I've Got Myself A Job....

Trimming goat hooves!! I posted an ad on CL yesterday and someone e-mailed me and said that they would like three Nubians feet trimmed. I'm charging $5 per trim or $3 for 3 or more goats. I wrote in the ad that people can bring them to me, we have a nice stanchion for trimming our own goat's hooves. Funny thing is, they live three miles down the road from us!! I'm saving this money I get from this small 'business' for our new horse. Just thought that I would let you all know that I am, as mom calls me, an 'euntrapanuer', LOL.

Haha, awesome!! Is it hard trimming their hooves? But that is very cool. I wish I had some odd job I could do around here for money, but I gotta drive into town for work instead. Have fun! And that's very cheap, you'll probably get a heap of people.

Sounds like an interesting job.

Congrats on it.

Thnaks guys.

I have someone else coming today :) I don't want to charge more, it is super easy for me to do, and it is just a little summer job. At least with trimming I should have repeat customers!

We used to trim our goats' hooves. If people don't know how to do it, they'll definitely do it for $5! Good luck with your business!

Thanks! I know that a lot of people don't know how, and vets charge $20 per goat in my area!

And with that cheap, you'll get even more! Hopefully, anyway. XD
Still going good?
