Subject: [LAN] Occupation circa 1881

I've just found my GGrandfather on the 1881 census of Horncastle Lincolnshire and need help to understand his occupation.
His occupation is listed as :Coach Woodman (Ors).
I understand the Coach Woodman as I know from my Grandmother that he built horse drawn carriages.
But what does "Ors" mean? Dropping the H from horse sounds too easy.
