I'm a bare hand guy most of the time. If I have work gloves on for a project and decide a horse needs me to do something, then I don't bother to remove the work gloves. If my horses care about the difference, they've hidden their feelings well.
When tacking up, I always have a bucket of water...helps for doing spot washes on them, and cleaning my hands before I ride.
