A good boot scraper
An excellent cheap boot-scraper / cleaner for firm mud is a child's junior hacksaw, with the blade taken out. The end bit can get into the treads on the boot, and generally act as a precision mud-picker...
I discovered this by accident. I took the little saw up to the plot for lopping small branches on the back hedge, but the blade sprang off and vanished into hyperspace. Left with the shaped handle, I found an even better use for it.
