I keep antifungal cream in my tub at all times. When I first bought Kyanne she had really bad rain rot. But when I get my christmas bonus (still haven't gotten it) I'm using it to put together a really good kit. Thankyou to everyone who has chipped in on items and to the creator of this topic. BRILLIANT!!!

I would rather ride my horse than my husband; She's funner and doesn't expect anything in return!

A few other things that might sound off the wall.....

Diaper doublers- come in very handy for those large wounds that you need more then just a guaze square.

Baking soda/water- mixed together you have a paste that will get rid of proud flesh.

MTG- comes in handy for so many things.

Great list!!

I don't think I saw it on anyone's list, but don't forget a good flashlight or other portable light source. You and/or your vet will really appreciate it if/when you have one of those middle-of-the-night emergencies as even most barns are not lit enough to easily do medical examinations/procedures at night. We keep around both a rechargeable battery powered light and a portable halogen work light w/extension cord.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Wow, this thread really took off in the two years or so its been since I posted it, LOL!

Im SO glad this list has been so useful to you guys! Unfortunately, since i took such a long absence, i was put on the Dormant-Moderator list (i lost the internet and had a VERY hard time getting it back out here in the boonies!) so I cannot edit the thread, since i posted it when i was an Active Administrator.

Last year i found out all that stuff about Peroxide as well, when someone recommended i use it to flush my ear. My doctor then told me it would actually really harm my ear and turn the inner ear "spongey" since then i took it out of my vet kit, LOL!

You guys made some AWESOME additions to my list, and I will try to create an updated one with everyone's selections! I need to get with the Administrator more sooner than later, lol!

Again, I am very glad this has helped you guys, and that everyone has had such good input on it!
