    I'm looking for EASY slip on, water proof boots for animal chores this winter..
    I've been wearing my crocs and thats not working out so well in this weather. [​IMG]
    I have to walk up a little "hill" to put my geese away and if its ice/snow outside, its wicked slippery and i ALWAYS land on my butt..
    Like tonight..its been raining all day long... and the hill is pure slick mud.... yeah... not happy right now.. [​IMG]

    *any tips for getting ground in mud out of light clothes?* [​IMG]

    Do a search for 'Muckboots'. They slide on easily, have good tread, and last forever.
