I'm wondering if I should start consulting with the Carhartt company instead of The Farmers' Almanac for my weather predictions from now on because when Real Farmwives of America & Friends were asked by Carhartt to go shopping for our hubbies at their store, they had lighter weight clothing in mind.
Tall Guy LOVES his J001 Men's Duck Detroit Jacket, blanket lined in Carhartt Brown. (there really is no other color in his book; brown IS his favorite color....SERIOUSLY!) He likes his X-Large and Tall, and it was the perfect jacket to wear this late winter - early spring while he hauled corn and beans to Lafayette earlier this month. It also comes in handy for our cool mornings when the calves get their first feeding.
Sadie is trying to "be the cow" in this picture so she can have some milk too. These are our oldest daughter, Tink's, 4-H Dairy calves. Jerry is above
Tom and his twin, Sadie, are here, above, and Miss Ladybug in planning an attack to the rear of Tall Guy below! YIKES!
Now we are headed out to feed the big boys and girls, otherwise known as the feeder steers and heifers.
Sadie gets a bit more attention as Tall Guy talks to the equipment and encourages it to kick in and on one more time. Yep, it's old, but it works. I'm starting to appreciate that more and more.
Now there is one more thing to feed on the farm, and off they go to do it.
How did Tall Guy rate Carhartt's new jacket? Well, he thinks it's comfortable, easy to wear, and not too warm or bulky. He's used to the black-lined style for most warmthness, ( I think he just made up a new word!), but we really didn't have too much need for that much protection this winter, so the blanket lining suited him just fine!
OH~! These are his own words not Carhartt's. Believe me, I've tried to get him to follow an idea of what to say before, and that never flies. What's in his head is most certain to come out his mouth. and he truly likes his new coat! He is also totally amazed that Carhartt sent him this coat free to try. The only thing that arrives here free are farm magazines!
Thank you Carhartt! We are true believers in your product. I think all my hubby needs now is a regular hat with your logo on it to add to his collection ;-)
Want to have one just like Tall Guy's? I'm not sure it will turn you into a 6'3" farmer extraordinaire, but you will be looking good and warm while you are outside working in this crazy, unseasonable weather. Head on over now to the Real Farmwives of America & Friends page and sign up for a free coat! Hope you win! You never know how April and May are going to play out. Good Luck!
P.S. I had some pretty interesting "out-take" pictures from this shoot I will share with you soon!
