    I feel the same way except I don't get anything in return. This stuff happens with my crops all the time too.

    They're all gravitating to my grooming bucket. Hoof picks are multiplying overnight, while the curry comb and flick brush have gone missing. (It's my regular lesson horse, but the BO doesn't know where this stuff has gone/is coming from either.)

    Haha I think JDI has the right idea.

    They grabbed the thermometers and ran away. Two things that I might as well permanently put on my shopping list are Hoof picks and Thermometers.

    It's really embarrassing to tell the Vet that you have no idea what the horse's temperature it because all the thermometers are gone (AGAIN). Although considering that my horse bared his teeth when the Vet went to take his temp (and got himself promptly sedated......), maybe it was a good thing they were all lost and the Vet was the sucker (oops.... professional) trying to take dumbo's temp.

    My brother-in-law's family put together a book of written history from their family, one group had saved shopping lists from a hundred years ago or so, on every single list was a pocket knife.

    From the posts here I am torn between the horses tossing them, or they elope with the socks. After all the dish ran away with the spoon.

    I have only had one hoof pick for the past two years, and surprisingly I have never lost it or misplaced it.

    One thing that I do always lose....bobby pins!

    No doubt the belt would be handy, but I can tell you from personal experience that the folding hoof pick that they have pictured is a real pain in the ass to try to use. There isn't enough room between the end of the hook and the wide part of the handle to get in and dig into the hoof if you need to. At best, you can sort-of scrape things off the top. I always just carry a cheap pocket knife with me and that works just as well as a hoof pick (more versatile too).

    Actually, something like this would be a much better deal.

    Plus, you could get a little knife holder and carry it everywhere on your belt.

    If your hoofpicks run off with your socks, you need to take classes in Natural Hoofpickmanship. The key is to make cleaning a horse's hoof a game that the pick wants to play...

    It is tougher with the socks. Many just have an innate yearning to be free.
