I will have to get pictures of our tack room.

It's an inclosed seperate room from the barn. We need to put some more hooks up and some shelves would be nice! I plan on decorating it to make it more home-y :) I hangout at the barn quite a bit so why not be comfy!

So as not to start a new thread, I'm gonna hijack this one for a second. Do any of you have problems with theft? I'm having a large addition put on my barn, and the tack and feed room will be together. I can't lock it because inevitably the key will be lost and I'll be locked out of the feedroom. I'm wondering if it's even worth it to keep my saddles in the tack room. We're in a pretty rural area and I can't imagine any of our elderly neighbors breaking into the barn at night, but you never know.

Because of how our farm, house and outbuildings are laid out, securing each building is next to impossible so we secure the property with locked and automated gates and survelence. Every enterence to every building has a camera on it, the gate has a camera coming in and going out. The barn as a camera in the main area one in each stall and two in the foaling stall. Also the entire property has invisable dog fencing with the property fencing (where we have it and then burried along the property line everwhere else (as the entire property isn't fenced), and our heard of Great Danes have outdoor/indoor access (to their room only which is deadbolted with fire door, from the rest of the house).

We also have warning signs our our gate with the security company sign, loose great dane warnings and survelence warnings.

It's not about securing your stuff, so much as it is making your place look more risky and more dangerous than the house or farm next door.

You could always use a combination lock instead of a key lock. You could write the code down as a contact in you phone in case you ever forget.

^ I considered that, and I think that's what I might do.
