    I save a lot of money on Coffee too. Do not even like the smell of the stuff.

    Never run out of TP. That is like running out of hay around here. Not a good thing. Buy it in the huge packs.

    Glad to hear I am not the only one!



    Yes, SR. A pill grinder. Works great when you are feeding lots of horses lots of pills. I got tired of crushing pills by hand when I was feeding at the boarding barn. Coffee grinder came to the rescue. Love it! Best way ever to crush pills.

    Reiner, if you get your hands on a cheap coffee grinder try it out for crushing pills. No mess, no fuss, quick and painless.

    I might have to give it a try. I use one of those 1 oz. Scoops you get with supplements and put the pill in there and crush it with the hammer. That way it stays in the little scoop and is easy to put over the feed.

    I am not good enough with a hammer to do that.

    Thankfully, both of mine will take things like Bute right out of my hand. Horse treat, horse treat, horse treat with bute pill, horse treat, horse treat. Only once (out of probably 100s of times) has either of my horses ever spit out the bute pill.

    When I have to give antibiotics (which is usually lots of pills) I use the coffee grinder.
    When I worked at the barn there was one horse who got bute daily, and the BO would not buy the ground stuff. I found a way that worked well for me every morning.

    I'm a huge penny picnher, I'll by store brand or generic just about everything. But TP and coffee are the two things I am very picky about. Most especially the coffee. I have to have my gourmet. Its my one personal indulgence. Since I consume a massive amount of coffee, it's got to be one I like! TP, I don't like using other than my brand, but will if I have to - as long as it's not upside down or backwards on the roll of course. I've already told you all that sends me into panic attacks. I'm known to change the rolls in other people's houses when I'm visiting.
