Goodbye Old Boots! Thanks for all your hard work.

Well…the temps are getting colder and its about time to switch from the summer boots to the winter boots. For my current pair of boots, that means the end of the road. With the heavy use my boots get, I have to replace them every couple of years when the sides start to split and the heels get worn down.

Its always a bittersweet transition. Anyone who has a good worn in pair of boots knows, they start to feel like home to your feet. And having comfy happy feet is KEY in this profession. I can’t be worrying about my sore feet when I’m working on a colic at 10pm! But alas, the time comes when the old comfy boots are getting a little too worn out and so I must say “goodbye.”

I thank you old comfy boots.  You’ve been good to me and traveled a lot of miles this past few years. You’ve been covered in blood, urine, pus, placental fluid and who knows what else! And you’ve never failed me. Never come off my feet in the mud and protected my toes from stomping horse feet. I owe you a debt of gratitude and so now I retire you with dignity. Take care and farewell!

    I think a good old fashion shoe repair person could fix both of the problems this pair of comfy boots has. They are like an old friend that is worth hanging on to forever even though they cause some triction once in a while. ;
