These boots were made for sloshin'....
Finally! I got to wear my new rain boots out in the weather!
I call these my sweet girly mud & muck camo boots. Whadayathink? I thought the brown background would blend in nicely with the mud, and the hearts would bring a little funky-fun color and a feminine touch as I muck around the ranch .
Today it was cloudy all day long and the mercury never got above 38 degrees. It wasn't bad outside....no wind which is a blessing. But at about 4:00 p.m. it began to snow. Big, feathery, thick flakes floating down just as if there was a great pillow fight in Heaven! It was mesmerizing! I just had to take a walk in it! So I pulled on my cute boots and yelled for the dogs and we took off through the mud and snow and sloshed around for a mile or so while meadowlarks and blackbirds serenaded us along the way. It seems the birds just go crazy over this wet weather. Glorious! The grass is really going to shoot up after this good, soaking snow. Maybe it'll rain tomorrow!
Hubby and Sons took the cows that haven't calved yet to the Big Shed for the night, just in case a new baby would be born. We don't want any chilled calves overnight.
Just in case you're interested, I found these boots on Zappos here. There are quite a few styles to choose from! And whadayaknow......after I bought them, I saw the cutest pair at Wal Mart! Pink Plaid!
