$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?
