Goldfish in the big, big water tanks to keep skeeters down.

Interesting ideas.
- An Amish couple I worked with suggested extra virgin Olive Oil for oiling saddles and leather, it does not darken the leather, its natural and as long as you don't mix it up with your cooking oil its pretty good.
- Goldfish in water tanks I have heard but but goldfish tend to be dirty fish (they produce a concentrated amonia urine) if you use them for larva control you should have a steady overflow trickle from the tank.
- Sanitary napkins have many uses around the barn
- a good roll of duct tape can save your life

Oh!! DUH! I use babywipes from the dollar store, infused with aloe, for my horse's pink nose and around his eyes. It also helps to protect him against any dry skin or help with burns :)

Unfortunately they have nothing left in stock. Am I missing something? Their website says they are already out of business and everything I click on says out of stock.

A few drops of citronella oil and ACV mixed in water makes a decent natural fly spray in a pinch.

Baking soda cleans anything, bits, buckets...

A bag of frozen peas, a towel or vet rap and duct tape makes a redneck ice boot.



I'm not sure how much of a money saver this is, just more of a life saver.

A staple in our first aid kit is Yarrow. Powder or tincture will do. I treat all sores, scrapes and cuts with it. It tripples the healing time and leaves no scar/keeps the wound from proud flesh.
