Smile 101 ways to use bailing twine!

I was curious...How do you use your bailing twine? You can post how you use it even if other people post the same thing (: I use it for:
Halters
Leadropes
Collars (for the occasional nawty dog)
Whips (in case someone gets nippy or I need to fend for myself in the field...much easier than carrying normal whips!)
Temporary fixes for things
Fencing line (although they still act like they get shocked by it, lol)
Holding things together
Carrying hay to the horse
Jumprope
Aaannnd that's all I can think of...What do you guys use it for?

It was fun and worked really well, hubby used it most of the summer! Wish I would have had a camera we were pretty proud of ourselves! Lol

Is very handy when you need a belt

Baling twine, duct tape and WD40 is the necessary components of a poor farmer's tool box. 99.9% of stuff can be fixed with these 3 items!

Hanging buckets is its number 1 use here. BUT Its been used to...
Attach cross ties.
Tie dogs.
A belt.
A make shift riding crop.
Attach to the end of the whip during de-sensatizing.
Tie saddle bags onto the back of the saddle.
Tie tarps after rolling them up.
A half-assed attempt as a quick fence on more than one occasion.
Trailer ties in a pinch.
Tieing a gate shut.
Hung a few swings using bailing twine.
Made long lines too.

Braided some bailing twine to hang a jolly ball in my horse's outside run!
