This Month We Love - Stable Yard Equipment
With winter over halfway done and the spring just around the corner, this may be the time to look at replacing old and damaged stable yard equipment. We decided to compile an overview of some great yard tools you'll need to keep you going until spring...
Hang those wet, muddy rugs up with the Stubbs Wall Mounted Rug Rack at £69.13 for a three armhanger, including free delivery.
Stubbs Wall Mounted Rug Racks
Alternatively if you don't have the space, or budget, you could choose the Stubbs Horse Rug Rail at only £19.16 which again includes free delivery. This smaller rack sits well in the stable due to minimum amount of space required, nicely replacing the bailing twine.
We love the traditional corn brooms not only are they lightweight, but they're great to use on uneven yards and cobbles too. Ideal for use in the hay barn. We liked the longer and colourful handle on these. Each broom costs £21.95, plus £3.95 for delivery.
Looking for something a little harder wearing, the wider and flatter Harold Moore Stable and Yard Broom comes in a variety of colours and is great to cover a larger area when brushing. Easy to wash out and long lasting these brooms are available to purchase at £26.94 and include free delivery.
For shaving beds, we can personally recommend the Fyna-Lite shavings fork for durability and use-ability. The fork has a metal handle and makes mucking out easier, especially when having to do several stables. Great for the taller user with a longer handle, the fork lasts year after year. Also available in a junior size. Costs £37.50 including free delivery.
If you are after a super lightweight shavings fork for smaller beds, the ABS fork does what it says on the tin. Recommended for bedding that's used with stable mats, the fork comes with a handy mid grip and long handle. Cost effective at £22.95 including free delivery.
Tubtrugs come in a variety of colours and are uncountably the latest in must have feeding and yard equipment. The sizes vary, however so does the price and if budget is your thing, these strong and durable bowls may not be an option, however what we can say is you do get value for money as they are lightweight and can last for years. The colour options are also a good way of splitting feed and water buckets between different horses. Priced from £5.95 including free delivery.
Keep everything you need on a daily basis in a clean dry place, right outside your horse's box with the Pro Tack Extra Large Grooming Box. Dimensions; 33.8Cm height, 28.7Cm depth And 51.5Cm width. Use with or without separators ideal for grooming items, storing rugs, boots and anything else you may need to keep handy. Priced at £32.49 including free delivery.
Nothing beats a good shovel for getting rid of deep litter beds. The Horka Lightweight Plastic Shovel does exactly that, making beds easier to take out. With a sturdy handle and deep scoop, the shovel is priced at 17.85 including free delivery.
