This thread may only humor me.  There are many household items that are taken to the Barn that never return home.  This includes things brought to the Barn by anyone.  Once at the Barn .... they stay at the Barn.  I'll start with a few.

Garden hoses, scissors, tools, twist-ties, power strips, coffe grinder, Preparation-H, beard trimmer, coolers, extension cords

Platform Scale ...ugh?  Like a cooking one?

The old fashioned kind with the small platform and round dial - goes up to 20 pounds I think. 

Scissors, corn oil, towels, Vaseline, baby oil, every antibiotic ointment that used to be in the medicine cabinet, small bowls - after you've used your coffee grinder to crush the SMZ's, you need something to mix it in with the applesauce, right? Cheesy

Fun topic, Mare.

Any dishes that you might use to take scrapes out for the dog and cats .

The sweat shirts that were taken off at mid morning and hung up in the tack room.

Box of SOS pads.

Gotcha on the scale (that is what I thought). Yes on the dishes & bowls and anything to crush/mix with; that's where my coffee bean grinder went!

Beach towels, bath towels and hand towels for poop towels.  Sweatshirts -- where do they all go? The box of SOS pads reminds me of a Barn mate that used diapers and feminine pads for leg wraps (lol).

Rakes, shovels, dust buster, dust pans, I don't even own a real broom anymore.

Condoms, I'm without words.

Leaving years behind, hope your not sour skidmore!

Here are a few more:  Bungee cords, ladders, leaf blowers, fans, throw rugs, garbage cans, wine openers (oops, my bad), tape measures, gloves and sunglasses

Resurrecting this thread as a light-hearted Barn and Horse topic.  We have a lot of new horsefolk at BTW and lots of Harness enthusiasts that I am sure visit farms/barns and leave things behind.

I thought of a real obvious leave behind recently that we overlooked.   dollar dollar dollar

If anybody is up to sharing left behind items or things taken to the Barn that never return home ... please chime in.

  Sorry, can't help ya.  The one barn I've been at for 8 years has limited storage so I do a Spring and Fall clean-up.  Any equipment (mostly riding) not in use goes home to be stored in the appropriate box in the celler.*
  The other barns (racehorses) are always temporary so get cleaned/organized every time I move.

 * However, why is it as soon as you store something away, you always need it?

A new one - trouble light (light bulb in a metal cage with a hook on it). A month or so ago  our vet was coming to my other farm (hocks, coffins etc) early in the morning. Me, thinking ahead, grabbed my light out of the garage and brought it with me. Set it in the feed room, never needed it - plenty of light in the wash rack.

Last Saturday, radio dead in the truck. I suspect a blown fuse. Where the hell is my trouble light? Resting comfortably in my feed room 35 miles away! bang head

Thank God for Bic lighters laughing guy

OGM -- Good discipline.  You're reminding me of some things that get stored at "home" vs. cellars but never go back to the barn -- but should!

O&S -- Trouble light, good one.  I forgot about those.  I lost three of those halogen versions to the barn just for unfreezing hoses!

Couple more ... empty coffee cans and any container with a lid.
Work gloves ... two leave home, one ends up in the barn ... where one goes, nobody knows.

When I get mad at the world,wife,kids,etc I take my anger to the barn , and hopefully leave it there stored in the bottom of a tack trunk forever.
