First off – I know, I know, I missed Foal Friday last week. Many apologies, and no I’m not dead, but truth be told I’m insanely busy right now and sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Unfortunately when that happens the blog is the first thing to go by the wayside. I have some posts half-done, including foal stuff and Pau analysis, but I’ve had zero time to sit down and finish. It’s coming, I promise.
Until then, I have a practical, more pressing issue.
My beloved barn boots have been on their way out for a few months now but the insanity of the past week has been their real coup de grace. They’re falling apart more and more by the hour at this point, and I need new boots like yesterday. I’m not 100% convinced I want to go with Blundstones again though, I feel like these didn’t last me as long as my previous pair. I don’t pay much attention to the paddock boot market so I’m not sure if there’s anything similar out there that I should try this time instead.
Here’s what I want:
- ankle height
- pull on with elastic sides
- good tread
- can take a beating – I muck stalls and dredge through mud in these things
- not stupidly expensive
- comfy for all day wear
- not narrow in the footbed or toe
Give me your recommendations please!
I’m off for another full day, hopefully things will be more normal around here by tomorrow.
