1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    I bought some wellies on evil bay last year thought they were mint neoprene lined only £30. Split within weeks, so sometimes it's worth paying more mate! Grubs or muck boot co supposed to be good.

    I just wear a pair of rigger boots, generally bought for £20-25. Surprisingly waterproof, insulated/ lined and steel toecap when required in the barns..

    I've never had a problem with them and can leave them in the van ready for the next building site visit. None of this £££ nonsense to look cool.

    Whatever you do, don't do what I did! Sometimes getting certain items cheap cause you're on a budget simply doesn't pay off :rolleyes:. I went and bought a pair of el cheapo's from Matalan (£14), and they are about as comfortable as standing on a pair of old nail ridden rusty planks lol :D. Waterproof? Yeah sure. But that's all I can say about them. First day out I walked about 2 miles in them and my feet were aching like crazy and my soles were sore and battered :rolleyes:.

    And to think, I could have doubled the money and had a great looking, stylish and comfortable pair of Dunlops from my local animal feed supplier for just £30. I will have to buy a good pair at some point with winter coming cause on the farm I'll be up to my armpits in mud and water otherwise. For now, I'm glad I bought my Hi-Tec walking/Hiking boots (£85 reduced to £50). 100% Waterproof, ultra light and sooooooo comfortable you could swear you're wearing slippers :D. Oh, and what's wrong with wearing slippers, I do often? :p

    Yes, I see your point about the hoofs. I used to get my tootsies trodden on by the horses I once owned many years ago and it hurts like ****!!! :p

    My current Barbour wellies are 13 years old and still look like new. The tread on the soles are heavily worn down now.

    To keep wellies from splitting wash mud off when you get home and let them dry naturally. Once dry I spray them with car tyre foam/shine. The silicone keeps them from drying and cracking and my boots always look super smart!

    Rigger boots! I wouldn't be able to lift my feet after 20 minutes with the weight of the toe cap and mud combined at my stables permission lol :eek:

    You can get the dunlop wellies for about £15 inc postage on the bay now, or at least you could last time I looked.

    Re the care to prevent wellies splitting - it never occurred to me that I would have to wash wellies lol, surely wellies are meant to be muddy? I take your point though and I suspect this is exactly what happened. Lesson learned for next pair...

    Hmm, I just looked and I guess they all had a price drop, depending on model I suppose lol :D. Grrrrr, if I hadn't thought I needed them that day, there's no way I would have paid Matalan £14 for the rubbish they sold me! :rolleyes:. I will be ordering a good pair from the bay soon then I think. These linked below are Dunlop and though possibly a little basic they seem ok for keeping the muck and water off my feet :). Not saying I would buy these particular one's. This was just a quick look, as there are all lots of makes/styles on there.

    Only problem with those is that they don't have adjustable sides, so if you have big calves they won't fit (damn you cycling!)
