If you give a farm gal a bucket ...

By July 01, 2011 , , , ,

If you give a farm gal a bucket, more than likely, it's going to get used, and often! So a BIG ol thanks and shoutout to Red Hill General Store for giving this Hoosier Farm Bab(ie) momma her very own NEW 4 qt. galvanized bucket.

Since I've been spending some more time outside in this beautiful warm weather, I knew right away that I wanted to use my shiny new bucket around the farm, but I didn't want to give it up completely for piggie chores ... So out to the horse barn it went with me, bringing me to the tack room where I took a a sad look at my hot pink barn tote that I've been using to carry brushes and grooming supplies for at least the past 15 years.

While I'm not willing to part with my hot pink tote completely, yet (too many memories of my old horse), I do have some new brushes (also hot pink) and fly spray that could use an organized home of their own.

And why not my NEW bucket!

 It perfectly stores all of the grooming supplies (brushes, hair comb, spray and hoof pick) that I need to give Roxy her weekly TLC ... but without all the extra supplies that I don't necessarily need on a regular basis such as braiding bands (that I either use to "band" my horse's mane for a show or just braid her forelock because it looks cute!)

Roxy is clearly stoked!

Her neighbor is super jealous!

My hot pink grooming tote. I also have some other barn supplies in zebra and leopard print - just trying to keep it fabulous out in the horse barn, LOL!

Hey and guess what the Real Farmwives of America and Friends are giving away an awesome Galavanized Tub from Red Hill General Stores so head on over and sign up to win your very own tub that you can use around your farm, home or garden!

Please note Red Hill General Store did provide me with this bucket, but the photos and ideas shared about this bucket are my own.
