    really? Is it the state I live in? Or perhaps it is because my job pays under the table so I don't have proof of income.

    So you're not paying taxes on the money you earn? Yeah, that's a problem, as well as you not being able to provide proof of income. If you want a legitimate job, you need to learn to act legitimately in order to get the financial help colleges may offer. Otherwise, expect to never be able to get credit, buy a home, buy a new vehicle, have medical/dental insurance, or have life/long term disability insurance. Being paid under the table works for kids. For adults it's just a short, fast ride into poverty.

    Both of my parents were unemployed and my father had cancer .. I still got a pretty nifty $8000 student loan. Maybe Canada is different though.

    You want me to move away from my old grandpa who is miles no wherre and if he gets hurt he has no way to call 911? That would be selfish and he woud have no one to help him with the cattle horses goats and chickens. At least I live right down the road and I come help him everyday. And at least he pays me for it, if he didnt I would still do it for free because he needs help and no one else wants to help him. At least if I become a farrier ill have more work around here besides helping my grandpa.

    Not to mention, if you are going to pursue a career as a farrier you are going to be self-employed -- as such, you will need to start learning about filing your taxes as a self-employed person, how to report your profits and losses, paying your self-employment taxes, etc. You need to learn not only the technical side, as far as trimming, but also the business side.

    Working on his ranch is no reason that your income cannot be legally documented.

    Don't know about the states but where I am you're supposed to inform the gov. Of any money you make. Working on a ranch is still a job after all...
