Default Cows and crocs (shoes)

For anyone wanting to get in the cattle business, do not wear crocs when trying to pen cattle, if you can help it. 25 head of neighbors cows got out, saw them when I walked outside. Didnít have time to put on boots. All s well that ends well, 30 min later they were safe and sound on my place and neighbor notified. Going across pasture in crocs is no fun.

Lmao. Did this once. Penned some mommas and pulled the calves off. Was going good till one mommas was not happy kicked me right in the foot luckily no damage canít help but think the cushion from the croc helped not break something. Lesson learned not a great idea.

I recently bought my first pair of Crocs and if I’m not careful of going to end up in one of the “people of Walmart memes” or a badly damaged foot. I’m addicted to them. I’m either wearing boots or crocs and often forget, I’m not wearing my boots. An accident waiting to happen.

Funny you should mention that, I was out tossing cubes the other day in flip flops. And a little fire cracker we call red rocket (10 month old f1 heifer) comes flying in like the Bandit running from the popo and slides into the plate right over one of my feet missing my foot but cut off about a inch of the end of the flip flop.

Could have been a train wreck

I do it in Keens every day. My boy always gets mad at me because it isn't "cowboy" to wear sandals. It isn't about the outfit, it is about the attitude.

I put out a grass fire with a wet blanket and my feet(wearing Walmart brand crocs). That wasn't much fun. Had a mesquite thorn stick a croc to my foot too. All the way through and about a half in into my foot.

There are several good reasons I don't own any here. No one has mentioned falling on their azz in a boat or slick concrete. Yet. $40 for some injected molded rubber? Pass. Somebody made a ton of $$$

I had about a 1/4" stob/stick stuck through my croc and an inch into my foot. Very painful and a lot of blood sloshing in my croc before I walked out of that pasture. Not the most durable shoe for bouncing around on untamed ground.

We older men know better to wear girly shoes for manly projects. My crocs are pool side, beach combing relaxing around the house crocs. LOL

Did this yesterday! My dad has Covid, and my mom called me about a sick cow at his place. I was in shorts and flip flops, but told her Iíd run out there, load her up and take her to the vet before my hardheaded dad tried to do it himself. Next thing I know, Iím chasing this not-so-sick cow across the pasture which has a truly epic crop of sticker burrs. Itís hard to run down a cow that doesnít want to be penned while hopping on one foot and pulling out stickers.

It was a bad day to dress down.

I wear mine for pretty much everything around my place. It does amaze me how welding sparks and stickers always sneak in those little holes.

I wear my crocs all the time while working cows. Unless it’s rained or the ground is wet.

Sorry guys...Just cannot get into wearing crocs. I understand they are convenient and maybe even comfy. I always saw them as something a nurse or chef would wear standing long hours on hard concrete floors and Dutch folks who modernized from wood shoes
There is so much prickly pear, cockle burs, red ants, scorpions and plants that will make you bleed outside that you would never catch me off the deck without closed toe footwear.

I agree with you 100%. It blows my mind to see kids wearing these abominations of footwear, but then to see grown men wearing themÖÖmy goodness. I would have never guessed they were so popular among this crowd here until I just read this post. At work we are pretty rough on the ďCroc crowdĒ, but what gets hammered the worst is the ďCrocs and socksĒ guys. To each their own I guess. All in good fun.
