In Case of Emergency…

Printables are available for personal, non-commercial use only please! They are for fun – I do not make any money from these and will remove them if necessary or requested. 🙂

Horses are particularly good at finding new ways to hurt themselves. Every barn needs a well-stocked first aid kit, right?FirstAid01I was inspired by some things I came across on Pinterest and decided that I needed to re-create a kit in miniature. Besides, I’ve been on a “shrink all the things!” kick in Photoshop lately… so it miiiight have been an excuse to find more horsey-related things to print up.

It’s kind of funny (or crazy?) that I wanted to make a first-aid kit at all, because anyone who knows me knows that I have issues with anything medical related. Seriously, I can’t listen to people talk about medical procedures or problems without starting to feel light-headed. It’s bizarre.

So let’s google horse first-aid Nichelle, THAT’S A VERY GOOD IDEA.

Luckily I’m slightly better with animal stuff.

The bag I actually put together last, after realizing that I had dozens tiny pieces and no way to contain them all. It was sewn up from fabric, with an added ribbon strap.

It can’t actually close, but since it overlaps some it doesn’t bother me too much.

All the bottles were sculpted from polymer clay, then covered with labels I put together in photoshop.FirstAid08

FirstAid09The bandage scissors and tweezers were made from some very thin cardboard I had on hand, and the vet wrap was made from scrap fabric, wrapped around a paper tube. (formed around a toothpick first)

There’s also a first aid book – this was an attempt at creating a spiral bound book, and apart from one ripped hole (why is it always the VERY LAST one?!) I think it turned out ok:FirstAid05

I also made sure to add a tiny roll of paper towels and duct tape, as well as a box of gloves, a bag of gauze pads, a roll of cotton, and a box of ointment with a name I can’t pronounce. Oh, and a teeny tiny thermometer.FirstAid07

The only piece I didn’t make was this – it came with one of Breyer’s vet dolls and is terribly out of scale. I just added the label to it, since I wasn’t feeling adventurous enough to make one of my own.

And even though it’s not first-aid related, I also printed up some packaging for horse wormers. A year’s supply, because having one just wasn’t good enough nooo…FirstAid012

Everything can be tucked away into the bag, in case of plastic pony emergencies.

Also, HERE’S a PDF file of the boxes/labels if anyone is interested! (betadine label was re-sized… mine is a bit too big)

  1. Wow! Very nice! Thank you for sharing the labels! I need to figure out how to make my own. I’m usually good in photoshop, but I haven’t tried shrinking things yet….

    1. hey how do you make your bell boots you said you had a pattern i kinda am intrested in making some

      1. I’m not comfortable sharing my pattern, but if it helps any, the boots are roughly a wide “C” shape cut from skiver leather. It took lots of trial and error to get a final shape and size I was happy with 🙂

    1. I’ve used Sculpey polymer clay for several different projects and have been happy with it. It has to be baked to cure, but it is easy to work with.
