Since I am getting close to bringing the Beau Monster home.. I am starting to make my list of items that I need to have at home for my barn and arena.
For me.. I have to decide what I need to have and what is on my wish list for later. There are those things you can't do without, and things that would be nice to have, but would not fall into the HAVE to HAVE category.
What I feel I need:
Corner Feeder (this is for supplements and grain)
Cross Ties (for the aisle, so I can get him ready)
Bedding (I use pellets)
Hay (I would like to have 3 months of Hay to start with)
Triple Crown (2 bags at least to get me started)
2 Garbage cans (the metal kind with lids)
Tack Room Door
Arena Footing (I am starting with Sand and Sawdust)
Hot Tape and Energizer for temporary paddocks and Arena
Two Gates for the arena
Did I forget anything???
Here is my wishlist:
Mirrors for the arena
Beadboard for my tackroom
Chairs, lamps, counter and cabinets for the tack room
second stall completed...
Wash rack and mats completed
Matted and concreted aisle
Concrete in the feed room with sliding doors on the feed room
Compost bin for manure
Trailer for my lawnmower to move poo around
an Arena Drag/Harrow
Tractor (a large one..)
Hot water tank
Gravel all the way around the outside of the arena
Paddocks finished and fenced
Trees cut up and moved out of the pastures
a new job that allows me to work from home
winning the lottery!
I think that covers it for now.. I could keep going, but the last one really sums it up.
