Top 18 New Year's Resolutions for Grooms!

Enjoy!!  And please add your own to this list!


 1.  I will finally master “hurry up and wait”.

 2.  I will not secretly plot revenge on the riders when they arrive late, change horses at the last minute, or forget that Grooms need to sleep.

3.  I will figure out a way to do 49 things at once instead of the usual 48.

4.  I will actually sit down to eat lunch.  Every day.  

5.  I will train the horses to refrain from pooping the second I leave their stall after cleaning it.

6.  I will figure out the perfect outfit to wear to work that prevents all footing, bedding, and teenie tiny hay bits from getting into my shoes and/or bra.

7.  I will stand up for myself when it comes to being paid legally, having worker’s comp insurance, and having all of the rights that come along with being a legal employee.

8.  I will invent the self cleaning bridle. 

9.  I will work smarter, not harder, in order to have some semblance of a social life. 


10.  I will continue to go above and beyond in my daily duties as long as I don’t become a martyr and allow anyone to take advantage of me.  

11.  My day off will be used to partake in the things that I love to do - horses or otherwise.  I will not be sucked back into the barn on this most precious of days.

12.  Barn drama will avoid me at all cost. 

13.  I will think of many many topics for Liv of to write about because I know that she sometimes runs out of ideas and is forced to write boring and not funny articles.  

14.  I will learn to read the minds of my riders.  (As we can all agree, we already know how to read the minds of our horses.)

15.  I will become BFF’s with the Vet and the Farrier so that my knowledge base gets even bigger.

16.  I will convince that one weirdo horse that the clippers will not, in fact, eat him alive.  

17.  I will start a new exercise craze, called “hay stack your way to a buff bod”.  

18.  The creation of the greatest white board organizational barn chart will happen and I will patent the design.
