I know what you mean, that has happened to me, too.  I tried cutting into it
with a knife, but it was one solid mass.  I think once it has congealed, so
to speak, it is past its expiration date.

Vetwrap -- I used to carry that until I tried to use it. Couldn't unroll
it, seemed like it had merged into a unified whole. Does anybody know how
unroll year-old Vetwrap? It would be useful when we are in a thistle

My local Wal-mart has travel size packets of duct tape.  I also have a
small roll of electrical tape in there.  I also have an extra lead rope
(really light).

On my pommel I attach several dog collars.  You can clip stuff to them and
I have used them on several occasions for tack repair (my own and others).

Since things are kind of slow here, I wonder what ya'll find you just
live without while riding.
Me, well, I was never a boyscout, but I should've been. I tend to carry
everything, including a 'kitchen sink'.
Here's my list:  mini 1st aid kit--the band aids are used most
                       chap stick
                       bandana--use as a bandage, blow nose, use as a
sponge if the real one falls off or didn't get put on.....
                       old dish towel--same uses as the bandana, but I've
also used one folded up & vetrapped on to replace a lost shoe.
                                             The horse was lame after
losing the shoe & too much hoof, but was comfortable enough to ride out
                                              of the backcounrty with his
'slipper' on.
                       super glue (the little single use 4 pack)
                       zip ties--for fixing tack
                       swiss army knife
                       hoof pick
                       collapsible water dish
                       one of those little emergency blankets

That's all I can remember without going down to the tack area & checking.
Sounds like a lot, but it actually packs well.
