Up For Review

You know, from just a couple of days ago, that I agreed to review product from CSN Stores.  I was initially disappointed that they don't carry any horse-related equipment in their pets or outdoor section, and I had agreed to do a review on this blog, which is horse-related.  As I was browsing through their site, I came upon some boots that I can use as muck boots.

I've never actually owned my own pair of muck boots; I've always just borrowed Mom's.  Boy is she going to be happy that I'm getting my own!  The sizing may be an issue, as they don't come in half sizes, only whole.  I went up a half a size when I ordered, and I'm sure that will be okay, because I'm not going to live in these boots - just pull them on when I have to go out to a muddy pen.  The bonus is that they're steel-toed so my little tootsies are protected.

They're scheduled to ship next week (holiday weekend) and I expect them the following week.  Now all we need is some rain so I can test them out...

Those are super-cute!

Let me know how they work out for you. I was very happy with my experience with CSN so I'd trust them for further purchases too.

Rain? You can borrow ours!

I'm not sure I'm ready for rain-muck yet, having just gotten past the snow melt. Cute boots, and I bet they live at the lodge, sooo......
I think our feet are about the same size.

You needed PINK ones! ;)

Rach - they are cute. I can't wait to get them.

Mom - yeah, they'll probably live at the Lodge with the rest of my horse gear. And, I suppose, since I've used yours since 2004, you can borrow mine once in a while.

Mrs Mom - I don't do pink. It's red's wimpy little sister. (Okay, I do pink on occasion, but not routinely.)

I used to wear those white wellis when I worked in a food factory! Not cool, not comfy, not the sort of thing any self respecting person should wear to a tea party!

GunDiva said...

Cheyenne - I have to tell you, they look to me like something you'd wear on the kill floor. I don't expect them to be comfy for the length of time I'll be wearing them, I just want to keep the mud off my boots and keep my feet dry.

Just be careful not to get stepped on by a horse in boots like that.
A friend of mine was wearing steel toes muckers and had a horse step on the end...and the steel bent down and severed three of her toes!

The steel is not as secure and stiff as the steel in typical work boots because rubber is so loose and flimsy.

I hope they serve you well, though. Just stay away from horse hooves. lol!

Lisa, just the thought makes my toes curl. I actually sighed a breath of relief when they got here and I realized they were just "safety" toes, not steel toes.
