My dad's a mechanic and a pack rat, so there's an old shell of a truck that I keep my tack in. You'd think there'd be mice in there, but so far none of my stuff has been eaten. For whatever reason, the rats are never at his horses' harness (collars or lines or whatever). It's a little annoying, lol.

That is one advantage of neatsfoot oil. It discourages rodents from feasting on your leather goods.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'll have to get more pictures as it progresses, but I started this a few weeks ago, and only can progress as I have friends that can help...this was all made out of free wood that I got from tearing down an old building. Only thing bought so far was nails and beer

Iv no pictures but ill describe it!
K I have 3 single stables for my hard keepers there all stone with rubber matting and straw bedding.
Each has a sliding door with an open side that lets the horses talk. I have swing feeders which makes everything handy and automatic drinkers. Each also has a salt lick holders.
My tack room is attached to my stables with hanging saddke racks and bridle hooks for each horse so nothing bites them then I have nails for head collars lead ropes and lunging equitment. All my rugs are hung on hooks so outdoor rugs,stable rugs and riding rugs.
I then havce shelves for boots bandages and wraps. I then have two large boxes for vetinary and grooming and tack cleaning.

#also my dog sleeps in the tack room so no rodents in there.
All my hay, straw etc are stored in a shed just off the stables and feed is there to. My muck heap is situated near the vegetable garden so it can be used for compost.

MY pony run in centre is three large cow calving bays knocked together and bedded with straw there all allowed in there and the doors are opened all day to the arena where two large round bales are kept so they can graze

To give a horse your heart guarantees a love that will last forever undamageable
