I recently made a trip to the dollar store and found a few cute items :)


I'm going to clip one to Ransom's halter and one to his leadrope :)

I'm going to be using these for bathtime :)

Mane and tail brush for a dollar! Wahoo!

Babywipes are a must for me! I can never have enough at the barn.

Some things that can also be found at the dollar store~
Rubber hair ties for braiding
Vaseline
Shampoo and Conditioner
Sponges
Combs
Feathers and beads for creative braiding projects :)
Jewels and sparkles for blinging out thaaangs :)
Pretty much anything for bathtime! (buckets, towels, etc.)

My first aid kit, Epsom salts, alcohol, syringes, bandages, gauze, sport tape, sanitary napkins (I use them for my dog who cuts open his paws all the time tape one on stick in a boot and off he goes), soap and Vaseline and diaper rash cream.

Baby oil, conditioner, baby powder, baby shampoo, hair brushes, combs, leather wipes, glycerin soap, hooks (for hanging stuff), feed scoops, and baby wipes. To name a few.

Oh forgot Spice's favorite thing a big bag of white peppermints.

My favorite bargain is car wax terry-sponge applicators, 2 for $1 at the local dollar store. They're about $5 for 2 at the tack store. I use them for cleaning tack and -- wait for it, wait for it -- applying fly spray on the face, around eyes and on ears of my horses!

Wig combs are terrific for manes because of the huge teeth.

One can either start with a wig comb and leave it go at that, or work their way down to a finer comb.

I buy a lot of my topical medicines, for the horses, at WalMart or whatever drug store I happen to be in. They are much cheaper than something with "equine" or "horse" on it and most of the time work just as well.

The best thing I've ever gotten at a non horsey store was one of those pumice blocks you use for removing bot eggs. Two bucks! Woohoo. It was really a grill stone, but hey! Works much better than the one from the tack shop and MUCH less expensive. All my friends at the barn keep wanting to borrow it in bot season. Haha!

They are also great for the shedding horse.

Oil Sheen keeps tails conditioned and shiny, you can find it at most grocery stores/drug stores/wal-mart.
