First aid kit & Information

I am making a first aid kit for my horse and myself. I have all of my supplies but am wondering, what information should I include in my kit along with my supplies. This is what I have decided to include so far:

-Vet contact
-Farrier contact
-Emergency contacts for myself
-List of regular vital signs for my horse + guideline vital signs
-Info on how to treat/stabilize horse until vet/farrier arrives for colic, wounds, choke, excessive bleeding/hemorrhage, eye problems, & laminitis

Also, this is what is in my kit so far

-Duct tape
-Vet-rap/self adhesive bandage
-Gauze pads
-Adhesive pads
-Latex gloves
-Table salt
-Instant ice pack
-Epsom salt
-Hand sanitizer
-Disposable towels/cloths
-Bandages(for myself)
-Antiseptic wipes
-Antibiotic ointment

Anything else I should include? I put it all in a sturdy container and everything is clearly labeled with the name of the product and my name + my horse's name

I know I should probably include
-Thermometer (Know of any good cheap ones?)
-Extra Dewormer?

LOL Sorry for the book
