you for all the responses!
Connie Sargent-Jewell:Bale twine cutter. It doesn't walk away like knives do.Hallie Doud:Right now I think it has to be a shedding brush....lol Allison Mesa: Not "tools" per se, Dover Saddlery's Rider's International Warmblood sheet. It's the only one out there that seems to fit my extra-large quarter horse and for a reasonable price! Other ones: TriCare Wound Ointment by Farnam, Smartpak's supplement program, Blanket Express, and I'll let you know of others cuz' some have slipped my mind! I really like my haytote. Check out, I believe it's, www.haytote.com. Andi Robinson Houlden: My favorite is the Oster mane & tail brush.My bro gave me one for my birthday several years ago and I love it;works great and is easy on my wrist. Valarie Richey: I LOVE my equine sprayer! Couldn't live without it :) Brigitte MacKenzie: My favorite is a metal pronged pitchfork. I don't know what brand but the one we use is awesome!! Shelly DeBoer: For my horses it is the hay boxes, the farm would be hard to manage without them you can look on the web sight to see what I mean faithequestriancenter.webs.com, and for me it has to be my spider knife,or muck boots. Sharmaine McIntyre: My favorite grooming tool are those little black oval rubber curry combs/brush...amazing for shine, deep dirt, shedding.
Allison Mesa:Yes, Shelly, I agree! I have a corner feeder with two grain bins on the side and the hay area in the center. Keeps the horse from eating directly off the ground! http://www.noblepanels.com/corner-feeders.htm Allison Mesa: Baling twine! Just braided two new handles for the water bucket!Lynn Copeland: My favorite tool is my hands. My horse has some pain issues with her back and neck from long overdue muscle training from her past. She also has a club foot which causes pain. So I give her massages with my hands and we both love our time we spend together. I love to see Callie turn her head in such relief that she looks like she is going to fall over. She just loves the massages, and I love the time we spend together. We have such a special relationship because of the massages. Just as we love the touch of another human, so does my horse Callie. So my favorite tool is my hands, and the massages I give to Callie. The bonding is very special, and the pain relief she gets makes for a good ride after she is feeling better.
