Here are 5 tips to make your life easier around the barn

Issue: Bridles, halters and leads laying all over the place.

Solution: Use your empty tuna cans and mount them in the barn as they are the perfect shape for holding bridles and halters.


Issue: Grain sacks are sitting out in the open and in the way

Solution: use an old chest freezer with the locking mechanism removed to store your feed. The old freezer can also be a great place to store your winter blankets.


Issue: You are seeing mice in your tack/feed room

Issue: The water buckets get coated with hard water residue

Issue: There is always dust all over your tack hanging up

Solution: Take a see through shower curtain and affix it to the wall above the tack hooks. With the see through curtain you can see what tack you want to grab.
