Sure hope so! Haha. I didn't get to practice like I wanted to today. My so-called boyfriend is doing good to piss me off.

All grooms that I know are skilled in first aid, including treating colic and suturing, are skilled in massage and myofascial release, can nicely trim hooves and reset shoes, repair tack, and are better than average riders. Most can do a fair job of schooling their horses, too. Some have small degrees in equine nutrition and other things like that.

Working at a big barn is a great opportunity, Stoddard. Congratulations.

Lovely OP I wouldn't put where you work on the internet... if you say something negative you could get fired or worse.

Just be careful..!

Uh... I know. No ntentions n saying anything ugly. I love my job, and if I **** up and get yelled at, it's my problem and I'll avoid slapping it on the internet. Bob is a respectable man, anyway. :)
