    We have two boot jacks, which help remove boots. One, pictured here, is for our wellies. We also have one in the closet for our dress boots (yes, in Texas there are work boots and dress boots!).

    We do!! It's ideal when you have buddy boots.

    I have one around here somewhere. It was my 8th grade shop class project!

    My Dad made a couple of these. He injured his back on the job and had trouble taking off both boots and shoes. The circle T brand is my grandfather's brand (I also have the branding iron) from his cattle raising days.

    It's about 18" long and about 6" tall.
