Let's go to the office with the team.


This is my office. There is some work standing in it.


Here is some more work.


This has been the latest work, like I really want to deal with the soap opera of the new feral cats. Scruffles is not a feral cat but apparently he has made friends with ALL of them, who are supposed to stay back in the feedroom and eat potential rats. I do not have time to deal with the cats at work. Can you tell the cats are driving me crazy? I don't really even like cats. But I like it when they eat the rats.


Maybe this is why I am so sensitive to dog agility apparel. Dog agility stuff is what I wear for hobby. It should be cool. Because look at what I wear to the office. Yes, it also involves a hair net. Sort of like a cafeteria lady, we all like our hair neat and tidy.



This is office wear too, shown in a ballerina pose. Not sure if cafeteria ladies wear these. Because we never see their legs, do we?


This is their office. Ruby is somewhere staring at feral cats.


This is only partway through my day. It was sunny in my office and I put on some more sun screen and ate a sandwich and was thinking how nice it would be to be all done with a mai tai and practicing some weave poles. How I thought I could squeeze picture taking into my day, I am not sure. I have a busy office.

This nice moment lasted like 2 seconds then there was some more work to ride and then at noon my lessons start and then I stand in dirt and sit on a fence or a brick wall made of plywood and sometimes pace and wave my arms, yelling and dragging heavy items around and up and down until about 6pm. Many hours of yelling non stop. Probably I have made someone cry. And I may have tied someone's legs onto something with a giant rubber band. And made someone get off their hobby and do some work then let them back on their hobby. Did I mention I do a LOT of yelling at the office? But I think I am pretty lucky to have this office. And when someone finally gets that lead change in the bad direction on their pony, then the whole day at work was all worth it.

My best friend did a lot of yelling and sometimes had tears with her customers at her office also. In my office they frown a lot if you yell(1st/2nd grade classroom). DARN! Sometimes those people need a good yelling at!

Boy, I wish I could do your work! I rode hunters/jumpers and miss it...and to think, you make a living off of it! You are one lucky person!

That is a great office. Not a cube farm, but a real farm!

I'm also very jealous. I rode as a kid and a bit as an adult and I would have loved to have been able to work with horses everyday. Plus do you know how many times a day I want to yell and send people to tears but can't because it would be unprofessional?
