After holding these high responsibilities for a time, I was allowed to excercise some of the horses and then I was taught how to halter break the foals. Around this time I was given a big raise to $3.00 a day. Yeah, that's $3 per day.
It was hard work. I still loved every minute of it. It kept a 14 year old kid busy and created wonderful memories and fabulous opportunities. We'll talk about those another day.
Amy Coffin's series, 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History is a series of blogging prompts that "invite genealogists and others to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants."
