I suggest Muck brand boots. Comfy, water proof and they hold up well.
...and that reminds me of a story. When I was like 14, I went to a multiday show as a groom. I bought new boots right before I went to it. Oh-my-goodness, that was so awful. The boots were advertised as sneaker comfortable, but my feet have never been in so much pain. I think I pinched a nerve, because my big toe went numb, and I didn't have feeling in it for about 5 years (which in retrospect, I probably should have gotten that checked out, but oh well, it eventually got better! Fun party trick to poke at it with a needle)
So yeah... comfy boots are a must. When I worked at a barn, I eventually used sneakers, but those are no fun when any amount of water is involved.
But anyway - Congratulations!!! It does
sound like you found the perfect job! Great pay, great hours, great environment, and you'll know you're helping an animal in need. You're very lucky!
Did you want to reveal the name of the place? Maybe in PM? Just curious if it's someplace I've heard of.
