My mother needs very warm (think Michigan) glove liners and I'd like to get her some for Christmas. Money is no object--I want to buy her the best possible gloves. Should be tough enough for preparing grain and moving hay, warm enough to protect her hands, and soft enough to make her happy every time she wears them.

Anybody have any suggestions? If not a specific pair, what are the best brands? Thank you,

Dan

Well, I do not know much about "Work" gloves - but I can suggest a pair of gloves I wear all winter long.

Heratige Winter Riding Gloves:



Action Rider Tack, Inc.


I like these because they are not only very warm, nor are they bulky or awkward to wear. They are comfortable and sleek enough to do other chores other than ride.

I use them all winter - but I don't move hay around or feed, because the barn I board at does that for me, so I don't know how they would hold up for that - but I can tell you I use mine for shovling snow, and cleaning the car and taking the dogs for walks and all other winter activities around the house hold - aside from tacking up and riding and untacking.

I've had mine for a couple of years now, and there are no holes, no tears, nothing to show signs of breaking down.

I have a pair of work gloves I bought many years ago from the local tack store. They're brown/tan leather with fleece inside. Best things ever!!!

Unfortunately, I don't remember who manufactures them. But if you find a pair like that - buy them! They're warm, waterproof and durable. I've unloaded many hay loads with them and do all the barn chores with them on everyday in the winter.
