They're browbands used for showing! I'm still in the process of planning my colours :)

Ok, thanks for the clarification. That was my first thought but I have never seen colored browbands like that. I would love to see pix of those on a horse, I bet they are pretty.

Yup, browbands.

I have more than that somewhere, my friend Pat always made them for me, but these were un-finished one's that she gave me to finish off, but I never bothered, hehe.

I'll get some photos of our tack shed. It was suppose to be a temporary spot. We used to keep everything in our front barn (outside the fenced in dog patrolled area) There was a bunch of barn break in so we bought a little rubbermaid shed for everything. I want to finish off one end of our lean-to shed for a tack room. I love iridehorses area. I want ours just like that.

I agree Vida, Iridehorses, tack room is just GREAT!!! I'll have to get a photo of where I keep my bridles and halters, I'm pretty proud of myself for finding a little spot to call my tack room.. Hehehe. I used Tuna cans for holders and an old board I found in the shed. It works like a charm, but I still needed a bit more room.

Tack Room 004.jpg
^^Welcome to my laundry/tack/ everything else room. To your left you can see the little nitch where I have my tack...then the left corner of the room is a sink which is currently holding my chick incubator the right is the washer/dryer and then 2 closets with bifold doors finish the tour.
Tack Room 005.jpg
^^ This is my creation. 5 tuna cans and 4 nails to hold all my stuff.

Tack Room 006.jpg
In this shot you can see where I hang my grooming supply bag and the shelf where I keep the horsey first aid kit (which isn't up there but belongs between the beta-dine and the box that has my scalding pot.)
Tack Room 007.jpg
This is just a shot of the bottom of the bridles & I guess the dog bowl that needs filled and the catbox that *thankfully* the cat hates using. (I'm glad she's an out door business type of cat)

That's my Tack room paired with the saddles in the living room.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

This is my tack shed, the lean-to I want to finish is right next to it, see?
this is the inside, its a mess. We just keep everything we need on the carts and wheel them out to the hitching rail.
I want to enclose the closest gated end of this for a tack barn. I think it would be cool, and its back by the house.
This is where it used to be. Now I just keep halters and lead ropes, my 4 wheeler, feed and of course my chickens in it. I really liked having it our here but didn't want to take the risk of having stuff stolen. It very close to the road and far from the house.
See the girls would be right outside


EDT: hope these photos load now

Thank you!

The tuna can idea is great. I used an old post that was out in the field, cut it into several pieces and used long wood screws to anchor from the back of a piece of 1x4 pine that I had. The old paint on the post gave it a nice rustic look.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
