Hoof mittens...your essential guide
Now sometimes, perhaps once every 5 minutes or so, Norma (my best friend) will say something like 'what do you think of this hat?' and I'll reply, 'what do I care, let's go for a paddle'.
But it must be said that some items of clothing are more important than others and none more so than a nice quad of hoof mittens.
Basically you have a choice of two types, stripes or spots. Which one you go for depends a lot on what occasion you're wearing them to. As will be proved later this week stripes are best for setting new records on your local helter skelter or perhaps a winter wedding or a trip to the theatre. Spotted mittens are better suited for long walks, parties or, at a push, when organising a coup d'etat against an aggressive foreign power.
ALWAYS wear long hoof mittens and feel free to join a few together to make them extra long if necessary.
Finally for finding suppliers of hoof mittens I'd suggest standing about with a large sign saying 'do you make hoof mittens' or even try knitting your own.

*Norma (still my best friend) got me an excellent selection of 'o's for Christmas. What's more they are microwaveable and dishwasher proof!
