How ya'll fit all your tack into one tiny little tack cubby amazes me. Between my Dad and I (I keep my horses at his house), we have one tack room that is 12 feet x 12 feet and an additional harness room of the same size; both are stuffed full. LOL. Let me see if I can name some of the stuff we have.
12 equine animals total
4 retired: (one mini burro, one draft mule, one TB, and one QH)
6 rideable: (2 mustangs, 3 QHs, and 1 Perch)
1 driveable only: (Bessie)
Now for our stuff
8 western saddles (7 roping, 1 show)
1 english saddle
15-ish cinches of different sizes from 26" to 38"
6-ish flank cinches of different sizes
12-15 saddle pads/blankets (western and a couple english)
40-ish bits (both snaffle and curb)
1 bosal hackamore
25-ish halters and leads
3 roping tie-downs
10 lariat ropes
6 breast collars
3 sets of mecate reins (1 horsehair and 2 nylon braid)
3 extra sets of split reins in 8' length, vary between 1/2 and 3/4 inch width
3 handheld hole punches
6 sets of harness (each set for a team of 2) varying in size from mini-burro to large draft
4 full sets of sports medicine boots (front, back, and bell included in each set)
2 sets of splint boots
1 set of skid boots
various brushes, curry combs, hair brushes (human used on mane and tail), and other grooming items
1 large bottle of bute tablets
1 bottle of banamine
1 bottle of penicillin
1 bottle of antifungal shampoo
1 jar of Bickmore gall salve (must-have for all galls)
various other vaccines and medications
various sizes of needles and syringes
1 large bottle of Neatsfoot oil
3 sets of hoof nippers (all different styles)
2 shoeing hammers
1 nail crimper
countless horseshoes ranging in size from 000 to 2 in standard horse and several draft sizes
1 set of aluminum TB racing shoes (from many years ago)
countless snaps, spare leather, saddle strings, extra reins, lengths of chain and harness leather used for various reasons, coils and rolls of spare rope and twine, and basically anything else that might someday possibly have a use. LOL.
I know I have forgotten tons of things but......
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
