All of a sudden no one knows you. If you do this make it clear you have to be paid at the end of each day. Skip their excuses. Tell them if you pay is a day late, you'll come to work a day late. Sorry to sound so brutal but I've seen to many barn helpers get royally cheated.
Ohhh I know how that goes. I used to clean stalls when I was in middle school, and it was like pulling teeth to get the owner to pay me. I guess I'm a weird kid, but cleaning stalls to me is like retail therapy to city kids I guess haha..
