Boots

I am volunteering at a stable starting Thursday. There will obviously be a lot of cleaning, a lot of stepping in poo and mud and sorts. I was hoping to get some nice boots that will keep my feet dry and warm, especially since winter is coming up. Does anyone have any suggestions? I really like these, they look nice, but they are quite expensive: Mudruckers Tall Boots - Horse.com

I like Bogs personally, I have a couple pares and they hold up quite well.

Thank you for the suggestion! How about these? What are the difference between these and the ones you suggested, other than a small price difference? Bogs Classic High Boot - Waterproof Footwear from SmartPak Equine

Also... any other suggestions? :)

I have a pair of Bogs Classic High boots and love them. My only complaint would be that they're a little too warm to wear for barn chores in the summer.

Brit Colt Muck Boots! Fit true to size and are super comfy and good in hot and cold weather. I wear them to ride as well.
They are somewhat expensive, but I found mine on ebay for less than half price. Shop around a little.

*** Edit: Mine were still brand new in the box too. I got them a day earlier than expected. I bought them from this shop: Follow a1bargains on eBay Profiles

Hey... I'm looking at them on Amazon, can you explain the difference between "chore" and "muckmaster" and "classic" and "wetland" etc.? Or is there anywhere that explains it?

http://www.amazon.com/Original-MuckBoots-Adult-Hi-Cut-Boot/dp/B000WH2KCC/ref=pd_sbs_shoe_3These are the "chore" boots I'm looking at. I think these are pretty decent. A bit more expensive than I was hoping. I might just go with these. Are there any suggestions for boots that are similar but $80 or less?

The page wouldn't load for me, but if you go to Muck Boots website they have the specifications of each boot there. Muck Boots for Men, Women & Kids | Muck Boots Outlet
I've only ever had the Brit Colts, so can't vouch for any of the others.
