It's not only my toes that turn to ice at this time of year, it's also my finger tips! But I don't think i've been to the yard once in the past few years without my trusted Showa Nitrile Gloves. I have just purchased some pink ones to match my new socks. These fit so well you can do any chores in them. I literaly never take them off when i'm at the horses. And what's great is not only do they protect your hands from the harsh elements, they are also really good to ride in. And when they get in a right old mess...pop them in the washing machine and they are as good as new!
Yes it may be winter, freezing cold, pouring rain, and the mud is still bad, but a little bit of fashion has put the fun back in to the farm for me! :-)
