Best cold weather chore gloves?

I've been wearing deerskin gloves lined with thinsulate but I can't seem to keep my fingers warm on the frigid, windy days we've been having lately. They are heavy enough I have to take them off to measure out horse supplements, etc. But even if I'm just out scooping poop, my hands can get pretty cold if the temps are in the teens or below.

Anyone have any suggestions on what type of gloves work well for doing chores around the barn that will actually keep hands warm? Keeping them dry is a plus too....

This brand Hestra

Not the cheapest but oh man do they make a good glove. I am still using the army leather heli ski for around the barn for outdoor chores. I maybe have seen 600+ days of use. Shovelling, skiing, tying ropes, writing (these are dexterous, like you would not believe), hucking chargers, probing, skied over, bled on, snotted on, used to clear ice from car, beer holder, feeding out, saddling and you get the idea.

Bomber glove, keeps my fingers warmer then other gloves. I have the mitts yet only use them when it's -25c or colder.

I should also add, these are the same gloves I used as my work gloves ski patrolling - 5am to 5pm work day in the rocky mountains.

I have some water proof mountaineering gloves from Cabela's. They are great for long days and doing anything that involves a water pipe, tank or well.

But for regular chores or riding for a few hours, say 1 to 6, I use unlined leather gloves with brown jersey ones underneath. I carry several pair of extra brown jersey ones with me in a truck or in my saddle pockets and change them out as needed.
