Where

The Good
Experience with any of the following are a definite plus: mechanic, CDL, any horse experience, barn keeping, grooming, riding or driving, wagon or carriage maintenance, foal watch, farrier work, veterinary medicine

On site shared bunkhouse with all utilities included, showers, A/C and heat. There is a separate building with a large fridge/freezer and a washer/dryer. A typical work day is 8 work hours long and five days/week. Pay starts at $15,000/yr., more commiserate with experience.

The Bad
The ranch is located down about 14 miles of miserable washboard road. Pretty much can't use it if it is raining. But then it doesn't rain all that often...

The Ugly
Absolutely no smoking since we are remote and the fire station is a long way off. Also No drinking or drugs allowed - as this is an equine facility anyone living here pretty much needs to be sharp since horses can decide to do the silliest things at the most inopportune hours!

Thank you!
