This isn't really home made, but I use a lot of the small buckets from the Dollar Store. I also got a package of tupperware type containsers from there (2 for a $1) and I keep my small scissors, thermomitor, lube, etc in them to keep them neatly organized and clean. I also use the travle size spray & pump bottles for wound care too. It's so easy to apply alchol to a prep site when it's in a pump bottle, just one pump onto the cotton ball, and there's no "dubble dipping" or contamination hazard.
I also keep some Iodine in a little spray bottle for use in those hard to reach, or sensitive to touch areas. It's come in handy several times! Even on the trails!
I made some draw reins, trailer ties, stall ties & a breast collar keeper all out of one package of rope from walmart, 2 pair of small clips (for the draw reins) and a hand full of carabeaners. All of it cost maybe $20. When I come across a good deal on the quick release clasps, then I want to get some for in the trailer, but what I have in there now works great, and was very cheap.
I even had left over rope that I clip to my youngests breast collar & I make him drag around my garden cart for me! It just cost me 2 more carabeaners!
