Moving and going to finally have my baby at home!

After years of wishing, I am finally going to be moving out to the country and will be able to keep Jack at home! I can't tell you how excited I am to be able to walk out the door and see my boy whenever I want!! He has been boarded 30 min away since he was a baby.
I have a list going of things that I will need on hand at all times, but I know I am missing some things. Feed, hay, water, grooming supplies, all of that is the "easy" part,lol. Would you please tell me what you think I will need on hand so I can double check myself? Thanks a bunch!

How exciting! Congrats!

I keep so much stuff around that I don't even think about it. It's too early to think this hard

Vet kit, thermometer with string, stethoscope, ointments, wound dressings & bandages, bute, banamine, etc...
Fence repair supplies (extra chains & snaps for gates too)
Extra buckets
Pitch forks, rakes, wheelbarrow
Heavy duty garden hose(s)
And always have lots of elbow grease handy

There's a lot more but hopefully someone else who's had their morning coffee will chime in!

Go ahead and set aside a "dumping ground" for manure and such..even if your horse is out at pasture, "horsey patrol" is still needed, you'd be suprised how quick it can build up!

My newerspreader is one of the handiest, helpful items I've got.

My wife looked at me kind of funny when I brought it home, but now she uses it most every day, three seasons per year.

Newer Spreader

I mean, why pile it up when you can spread it?

Ah yes, tractor & manure spreader are wonderful things! I do make a pile through winter though & let it sit and break down. Come spring all of my family, friends & myself have fertilizer for our gardens.

If you have an atv or riding mower find an old box spring, burn the material off and drag it behind your machine. Dirt cheap manure spreader. Then if you have a bagger for your riding mower you can go over this after it's dried a few days and bag it to either compost it or sell it, especially if it's bagged. It's light and easy to handle.

I do the same thing. Pile it up from about November through February, mulch the flowers, trees and bushes, then spread the rest on the pasture, over seed, and drag harrow it lightly.

A manure spreader is something I wish I'd have bought much earlier. We clean the stalls and spread the manure. A couple of times a week we pick up the piles in the pasture and spread them too.

One of the side benefits of spreading is there seems to be far less flies than before when I piled it.
