Does anyone have a plan for a showbox?

Did you order one or make one?

Which animal do you show?

What is the most important thing in it?

What do you have in it?

How heavy is it with all items in it?

Are there any extra items that you put in it because you may just need it?

P2 will be old enough for 4H next year and I want to start collecting ideals and a list of items that you will need for each animal. He hasn't made a choice on which animal he wants to show. So any ideals or suggestion would be great.

Thanks.

The showbox in the barn from when DH BIL were in 4-H is about 2'H X 4'L X 1 1/2'W. They kept brushes, halters, feed bowls, and water buckets, and extra boots in it. I'd say it's fairly hefty w/ everything in it - tho couldn't say for sure since I can't lift it.

I fully believe that what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. I believe in dirt and germs!

P.S. they built it with their dad and grandpa, but I'm sure they made it up as they went along like just about everything they do around here, haha!

C my neice has wooden trunk sis bought that contains halters (for pigs it would be collars), leads, an animal first-aid kit, brushes, drying towels, animal soap, a pr of muck boots, hers also contains leg wraps, clippers, and a few other horse items that P2 wouldn't need.

I'll hunt around and see if I can find the tack trunk DIY plans I had and if I do I'll PM you.

Thanks F.

Even though P2 will start next school year with this 4H projects, he will be old enough to open show any animals when he turns 9 in August (that's when school starts for us). So if he wants to show one animals in open show and another for 4H as long as it's not in the same catagory he can do both. Better to start to look for plans now than the last minute and be forced to go with something that won't work for us.

Thank you.

I have pondered and searched for these plans. I would love to have input from someone else as to how to design and build a tack box that straddles all different forms of livestock, etc. Right now, my sons & daughter are showing pygmy goats, and there isn't much to keep in a tack box, honestly. A place for feed, hay, their collar and a lead rope, extra safety pins & show clothes, etc. However, my daughter wants to get into the horse show arena, and I KNOW that means MUCH more.

Any thoughts?
