Tools Every Horse Owners Must Have

Horse are magnificent creatures that are immensely strong but surprisingly gentle. For anyone who owns a horse it is an absolute joy once you get the opportunity to get on your horse and ride it This is because horses can be a good way to spend your leisure time, and can also be a good way to take your mind off things and just enjoy the wind beating at your face. With that being said, horses are large creatures and if you are going to own a horse and tame it, it is also necessary to take good care of it and where you intend for it to live. This is the reason that we need tools.

Just like any other animal, a horse will dirtily its own environment through dropping and the food it consumes. It is the job of the well to clean up after the horse and make sure the horse is comfortable and well taken care of For that reason, this is a list that I have compiled that points out the most important tools to have for someone who owns a horse.

Manure or Muck Fork
The Manure or Muck fork is an essential tool for every horse owner out there. The fork is basically used as a tool to scrape off and collect manure that has been released by the horses. Horse droppings are rather large and so, it is necessary to have a fork that has a wide base and that is sturdy enough to last you for a considerable time.

Moving Dolly or Wheelbarrow
A horse owner also needs to own a wheelbarrow or a moving dolly. These are both tools useful for moving things and in the case of a horse and a horse owner, they are useful in moving stacks of hay, horse feed, and horse manure.

Straw Broom
Horses are known for their strengths and their speed. However, they get their strength from the food that they eat. To this regard, a must have for a horse owner is a straw broom. The horse feeds mostly on hay which they adore. The barn is bound to get messy because of the hay and so, a straw broom comes in handy, where it makes it easy to sweep hay on the ground and compound it for collection or for the horse to eat later.

Pitch Fork
Moving hay around is a part of being a horse owner Hay is a staple food for a horse, and so, it is necessary for a horse owner to be able to get and store hay for the horses. While it is time to feed it„ a pitchfork comes in handy where it helps to move hay from the moving Dolly storage area to the moving dolly and then to the horse.

Grooming Tools
Other than taking care of the place where the horse lives, another necessity is to take care of the horse itself. Grooming tools help to keep the horse healthy and physically appealing. Some important grooming tools for any horse owner are such as a halter, a saddle, a bridle and bit, a soft brush, and a hoof pick.

Woodworking Tools
The fact that stable is made mostly of woods, horse owners need some woodworking tools ready anytime. Some must-have woodworking tools are cabinet table saw, nails, hammer, screwdrivers, and extra woods to fix some parts just in case. You can check out  for some affordable tools and the features are also reviewed here.

Horse owners understand the beauty of owning a horse and that they are still a great responsibility. The above-mentioned tools are just but the essentials for a horse owner There are many other tools necessary for a horse owner that are readily available in hardware shops.

Animals playing Ping pong

I have played against many people ping pong, from in the best tables Stiga, the best table of ping-pong based from, until in tables of made wood, in-house, as it is to play with a human sometimes, it can be more comfortable, that to play with an animal.

I have seen many players at the best tables to play ping pong in tunes using all kinds of tables and rackets, we all have patterns, pressure, and things that can help another competitor to take advantage and win the game. Playing against an animal is different since he does not feel pressure, he has fun, in my case my cat was an expert especially inmates, I could never return one. Another aspect is its attributes as such, the reflexes and physical strength of an animal, sometimes give it an advantage, for example, the reactions of my cat were almost immediate, each ball that sent returned it, its feline reflexes allowed it to return almost any shot that I served, and all ended up being a point for him.

Other animals, can play this game, I saw a case like a dog in one of the best tables gave one of the best regional players beating, which, luckily never offered it in the official tournament. A score of 15-0 was the result of that game, the dog placing the racket in his muzzle hit the balls with such violence that each shot looked like a dunk, no matter where my friend put it, or what shot he made, from the left, volleys, direct, all hits were returned with the same power.

Another animal that plays very well in this sport is the monkey, the monkey for its high similarity to man can quickly grab the racket and play. Many will say that the monkey does not have enough intelligence to play. Perhaps, it has no strategy but does not have stress or tension. Also, the monkey can learn very fast about the sport just by looking at it, and its superior strength in the upper limbs and its great agility makes any ball sent to it end up being returned. Watching YouTube videos, I saw how in China, they were training a monkey to play; the result was that the disciple beat the teacher, he quickly hit his coach and without sweating.

As you can see, it does not matter which table it is in the best table in the world or a timetable. Animals have an advantage due to their instincts and natural abilities. Not having the competitive disadvantages of man such as pressure, stress frustration among others. Consider the fact that you can educate your pet to be your best opponent table tennis, if you had not considered it, do it, train him to help you, it is likely that he will later become your coach and help improve your skills in this sport.

In short, in this game as in many other animals, they can play better than man, it may sound strong or not, but it is really their animal capacities, they surpass many of ours, although we are more intelligent, sometimes, our emotions they can make us weaker than our home friends, my advice get a good tennis table or else, the best tennis table that you have available and train both, and you will have a great rival.

Tragedy in Midtown

Image result for new york horse carriage

At approximately 8:30 AM Sunday, October 23rd, a horse driving a carriage collapsed and died on 54th Street. The horse had just left the stable on the way to Central Park.

