I need help---on everything

My horses have been borded full care for the past... well as long as ive had horses. They have been in full care, everything provided , first aid, feed... We are just about to finish our barn and I was wondering what all I needed.

I relised that i need a lot more than i thought. I do the hunter/jumper show circut if that helps.

If anyone would share what they use and for what that would be great. Even brands.

I know I need these anything else? and what brands do you like best?

Fura zone or something to put on cuts,
Wonder dust
thrush buster
vet wrap
duct tape
iodine soap

Thanks so so much in advance, this will be such a big help!

P.S. If anyone kows the cheapest place that would help too.

Are you just looking for those specific items, or more to go in a vet kit? I'm not exactly clear on what you're looking for.

Here are the brands that I personally recommend for your list:

Poultice - Uptite Poultice
Fura zone or something to put on cuts - Furazone is good, but something like SWAT is good as well.
Wonder dust - there is a brand called Wonder Dust
corona - Again, there's a brand called Corona
thrush buster - There is some great stuff by Gold Nugget called "Thrush Buster"
vet wrap - Pretty standard, you could just go to your local tack shop and see what they offer. My tack store offers "Grif-Rap."
duct tape - Pretty standard..
iodine soap - Betadine Scrub and Solution are good.

I really hate corona and fura. They are very stinky and didn't work that great on my horses. I usually buy horseman dream vet ointment in TSC or other stores around (http://www.horsemansdream.com). It's on more expensive side than corona, but I found it much better.
