Just curious, what does the garden hose do for snake bites??? Here in Australia, we are told to wind bandages from the top of the limb to the bottom to prevent the spread of the venom. Lol I really don't know how the hose can help! Can someone please tell me?

The suggestions have been great so far - keep them up!

If the horse is bit on the face you can stuff the hose up the horses nose to keep a free air way in case of swelling.

I should look in our cantle bag. We have vet wrap, gauze, tape, hoof pick, last summer I had a tube of electrolytes in there, tweezers, I can't remember what else.

Sorry if this has already been said, but I would definitely have one of those instant ice pacs that you just shake/break (depends on how that one is made) Those come in handy! Actually I wished I had one today!

I also second the knife idea. You definitely want a knife!

Idk, if this was said, but how about calamine lotion? It makes the itchy go away and works great on fly bites because it heals them and the flys stay off better...
