My horse is kept at a private barn residence. I have bought a lot of my own consumables, or use and restock what I use. There are a ton of things you take for granted when there is a shelf with scarlet oil, fure-zone, and hoof dressing on it.
My barn owner does a lot of his own vet stuff. He will give shots when a horse is scraped up badly and knows a lot about what meds to give for what ailments.
In the beginning, my plan was to get the hubbie to move us out where I could keep my horse on property. After 6 months of horse ownership, I am convinced there is still much more for me to learn. My vet bills would ROCKET from the unknown if we moved and took the horse with us.
I would recommend that you build a good library of vet type books so you at least know when to call the vet.
You may also want clippers with a #10 and #30 blade.
Extra "household tools" where you keep your horsey stuff (screw driver, pliers, hammer).
Lots of garden hose.
You will also want to build a compost pile for manure that is in a near proximity but away from your everyday living.
If you are in a warm climate and have a barn/tack room, you may want to invest in a small fridge for drinks, but also some meds require chilling.
Outside of this brain dump, I really think the best place to start is where you have the horses. What does the current barn provide in terms of care? Do they worm? Medicate? Grain?
If your horses are currently pasture turnout and nobody pays them any attention or gives them any care, you may require a lot less than these lists.
