Career: Retired and now just taking care of 2 horses, 1 dog and my own small farm.
I used to do Quality Assurance auditing of a Toxicology, Biochemistry, Environmental, and Analytical Laboratories. I'd audit the studies as they were being performed to make certain protocols and standard operating procedures were being followed and I'd review the reports to make certain that the data were reported correctly.
I have 2 horses at home and between mowing fields, cleaning stalls, grooming, laundry, cleaning house (UGH), and cooking, as well as gardening I manage to find a few minutes to get on COTH.
Sometimes you have to burn a few bridges to keep the crazies from following you!
I am a Project Manager for an Organic health food manufacturer.
I have my own 5 acre farm with 3 horses, 7 cats, 1 dog and 1 pesky racoon that thinks that it lives with us
We had an inspector come in to our plant one day and as soon as we each realized that we were both horse people we were talking non-stop. She told me that the greatest thing that her parents did for her was to insist that she get a "regular" job not related to horses. She lives around the corner from me and has a magnificant place with a huge indoor arena. She is not married and can support herself fine.

I'm in software sales right in the heart of Silicon Valley and I currently board my horse in a full care training facility and my mule for now gets to play in a big pasture.
I loff where I live and am not willing to give up this area just yet in order to have my horses at home. I'm very fortunate to have wonderful pasture boarding within 20 minutes of my home as well as miles and miles of trails to ride!
Never quite sure how to describe my job. Run a specific technology application for a Fortune 100 company, although am absolutely not a techy person. Work 100% from home with no travel and went to the office for the 1st time in 4 years last week! Have my own little farm with 23 acres with 2 horses + 1 neighbor horse + 1 foster. Can't imagine working in an office again. Can't imagine working full time with horses either!
