    Honestly, without having anything documented you're NOT going to be able to do anything with your life. You wont be able to take out loans, wont be able to buy a house or a car, heck when you go to get a real job they might not give it to you because nothing has been documented. What experience do you have? NONE according to them.

    You're 20 now, maybe it's time to grow up and start your own life.
    I find this a lil harsh. I have a family of four, a house, and too many vehicles. Not to mention toys and horses. I'm not rich or claim to be. But some people just aren't the type (myself included) to do everything the way society expects. Sometimes an honest living is just that. You live honestly, don't need much, and are happy.

    I don't think you're being very realistic, but if you don't want to listen to any of that...
    Do you plan on doing your taxes when the ranch is yours? If not, that's stealing.
    well ya! Im trying to find out how to file them for this march! And a lot of things can happen sure doesnt mean I shouldnt continue my life, anyone can loose their job, anyones truck can break down and they might not have the money to fix it! Why do you thing im trying to go to college? I wouldnt go to college just for some dumb reason!!!!! I want to go SO that I CAN have what I need in life instead of living on the street like my brother!

    Lol exactly! I love my life, I would love a better education so that I can manage things better. Out on the ranch with my family and horses and WAYYYYY to many chevys(i think I have 6 or 7 right now) and I grow my own food, have my own beef and chickens, and I love living this way but I need a better income source which is why I want to be a farrier.

    $5000 isn't a lot for something that will give you a job for the rest of YOUR LIFE!! I'm currently paying
    $15,000 A SEMESTER for nursing school. I'm going to rack up about $100,000 of school debt. Sure, its setting me back and I'm going to work my butt off to pay for it, but this is for the rest of my life! Oh, ps, my mother isn't rich. She's a single mother of two and works for ups. Our father was a deadbeat. Still at the age of 24 I live at home and share a room with my sister... Just goes to show college isn't for "rich people".

    Pick up extra hours, get a weekend job in town at another ranch, baby sit, dog walk, train horses... Anything. Save the money, pay cash and GO!

    Also, you might think there is a need for a farrier but think, if there hasn't been one in so long. I'm sure people by now have gotten good at triming their own horses feet. Now why are they going to pay you $25-75+ a head to trim their horses if they can do it themselves?

Because if he makes money on his farm that makes some or all of his social security taxable. This is tax fraud, plain and simple.

    You need to take a basic accounting class. Not a reading forms class. I'm sure you can find one to take online that's cheap.
    ok, and grandpa filed taxes until his wife died a few years ago, and I would gladly do it for him if I knew how.

    Maybe it was a bit harsh, but I still stand by what I say. It's dishonest to not do your taxes, her grandfather isn't living honestly if he gets handouts and still wont record his income, she's not learning to live honestly and IMO she needs to learn how to do these things. In the event of an emergency, if you haven't got cash and you NEED money, but you have no financial records, how are you going to get that help? Aside from begging friends and family, you're not. You can live with little and be happy, but you should still do your taxes, and make sure you DO have enough to live off of.

    dont worry im working on that. Actually people just don't do it, honestly, I had a neighbor bring a horse to me a few months ago it was BAD. And had me do them for $20. I know how, id just like to be better as I don't want to do something wrong. There are 16 horses down the road that need their feet done and several oter ranches around that bring farriers from far away, and even a lady that hauls her horses in, she hass me do work for her to and she thinks it would be a GREAT idea for me to learn how.

    Well ya I know im supposed to do taxes, its not like im avioding them on purpose. I tried to file when I was 16 before I worked for grandpa but I had only made 3,000 that year and that is below the amount you have to make to pay taxes.

    Nothing just trying to find a school in the area, basically north cali, but the closest college for farriers(That I found)is in sacramento and that's just to far, one in fort bragg would be okay as I have uncles over there. I would like one where I can come home on weekends to help/check on grandpa.
