The tack room is about 10 feet wide and about 30 feet long. I have about half the space and Kimfer & her dad have the other half. (I probably have too much stuff! lol)
This is the view from the doorway. The top row is halters, longe lines, and misc. Bottom row is headstalls. If you count from left to right, my halters, etc are on pegs 8-11 (top row) and bridles are on pegs 7-11 (bottom row)
This is the rest of the wall to the left of the halter/bridle hooks. My saddles (and Pie's) are the ones on the far left. Pie's saddle is first (in the navy) and then my main two saddles. I like the way the pads hang over the saddles, they really get to air out nicely. And I LOVE my saddle bags/carriers. They zip almost all the way around, have a shoulder strap (yeah right, I'm going to carry it on MY shoulder!) and are nylon lined. My saddles stay pretty clean and don't get clawed up if the cats happen to get locked in the tack room. Incidentally, the dark saddle on the right is Kimfer's dad's saddle. It's for his TWH and is frickin' HEAVY! I'm glad I don't have to heave that thing way up on Rainy or Ty!! (his -quite tall- TWH geldings) :)
This next pic is the far end wall. The blanket racks (yay!) Mine are the navy blue one on the outside through to that light plaid one. Of course they're all doubled (or tripled?) up so you can't really see them. Those blue rubber totes and the pads on the bench are Kimfer's.
These cupboards were originally in the house on the acreage. (Kimfer's dad is a contractor, the house was an old shack and he gutted it and has re-renovated several times, its VERY nice now). The cupboards came in handy in the tack room. The 3 closed doors on the right are mine. The stuff directly under them, yup mine (including the storage totes). That little cupboard between the shelf and the blankets has clean rags for bathing horses/cleaning wounds/cleaning saddles/etc in it. (they belong to Kimfer & I.)
These 3 cupboard doors (and below) belong to Kimfer & Mr.F (her dad). There is almost always at least one open. Usually its the end one closest to the door and I almost walk into it about once a day! lol
This is the other end (closest to the door, duh) The wooden saddle rack has Kimfer's English saddle. The one next to it (piled with stuff) has my other Western saddle and my English saddle. Don't ask! ... Okay, I'll tell you. We don't ride English. I've taken a very few lessons. Kimfer spent one winter learning. We both want to learn more and found these very inexpensive saddles. Kind of a "one day I WILL" thing. About half of those pegs on the left of the window are more of my stuff. (spare halters, bridles, bridle bag, yes reins! etc)
Now if that's not enough stuff for ya, we have more in the pump room. An old fridge holds a LOT of stuff! lol Kimfer & Mr.F have the freezer and directly on top of the fridge. I have the wooden shelf next to the fridge and the main body of the fridge itself. That ugly plaid thing is my "barn jacket" for when its cool but not really cold. I mostly wear it in the spring when the horse hair is flying! There are also more headstalls under that jacket as well as a rain jacket. This is the only heated room in the barn so in the winter Kimfer & I keep the headstalls we use most frequently in here. That way the bits are nice and warm when we bridle those ponies! :)
There is a radio to keep me company when I'm alone with the ponies, a helmet (which I am trying to get in the habit of wearing!) The blue pail is the "cool out" pail. I put water in it and sponge off the ponies if they work really hard on a hot day. :) Miscellaneous "stuff" in the boxes. Containers of Smooth Run products. Rubber boots, molasses, and oil on the floor.
A quick peek of what's inside the fridge: extra fly spray, hoof boots, Show Sheen, clippers, blade cool spray stuff, vet wrap, bandaging stuff, sweat scraper, bath stuff, wet wipes, aloe gel, honey, etc etc.
That might have been embarrassing. That might be too much info. Yes I am a bit of a product whore. Maybe I shouldn't have done this tour!! lol
