Heel straps for spurs. Saddle ties. Pretty much anything.

Weaving together for garden fencing. Around here everybody is using orange or blue, so I guess we're supporting the Illini. =P

I've used it to make a twitch. All you need is some twine and a snap!

Car repairs.

Tied down the lid for the master brake cylinder. The clips had disappeared when I checked the level, per hubby's instructions.:)

I use it every summer as a makeshift tail since my horse's tail is in vet wrap all year. Works like a charm!

I am not a crafty type person, but one year I was in charge of coming up with reasonably priced thank you gifts for volunteers at a riding club banquet. I bought a sack of horse crunch cookies, a roll of that cellophane gift wrap stuff and made little pouches of the cookies tied with baling twine. I stayed under budget and got applause for my craftiness & keeping with the horse theme. Okay brag over, carry on....

A hula skirt!! :P

I was going to use some last year to make a hula skirt for my daughter. But the friend ended up not doing that theme for the party.
Now that we have moved and have the horses at home, I have lots of twine. Just to drive my husband batty, I keep one piece of twine tied and hanging in a loose loop on a post. Then as the twines come off the bales, I loop them onto the 'master loop' (lol) for quick storage of the loops. It ends up looking like a giant hula skirt. He hates the look of it hanging there. But I like the kept clean appearance of it. I am always afraid a dog or horse will be dumb and try to eat a loose twine, so this prevents that problem. And I can also access them easily for quick use. My most frequent use is as hair ties when I am climbing through the bales and can't see, or as I go out to the pasture to work.
I also have a couple attached to my saddle for emergency use. Tied the dumb dog with it once on the trail when I had to last min lunge my misbehaving mare and she decided to chase her feet. I tie saddle bags on all the time as well with it.

I've used it in winter to tie a jacket together that the zipper broke on.
I've taken it riding when i had no extra leather strips and used it for broken things.
Hauling hay.
I've made two temporary bridles.
I've made temporary halters.

Any darn thing that needs tying is my answer. I even bought a bag of leather strings because I thought they'd look better. The darn bailing twine, though, is just always there.
