The gloves are used by veterinarians and ranchers for preg checking cows or for helping with difficult deliveries.
It says right on their packaging: "The veterinarian's choice for sensitivity and strength."And who needs sensitivity and strength more than a Kansas farmer with a broken wrist attempting to plant wheat?
The gloves have gotten daily use at our house the past 2 1/2 weeks as cast covers. They are just the right shape for sliding over a cast prior to a shower.
Pretty ingenious. Yep, it was my idea. It's a whole lot easier than trying to figure out how to tape a garbage bag over said cast.
However, his cast looked like it could use a shower by the time we went to a follow-up appointment in Great Bend yesterday morning.
Dr. Hildebrand grew up on a farm not too far from here, so I probably didn't need to "tattle" on my hubby. But, nevertheless, Randy is back in purple after a brief reprieve for the X-ray. He contemplated switching to camouflage or to red and black for the Stafford Trojans. But, in the end, he went with purple so he'll be game-ready for the Sunflower Showdown this weekend.
He was in a purple cast when we beat OU. He didn't want to take any chances.
And for you marketing execs at Jorgensen Labs? When you start visiting orthopedic offices and selling your gloves, remember you heard it here first. You're welcome.
