My name is Louise, we live near Vulcan, Alberta. We currently have 16 horses that are in various stages of training. We work our own cattle as well as help the neighbors when the call comes in, we do some trail riding but not nearly enough to keep me amused.

I have low blood pressure too, but it doesn't affect my cold tolerance like it does my Mom and Aunts.
We were calving in -40C and colder last year and for the most part I was running around in a good Carrhart coat, spandex leggings, muck boots and leather lined gloves. As long as my feet are warm, the rest of me stays pretty warm too. Arctic Sport boots by Muckboots are the most amazing winter gear ever. I spent years wearing Sorels and I will never go back to them

Buy some Muckboots and you will finally know what warm feet are lol.
My feet are always damp in them but I have to be out for a long time and not moving for my feet to get cold. They are completely waterproof to the knees, but my feet sweat because the boots are made of the same stuff that divers wear

The last time I was in PA, it had snowed a lot and I jumped out of the semi in snow and water to my butt wearing shorts, tank top and Sorels. I fueled up, went in to eat and caused stares of horror, they thought I was an escaped lunatic lmao. I had to explain that I was Canadian hahaha
