Free Easy Ways

-I usually use feed bags for trash. -Sometimes I reuse vet wrap if I used it for someting like wrapping an uninjured leg or tail. -You can use broken halters as neck straps so you dont fall, however they sometimes slip. -I keep my feed in an old freezer that didnt work. The mice and rats can not get in. -Rags CAN be washed and reused or if they were only used for grooming then you can hang them on a fence and they rinse really well. -Saddle pads can also be cleaned this way. -I have never thrown away a broken halter. They are good for cutting up to use as blanket patches.
