Wellies & Worms

HUNTER WELLIES FUN FACTS Oxford and Cambridge boat crews all wear Hunters before and after the race: Oxford in blue boots; Cambridge in green. OXFORD VS. VS. CAMBRIDGE The biggest Hunter ever made was a size 18 for a Derbyshire vet. -SIZE 18!–> It takes a gallon of custard to fill a size 10 Hunter. Well into the 20th Century, rubber was more valuable than silver. Many rubberists ascribe aphrodisiac powers to its pungent smell, now available as a bottled scent from Parisian perfumer Jean Guton!! A Cumbrian farmer's pig ate her Hunters and didn't even suffer indigestion. Some people love their wellies so much that they give each pair a name and even have a 'Welly Naming Ceremony'. In 1974, Scottish comedian/actor Billy Connolly adopted a comical ode to the boot called 'The VWelly Boot Song'. Paddington Bear started wearing his red wellies in 1972 when the first soft toys of the character were produced. The Scotch Malt Whisky Society describes its cask number 41.29 as "the colour of golden syrup with the scent of the inside of a welly boot"." WHISKEY A Yorkshire farmer requested a plastic buckle for his Hunters - the rattling kept waking up his wife as he got undressed for bed. HHHSSSSS The boot has also given its name to the welly boot dance performed by miners in Africa to keep their spirits up whilst working. Hunter even made boots for cows! In the early 90's Hunter made the Hobble Boot which was a boot specially designed for cows. source: http://wWW.hunter-boot.cOM/FUN-facts bRo WELLIES AND WORMS Outdoor and Travel Gear for Life's Little Explorers
