I've used a lead rope and bailing twine to secure a fish tank and stand in the back of my truck when I didn't have any tie down straps.

So apparently I am the only person who has a plastic box of hair ties, in all colors, in their tack box?

My horses blanket as my own blanket on long road trips to horse shows lol, Braiding elastics for my hair, Horse trailer as a hotel ( only had with a tack room, no living quarters )... Who hasn't used Mane & Tail for their own hair? lol Tried eating my horses food when I was a young teen to see what it tasted like, beet pulp = terrible.

Our dogs love sweet feed and I've caught the kids eating it too lol

My hubby is a painter and needs a scrub brush to get dry paint off his arms. One day his went missing so he raided my tack box for a stiff brush

As a kid the water troughs made a good place to cool off. Now my kids do it too. They just jump in lol and usually I can get them to clean the troughs too win/win

Ive used my horses blanket as a blanket and a couple of times as an umbrella during a freak down pour

Ive used her brush too and Delfina I have hair ties just not in every color lol and I keep them there for me not my horse. She has braiding bands which my hubby steals for his super long beard.

I've used a saddle pad at a football game because I forgot my bleacher chair and metal bleachers are super uncomfortable

And of course Ive done everything listed besides the floss which now I have to try lol

Hoof picks to get stuff out of small places
Posted via Mobile Device
The hoof pick is the greastest invention. I keep one in the garage to open paint cans, get stuff out of small spaces etc.

I have also used horse blankets to keep warm in certian situations. I use vet wrap for all kinds of stuff.

Mostly my horse uses *my* stuff. Matress pads cut up to make leg wraps, I use my special Wen essential oils for her mane and tail, my hairbands to hold a braided tail, my medical supplies for cuts and scrapes, my shampoo and conditioners, my body wash puffs make a good bath scrubber, bleach diluted for thrush, I uses a people hairbrush on her mane and tail, washcloths, towels, I could go on and on.

I know, I'm anal.

I will admit, I forgot to bring a leadrope when I picked up my gelding and after ransacking the tackroom of my trainer's trailer, my trainer tied him with a DOG LEASH! I was mortified...

Horse liniment works wonders for sore muscles! I love Ice-a-Gel!
Saddle pads for a sleeping pad, saddle blankets for added warmth on top.
Twine get used for everything!
Vet wrap is my best friend!

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

I too use Vet wrap, I sprained my ankle Friday(on flat ground...sober, LOL!, I love getting older..)

I use retired saddle blankets and pads for dog beds. Also used them for extra padding underneath my bed roll.
Have used Cowboy Magic, World Champion Pepi spray(that stuff smells awesome!) and a tail brush to freshen up after spending the night in the the "horse trailer motel".
Used Bute in a pinch for a pain killer, I don't recommend doing that for any length of time though or very often.
Used tail hair for a hair tie, same with braid bands.
I use my horse clippers to cut my husbands hair.
Have used rope halters/lead ropes to tie dog onto truck while working cows and had some ruined by being chewed through...so dont use your favorite!
