i work with my fiance managing the phone, doing copies and taking orders for business cards, web design, t-shirts.. any orders really. And since we're still new, we don't have too many people in at once, so i'm on here basically the whole day. I work from 10-6 but we always stay later til about 9 sometimes.

but i do get to leave during the day to visit the horses, so that's rather nice.

before i was working with Tom, well even before we started dating/got engaged, i was working at a dog kennel. I loved working with my previous boss, but she sold it to these other people and while they did a lovely job on the place, the people were real snobs and such. The 2 bosses went on vacation and i was like the next person in charge, but i started my shift at 12, and one day when i came in, the owner's wife said that they didn't need me that day, and basically fired me on the spot. She had no right doing it, but whatever. I'm over it now, but it just annoys me how she did it.

hmm maybe i'm not over it. Oh well. I got a better job and i don't have to clean up doggie doo anymore

I work at a pig farm (18-20k head). It's gross, but interesting work (castrating,tagging,reaching,vaccinating, etc...) It was a huge shock to me, as I was uneasy about excepting the job because of the whole "animal rights" issues, but absolutely love it, and due to the extreme labor shortage, its easy to advance. Its shift work, 10days on, 4 off. I also break/flip horses on the side, but that pretty much just pays for itself, and about $200 extra.

I train horses (trying to get out of doing it for other people), I work at a clothing store 3 days a week and I breed, raise and train my own quarter horses.

My husband is a pipeliner and a helicopter pilot.

what we do for a liveing

I am retired on disablity and we operate a small rescue stable , and i buy and sell new and used tack here at the ranch and on ebay as well. My wife NIKI works full time for a company 30 miles from home and i also am the Daddy to HANNAH 5 and christian 7 which is about as tough a job as working horses, i also gentle horses for my self as well as local riders . which i have been doing for a long long time hence the reason for gentling a horse over the old ways of brecking them since they put me in retirement from brecking horses i now gentle them then anyone can ride them and further there training and it is a lot less painfull and i eat a lot less real estate in the process Dave

I am the Purchasing Agent (manager) and Inventory Control Manager for a outdoor point of purchase sign manufacturing company.

Boring stuff. But at least I have my own office and during downtime I check out the internet websites. :)
