Many of us wouldn’t want to know what life would be like at the barn without a dedicated barn manager. They keep the place organized, from employee duties to supply restocks, assistance with veterinary and farrier visits, record keeping, and property maintenance. Honestly, the list is endless. If you appreciate your barn manager as much as we do, here is a list of essential gift ideas that will be sure to make them smile.

Day-to-Day Necessities

Bucket Heater or Sinking Tank De-Icer

Allied Precision Bucket Heater for Barn Manager Gifts available at FarmVet

Winter and cold weather can create frustrating frozen water situations. Help make your barn manager’s day just a bit easier and put their mind at ease that the horses will have plenty of water available! The Allied Precision Bucket Heater fights ice and cold water by heating the water as opposed to de-icing water. This also encourages your horse to drink since the water is not as cold. For outdoor water tanks, the Sinking Tank De-Icer from Allied Precision sits at the bottom to prevent freezing and melt away any ice that is present.

Feed Scoop

FarmVet Feed Scoop for Barn Manager Gifts available at FarmVet

Most barns have plenty of feed scoops available, but this 3qt feed scoop is unique with pre-labeled measurements to make feeding easy and accurate. Your barn manager can rest assured that the horses are getting their proper amount of feed and supplements with this easy measuring solution.

Blanket Safe Blanket Wash

Blanket Safe Blanket Wash and Deodorizer for Barn Manager Gifts available at FarmVet

An important part of maintaining a clean and organized barn is keeping blankets, coolers, fly sheets, and more washed and clean. This especially is the case at the start and end of blanketing season, and, for the messy horses, a few times throughout the winter. Blanket Safe has multiple formulas and scents available so you can choose the one that best suits your barn’s needs.

Vitafloor Q-Line Roll-Up