The sudden death of any horse is very uncommon, and this death is a reminder of why we cannot allow for carriage horses to work these harsh city streets any longer.

Now is the time for us to push the City Council to act on Intro 86. Please call the City Council members who haven’t committed to ending horse abuse yet, then let us know what they said.

SUGGESTED SCRIPT: Hello, my name is ________________. I’m calling because of the tragedy Sunday in Midtown where a carriage horse collapsed and died – I’d like to urge you to become a co-sponsor of Intro 86. This bill would replace horse carriages with antique replica electric cars and humanely retire the horses to sanctuaries.

(IF YES) Thanks so much for your support!

(FOR OPPONENTS) I urge you to reconsider. These horses are forced to endure 9 hour days in bitter cold and sweltering hot conditions. They breathe in harmful exhaust and pull heavy carriages. Then, they go home after their long shift to former tenement buildings where they are tied up in stalls that are far too small for them. These horses live half as long as regular horses. The sudden death of any horse is very uncommon, and this horse’s death was preventable. I urge you to reconsider your position.


Hello, my name is ________________. I’m calling in response to the horse that collapsed and died Sunday in Midtown, and to urge you to end the abuse of carriage horses in New York City by supporting Intro 86, a bill that phases out the carriage horse industry by replacing it with green replica classic cars. Carriages horses are forced to endure 9 hours days in the bitter cold, breathe harmful exhaust, and they live HALF as long as regular horses. That’s why it’s time to phase out the carriage horse industry. I hope you will support Intro 86. Thank you.

NYCLASS supports a full ban of horse carriages in New York City. We believe there are viable alternatives to carriage horses that will not only relieve the City government from its financial burden, but will also avoid the safety and quality of life issues caused by the horse carriages. However, achieving our long-term goal of a ban will take time and hard work. In the short term, the City needs to take immediate action to improve the safety of the horse carriages and protect passengers.

Over time, NYCLASS supports replacing horse carriages with “Green” replica classic cars. These cars can provide rides for tourists, offer jobs to workers currently in the horse carriage industry with the potential for higher wages, and maintain the historic and romantic feel of the tours.

Horse carriages currently leave a foul odor in the area around where they park and cause health and sanitation concerns for passengers and residents. The City needs to implement and enforce strict sanitation laws that make the carriage industry clean up its act.

“Green” replica classic cars will not cause any sanitation or health concerns. Their hybrid-electric engines will allow the cars to run extremely efficiently and turn off when stopped, minimizing the exhaust they contribute to the air and eliminating the nauseating smell of the horse carriages. The replica cars will also be able to keep up with the pace of motor vehicle traffic, thus eliminating the large amounts of vehicle idling around Central Park and midtown Manhattan caused by the horse carriages. The use of the “green” replica classic cars fits perfectly with Mayor Bloomberg’s PlaNYC initiatives of reducing global warming emissions by more than 30%, achieving the cleanest air of any big city in America, and reaching a full “state of good repair” for the City’s infrastructure.


The slow-moving horse carriages increase traffic congestion on busy City streets and spooked horses can cause life-threatening accidents. The City should take immediate action to require Carriage drivers to hold the same insurance policies as pedi-cabs. This insurance will protect the carriage industry, passengers and other drivers in case of an accident.

Replica classic cars will have the ability to drive at the same speeds as other cars, limiting the traffic congestion they cause. In addition, they will eliminate the chance of spooked horses causing dangerous traffic situations.


A recent audit by the New York City Comptroller reported that City agencies do not do an adequate job of assuring the safety and well-being of the horses involved in the horse carriage industry. While horse carriages remain on the streets, the City must consistently monitor the industry to prevent the horses from getting injured and the carriages from breaking during tours.

The replica classic cars will not only be more sanitary and less disruptive than horse carriages, they will also be significantly safer for drivers, passengers and others in the surrounding area. The replacement of horses with cars will prevent spooked horses from darting into traffic or tipping over carriages, avoiding many of the injuries and deaths related to the current industry. The wheels, similar to standard car wheels, will not create ruts in the streets that are dangerous for joggers and cyclists. In addition, since no animals will be involved in the industry, there will be no need to worry about inhumane treatment as with the carriage horses

NYCLASS will rescue all carriage horses and place them on farms and other similar suitable sanctuaries to be recuperated to their natural, healthy capacity and live out the remainder of their lives.

An Economic Benefit

The replacement of the horse carriage industry with a clean, livable and safe alternative – “green” replica classic cars – will provide the City with much needed revenue in a time of financial instability. The use of the meters and the ability to accept payment via credit and debit cards as well as cash will increase the number of residents and tourists who use the service and will create a profitable state of coexistence between the industry and the City. This initiative has already been successfully implemented in San Francisco, and promises to be even more successful in New York City – the tourism capital of the United States.

NYCLASS needs your help to get the City Council to pass a law banning carriage horses from New York’s streets and replacing them with profitable, safe and stately replica classic cars. Please visit our Take Action page to get involved.
