    Good thoughts on this thread. Consider your horse business to just be a business. In 2008 DH and I began operating his small business, a Law Office. He has taken in an associate, who he has known for a decade, and she shares the space--we HAD a third desk, already--shares the rent, practices and they cover court for each other when there are conflicts. When the economy improves we intend to take advantage of working in a university town and hiring several college students for a minimum of hours, and one semester at at time. I don't care for trading off (working off all or part of board) bc I have found (over my 30 years) that I get less and the help gets more.
    What you should watch for is that your help thinks they can tell you how to do things. As was suggested earlier, having a turnover can alleviate this. If the help belives that the replacements are waiting for their job, they will behave better. Working at a stable isn't the same as cleaning up lavatories in a bus station. There is some glamor associated with it, deserved or not. Lucky for the OP, not ALL of the help is a problem.
