I suppose also if you buy the ugliest one NO-ONE will want to nick it!

I hadn't thought of that...I still think they look silly though [}:)]

My arapawa sheep liked me best in my big brown wool jersey. Funny that ;)

when I was in my teens I had a horrible bright yellow nylon quilted jacket (as did everyone in those days..) and my friends horse always ended up giving me a nip on the arm when I had it on....at first it started out as a gentle nibble but went on to pretty good nips - I couldnt wear it at all around him - he even preferred to eat me than eat from his food bucket!

If my dogs dare wear their blue coats outside in the paddock the horses have a complete nervous breakdown and the cows damm near faint.Learnt that lesson in a hurry. As long as I am wearing a bucket or two it doesnt matter what garb I have on and some days it is pretty strange to say the least.

My cows become very suspicious if I'm not wearing blue overalls and think hard even after I've spoken. Golf umbrellas don't faze them at all and Hine, not being too stupid, has learnt that if she walks really close to me, she doesn't get her head wet. :D

Pippy (dog) nips my backside if I'm not wearing appropriate farm gear and gets a kick for her troubles. She will do it to strangers too and I've yet to work this one out as it's not a bite and it's not aggressive.

Cheers,
Ronnie

I also have horses that could not care what I am wearing as long as I have hay or their plastic bag of feed. They don't even care if the dogs wearing their fluro coloured raincoats are running at a million miles an hour around their paddock - as long as I have hay and the plastic bags.

Now the dogs are different. If I have my slippers on, they look like woebegone orphans but the minute I take my slippers off, put on socks, they are jumping in the air with excitment. Socks on means gumboots = outside in paddocks = fun and running at as million miles an hour. Yeah! Even the sheep, with reservations, have figured that these crazy dogs are not interested in them - just running and running and running.

I used to have a bedspread like that; called it my contraceptive duvet. :D [}:)]
