I keep my horses at home here, and I'm the only one who ever cleans hooves.
I keep the following:
One by the gate of the round pen
One by the hitch rail
One on the cheap and nasty rack of hooks just inside the barn door
Two in my stay at home kit
One in my traveling kit
One in the bucket of stuff I carry down to the mare and foal field twice a day.
Also have them in random barn coat pockets
So why oh why can't I find a hoof pick today???
I know some will turn up tomorrow, I also know that I will be buying more next time I go into town, a regular occurrence.
So where do they all go??
Some friends and I worked out that there is a sock fairy, she comes by and collects random socks, much like the tooth fairy, and instead of leaving money, leaves a barn cat or two. (This has more truth to it than you may think, sock went missing during the week, have new kitten in barn today
Is there a hoof pick fairy, collects hoof picks and leaves you with what I wonder??
