I've used bailing twine to tie my hair up in a ponytail at the barn before.

People stuff is in a separate organizer. I won't take the chance that a kid or someone else could "self-doctor" with something that is harmful to humans.
Well ... aren't you just a little OCD ..! lol

Uh .. everything o.o Baling twine is your best friend, I use that stuff for everything!! The saddle soap, I use that on my leather boots. Hoof picks are screwdrivers, there's no difference in the hairbrushes around here, just about everything y'all have mentioned. Saddle pads = pillow, Blankets = blanket, Tack trunk =bed! Make do with just about everything!

Except the rectal thermometer, can't say I've EVER used that for anything other than what it's inteded to do

Never claimed I wasn't!!!

I don't use horse brushes or anything else on myself... ewww!

My trainer is known to grab my fleece cooler and wrap it around herself when she's cold. Only grabs mine.... because I am OCD and wash it after each use on my horse!
