I got a horsey promotion!
Soooo if y'all don't know I work at a summer camp as a wrangler/barn staff. I basically help care for about 30 animals (horses, chickens, and goats), give basic riding lessons to campers, give trail rides, and do the usual camp counselor thing while being around horses for the WHOLE summer. It is the most amazing job I have ever had and I feel incredibly blessed. Now this winter my friend and the current barn manger graduated from college and got a full time big girl job, so when I went to go re-apply to camp my boss called and offered ME the position of barn manager!!!!
I am so excited you guys!!! It is a significant pay raise, I am in complete charge of the barn, and I get to help hire new wranglers!!! Every one of my non horsey friends that I tell laughs because they think it sounds like a silly position, but I just had to come on here and gush a little bit because I know you guys will understand why I am so excited!!!
I am sure that I will have tons of questions in the upcoming months as I transition from barn staff to barn manager, and I promise lots of pictures of our gumpy camp horses. They are not always the prettiest looking guys, but they are all reliable ;-)
