Wearing out my Raingear
The work of a shepherd is hard on work clothes, I've decided. Most of my hats are sweat- and dust-stained. The collars of my workshirts are generally stained (if not worn through). My jeans feature holes where the 12-volt fence batteries touch them when I'm carrying them. As much as I try to keep my work boots oiled, they're usually dusty and worn. And my coats - I can usually only get 3-4 years out of a Carhartt canvas jacket - and same generally goes for my raingear. If there's any silver lining to this drought, I guess, it might the fact that I'll be able to get another year out of my Carhartt rainsuit - hardly used it at all last year! I hope I wear the sucker out this winter!
