  14. Horse Boarding
    I currently shareboard two horses at one barn outside Chicago. However, my barn is expensive and just downright annoying. They say they clean the horses' buckets daily, and clean out stalls 2x and day, and they don't. They say they feed the horses 3x per day, they get only one feeding. You want...

    I've been asking around, emailing, calling, etc, trying to find a job in a stable of some sort. Should it pay off, and I score an interview, what would be appropriate to wear?
