    If you're talking 'things' as in halters, brushes, etc. Just starting out supplies?? Always make sure you have standing wraps and cottons!! And poultice. Because your horse WILL hurt him/herself on a Sunday or an night or a holiday and you won't be able to buy some.

    Here's my list of suggestions that I haven't seen yet:

    - a leatherman (or other multi-purpose tool)
    - a PROPER fitting helmet
    - a lesson from your vet on when to call them and signs of the most common issues
    - a roll of duck tape
    - an old tooth brush
    - a tube of bute (& instructions from vet on when & how much)
    - more fly spray than you think you'll ever need
    - more fly repelent roll-on than you ever think you will ever need
    - bug spray for you
    - sunscreen, plan on just sharing with your horse
    - if your lead rope doesn't have a chain, think about getting one that can quickly be snapped on if needed
    - a quality zipper binder to keep all important papers (coggins, reg papers, contracts, etc)
    - at least a months salary in reserve for emergencies. The second it's not there your horse WILL get hurt, and it WON'T be cheap.

    It helps to have a large extra room in the house / garage or a large tack room, because you will run out of room rather quickly, lol
