To add more to what I have in mine..
Baby Wipes/Wipey Dipes they are kinda self explanatory :)
Mineral Oil to mix up your own Enema if you prefer it over saline child's enemas. Some people swear by saline and would never use mineral oil and vice versa.
Emergency Call List posted in the Barn... God forbid your "portable device" fails which contains all your numbers or... their is an emergency while you are not their.

You can use fishing line,string,heavy thread,shoe strings,baler twine,any number of things for tying off the cord, (make sure it's clean/sterile) just depends on preference,availability,ect. :)
I haven't been able to find a stethoscope that's affordable yet,but I did pick up a turkey baster at the dollar store the other day!
I'm slowly but surely getting my foaling kit together,well in advance too! Naw,I'm not that excited..LOL

Mmm,wipes would probably be even better for cleaning up than paper towels,I'll have to add them.
Have a big bottle of mineral oil that we have on hand for the sheep,so good to know that can be used if the saline doesn't do the job. :)
And good point on the numbers;I have all mine written in my foaling book that is in my foal kit,but having readily available for others to see is a good idea!

I have Suture material instead of fishing line :) but the options are endless like you said!
I found a stethoscope at Walmart for $14.88. I just checked their website, and they have them for sale online too! It says shipping is only 97 cents. My local Walmart will do free shipping to the store where you can go pick it up at customer service!
