Chore Boots


I got new chore boots!

Because I can’t go around farmin’ in these chore sandals in the winter. And who else is gonna do chores but me?

And I can’t go around farmin’ in these “dress” farmgirl boots, either. They’d get dirty! Then what would I wear to the store? Dirty–farm. Clean (sorta)–go to town.

Not that I bought these official chore boots. I’m not very official.

And they’re too expensive.

Nor did I buy these daisy chore boots. Even though I :heart: them.

They’re too expensive. (Sigh!)

I bought these chore boots.

Fifteen dollars at Wal-Mart. But! They have pretty colors to choose from for the bottoms. I picked green.

They come in toddler sizes, too. Aren’t they cute? Almost makes me want a toddler. Except not really. Not that I don’t like toddlers, but I’ve already been there, done that, and I have a giant puppy, you know!

I brought my new chore boots home and showed them to Clover. She liked them, too! And– Oh! Yes!

She wants to do chores, too!!!!

    Where are Coco’s chore boots?? She is a working farm girl too 😀

    52 ties your boot laces? I assume those are 52’s hands. If so, he’s a keeper! The toddler boots are SO cute, but the pic of Clover is hilarious. How on earth did you get her to stand for that? :rotfl: Hooray for new chore boots!

  3. Diane says:

    The last poster noticed 52 hands. Now that is a man if you can get him to tie or untie your boots for you. Good going!!!

    Clover is too cute in your boots. Is she standing in them??

    I think CoCo would like a pair of boots too.

    Those boots are only 15.00 at Walmart. I might have to go and get myself a pair. Not that I live on a farm. I dont. We belong to a tractor club. There are time that a pair of rubber boots come in handy at the show grounds on a muddy day. lol. I feel like I play farmer a few times out of the year.

    I was falling down laughing at that last shot. Suzanne, you are too funny with the telling of this one. You should write a children’s book on the goats. I think you’d have a winner. xxoo

  7. Cecelia says:

    Love Clover in boots, too sweet. :thumbsup:

    Well, it’s fitting since she’s already hobbling herself.

    Those boots look awesome on Clover! Amazing how eager she is to do chores.

  10. jane says:

    Love Clover in your work boots, but somehow don’t think she will be too much help with the chores unless you have a lot of cookies to go with those boots. Where is Coco’s pair as she is a working dog (in training)…right.

  13. Treasia says:

    Chore boots always bring a smile to my face. I think of my little brother who was only two yrs. old when I was 18 and getting married. He wore his rubber boots all year long. Only he called them “ubber boots”. I can still hear him saying this.

    Clover looks so cute in them too.

  14. Suzette says:

    The last picture made me laugh out loud. Thanks for starting my day on a positive note!

    Do these new chore boots keep Clover from kicking and screaming on the milk stand? Go figure…all she really wanted was a new pair of CHORE BOOTS to preform her morning milking duties. Does anybody out there speak ‘MILK GOAT’?

  16. Amelia says:

    Loved seeing Clover in the boots…made me chuckle out loud.

    You are a writer – but your pictures conjure up lots of words too.

    Have a great week.

  17. Abiga/karen says:

    That’s it. I am goin’ to my local Walmart to get me a pair of them there boots. Only I have this toe that won’t bend and I might not be able to get them on or wear them comfortably.(I sound like the old ladies and their talk of health complaints now.) Well anyway I can look at them. Blessings.

  18. Jill S. says:

    LOVE the new look on Clover, lol!

  19. Katharina says:

    We only have three acres here, but everyone has chore boots. The are infinitely handy

    I saw a young girl at the pancake house yesterday, her hair and eyes said she had just been pulled from bed by her mom. She was wearing layers of capris, plaid knee length shorts, a flowered shirt and CHORE BOOTS. My husband and I chuckled, but I loved the look. Now that’s class.

    Clover is a great model. She’s got a future if the milking goes poorly.

  20. Nancy says:

    Clover does look very contented with the boots – next she’ll want her own overalls.

  21. Katharina says:

    PS The Daisy boots are cute for awhile, but you would have regretted them later. You chose wisely, grasshopper.

  22. Crystal B. says:

    I love the picture of Clover in the boots. 🙂

  23. Robin G. says:

    I think Clover’s chore is probably just to stand still for once…

  24. Maureen says:

    That is a great picture of Clover and your chore boots look great. It’s too bad you have to do chores to wear them.

  25. Jodie says:

    Chore boots… a new kind of hobble for Clover!

  26. J CopperCreekers says:

    :rotfl: Clover is just too too cute!

  27. Claudia W. says:

    :heart: the boots on Clover! Too cute!

  28. sunnid755 says:

    :yes: Life’s too short not to enjoy your chore boots. Wish you had gotten the daisy ones. Too bad writing doesn’t pay more. They look happy and I think would make the chores more fun! Thanks for sharing.

  29. Sarah S. says:

    Maybe if she wears them she won’t kick you when you milk her! :yes:

  30. kacey says:

    Those toddler boots are TOO Cute! You should have bought them just for their cuteness!!

  31. Susan says:

    Clover looks like she is enjoying herself wearing the boots! Hi 52!

  32. Cheryl in Sunny Cal (Calhoun Co.) says:

    Oh goodness…I got just the chuckle I needed today. Clover looks quite lovely in her chore boots :thumbsup:

  33. Brandy says:

    Son has a pair of those! *G* He wears his with his Darth Vader costume though. *G*

  34. Donna says:

    YUM Burrito Pie!! It’s looks delish!

    52 ties your shoes…like my husband ties mine. I love a man that ties my shoes. LOL

    I had jury duty today…I had new shoes that needed tieing and my husband tied mine. He said “who tied your shoes” in a snotty tone? Hmm Well, let me see. It could have been Petey our Parakeet. There is only he and I at home. Who ELSE would it be?????? He retied them. Also, my curling iron died AND HOT ROLLERS…and I burned my finger BAD getting my bagel out of the toaster. The day started with a bang – literally – he dropped the bottom to the birdcage too. LOL

  35. Stephanie says:

    Chore boots, I can’t wait until I need my own pair.. I like the green bottoms.

  36. catslady says:

    Maybe if you start writing those children’s books that we all think you would do so well at, you could buy the daisy boots next time lol.

  37. Netherfieldmom says:

    Gotta tell ya…I got the “official” ones…the expensive ones for my birthday last year and I will never own anything else, even if I have to sell things to get them. Handyman splurged on me, and then I had to splurge to get him some, then we returned some LL Bean boots we had bought for dd#1 and get some for her too. (She got talls.) Handyman is an outerwear expert and we’ve always bought nice “brand” boots. But these are without a doubt the quickest, warmest, comfortablest, sturdiest, snuggliest, best, BEST ever. (I like them a lot.) If I divide the price by the number of times I have worn them and staid warm in them, they’re cheap. Just wanted to give you a first-hand testimonial.
