What's in your grooming box?

Hi fellow equestrians I just got my horse and am looking forward to receiving my grooming items from Dover. So I wondered, what do you keep in your grooming box?
I will be keeping my stuff in a fortiflex grooming tote. I will have a Dover brand hoof pick with brush and a small curry comb. Also a Winner's Circle horsehair soft brush and beastie brush. Then an Oster man and tail comb. in terms of sprays and creams, I will have Farnam's SWAT and Repel-X fly spray. I will have some rainmaker for moisture, some vetrap in case of emergency. Then some Fura-Zone and Thrush Buster (love that stuff).

What do you carry?

Soft brush, dandy bush, curry comb, rubber curry, sleekaz brushes,hoof pick, hoof oil, comb, mane and tail brush, hair ties.

And if I can fit it splint boots and a fly veil.
I've never realized how much I have in my grooming box it's only a small box.

My grooming box is kind of a hot mess atm. But I keep 2 curry combs, one flat and the other has bigger nubs, 2 dandy brushes, one hairbrush, braiding elastics, 3 combs, 4 hoofpicks (cause I misplace things a lot) a bag of Crunch, a bottle of baby oil, and a bottle of mane n tail detangler. Usually his brushing boots are in there too.

In the beginning I had the basic set of brushes, a curry comb, a Kelly brush, a hair brush, soft and hard brush and some hoof picks.... I think I had some hoof oil and furazone but NOW....

I have a shelf full of stuff, a bag of brushes... a bucket of brushes... a shelf full of gauze and medical supplies.... I have a three drawer system full of stuff.. Then there is the bin in the basement and the bucket of bathing supplies... the show brushes.... etc.

You just wait, that little tote of yours is going to be out of control!!!
