I don't own a barn but I do my board my horse. My BO recently hired a down-on-his luck 20yr old guy to bring in the horses and feed a night (4 months ago). It took him awhile to learn, and at first we were sure it wouldn't work out, but then he started to catch on.
He is truly an asset to our barn, and has become a part of our "family". He's learning how to ride, really loves, respects and cares for the horses, and takes care of most of the maintenance too.
I guess what I'm saying is, if you find someone willing to take a chance on you, it could be the best experience of your life.
