    You want boots to do chores in?

    I suggest Muck brand boots. Comfy, water proof and they hold up well.

    Good advice!

    ...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.

    Yeah, I just need comfy boots to walk around in forever. My riding boots are nasty old Ovations. They'll work while I break in my new boots, but they're too short in the foot heightwise for insoles. :<

    I may have to bring my sneakers for the first few days. But they're Shape-Ups to help my poor shattered ankles, and last time I wore them for 8 hours, standing constantly, I got pretty good tendonitis.

    You might have heard of it, given your location. I'll PM you. C:

    But because of this, I get to lease the horse I've been pouring my work into, for $150/mo, + vet and farrier since we're putting weighted shoes on the moo-cow. Vet's only like $60 because I only do coggins + rabies.

    Keen boots! They're hiking boots, waterproof and they are made so they form to your feet. They also offer ankle support. I always go to the barn in them.
