Carolyn's thing is horses and last semester Carolyn had opportunity to really "do her own thing." She had an "unusual" job - unusual in the sense that it is not the typical job for most college girls. Carolyn worked at Horse Fair Riding Stables, headquarters for the Columbia College Horsemanship program, as a "horse nurse." She had the complete responsibility for five horses assigned to her. She brushed them, cleaned their hoofs, fed and watered them in addition to giving them any special medication, exercise or care they needed. She also helped with horse shows, and had the opportunity to instruct a few children's beginning riding classes. Her job as "horse nurse" was designed as a 4-hour, 7-day a week job. However, of greater concern was carying for the horses properly, if she could do a satisfactory job in less than four hours, she was still paid for four hours. Three girls usually work as "horse nurses" at Horse Fair. They are not always Columbia College girls. Carolyn worked with two girls from the University of Missouri, one a veterinary student. A member of H. F. & Co., the Columbia College riding club. She has ridden in college horse shows and has gone with participants to shows in Kansas City and St. Louis. She went to the American Royal and the B & B shows. Cartoyn is Vot working as a horse nurse this semester because of her heavy course load - 20 hours. After getting her Associate of Arts degree in June, she would like to work with animals, although the past two summers she has spent in the ready- to-wear department of Graham's Department Store in Algona. Although Carolyn does not board her horse, Sunny, at the college, Columbia College students can bring their horses to college with them and board them at the Horse Fair. The Horse Fair, owned by Deborah Booker, is located two miles from .Columbia city limits.
