As the title, can anyone recommend any yard gloves, possible thermal (for cold mornings, like today) that I can also do all yard jobs with i.e. not too bulky!?

sealskinz winter riding gloves - they are expensive but totally worth it. I am on my third winter with mine and they are fab. I can break the ice in the water drink in the field, dunk my hand in to scoop out ice and still have a dry cosy hand!

I have looked on the web and they have loads, which exact ones do you mean?

I have several pair, I prefer the winter ladies riding glove. Although due to arthritis mine are now too tight :( so if you are interested in a 2nd hand pair let me know

I find sealskinz too tight and they make my hands painful and freezing cold due to cutting off the circulation i my hands.
The thing that works best for me is latex disposable gloves under cheap thin every day woolen gloves, you do need to have a few pairs and change them for a dry warm (straight of the radiator is possible) pair when they get wet.

I got some neoprene ones designed for shooting (little flaps to expose thumb and forefinger tips) from my Secret Santa which are brilliant. Previous I used cheap fleece ones from Tescos which are good but not a patch on the neoprene ones.

We buy cheap(ish!) leather gloves with thinsulate lining every year, great for doing jobs on the yard and usually last the winter, you do have to dry them if they get wet but it takes a bit to wet enough to soak through, then just dry, oil and wear again, been through all the sealskin range and other equestrian gloves but you end up paying for the brand and they never seem to be up to the job!
