My name is Ilona Chodnicka and I'm a software engineer. Senior. No, really.
I've written modem software for CDMA mobile phones at Qualcomm Inc for 12 years. Then I had me my midlife crisis, ditched my software engineering career and decided to be a horseshoer. I even went to a farrier school to learn how to do it. Instead, I have learnt very quickly that I could not even shape a keg shoe if my life depended on it, so so much for horseshoeing ... But I could trim feet! And people complimented me on it! So here I am, proud owner of brand new small business at the ripe age of, ahem, yeah.
And I am serious about it. I am currently enrolled in Equine Sciences Academy, pursuing Associate Degree in Equine Science + Hoof Care Certification ( http://www.equinesciencesacademy.com/esa_00006b.htm )
My background is working with rescue horses (I'm executive secretary of a 501 (c)(3) horse rescue in Ramona) and all sorts of backyard critters. I've handled so far anything from a dwarf mini, BLM burros & mustangs (gentled, but 'not quite there' yet), mules, unruly "children" that tried very hard but had oh, about 20 sec attention span, old farts with arthritis so bad that they could barely lift their legs and spirited "overachievers" that volunteered the wrong foot once they had it explained -- with a cookie -- what it is that I want to do with their leg and that hoof cradle ...
I'll take all the time needed as long as the horse and the owner both work with me.
