Area: EnglandWe are a working farm with 2500 sheep set in the rural country side of Cheshire. We breed & show American miniature horses, we hold childrens (my little pony parties) and have 2 riding ponies who we use for childrens riding lessons. We are in the middle of lambing 650 ewes on the farm. We have a farm house and need help in the house and on the farm. The Farm although rural is in easy access of surrounding towns and villages. Poynton, wilmslow, Alderly Edge, Macclesfield not far from manchester and the trafford centre and has local train stations, shops, supermarkets, cinema, bowling and many other attractions. there are lots of amazing restaurants and take aways for great dining. or we have good old fashioned home cooked food here on the farm. we are looking for some one who could help in the house and on the farm with the horses and stables and the Pony Parties.. we have 3 gorgeous little jack Russell's Gem Gem Lulu and Fefe. If this is for you We would love to hear from you.
Area: SaskatchewanWe are now fully booked at our ranch for the summer (until beginning of October) but sometimes a space does open up so it may still be worth asking if you would really like to come. We have a ranch with 70 beef cows and their calves, several horses, a donkey, a goat, two sheep, two llamas and numerous cats and dogs. In winter you can help us feed and check on the animals and spring is our calving season. In summer you can help us with hauling the hay bales (round bales) from the field to the home yard (using tractors and bale wagons), check & mend fences, vaccinate calves & do other veterinary work. Also help train the younger horses. In the fall we bring the cows home from the summer pasture to the yard where they are fed hay daily. We also would like you to help with general household duties as part of our family. Lots of opportunities to ride horses (either english or western, if you would like to learn to ride, I (Marilyn) could teach you to ride in a safe environment) fishing, canoeing, pick berries, and watch abundant wild-life – elk, deer, coyote, & fox. We have fishing equipment and a boat. Two generations of families live on the farm yard and you will be part of our family. There may be opportunities to go on trail rides of several days. If you are mechanically inclined we have a heated well equipped farm shop and we always have machinery which needs maintenance and repairs. An International driver’s license would be an asset. We have a vehicle for you to explore the area. I am just learning to use the computer, so any help would be well appreciated. Sincerely Marilyn
Area: Western Australia****G'day folks, I'm afraid we are soon to be going travelling ourselves. As such, we are unable to accommodate guests for the period of 1 May 14 - 30 Jun 14 inclusive. In a couple of weeks we will be pulling our profile offline, but hope to possibly be active after returning in June. All the best. Sam and Ange.************* Who are we? We're an early-thirties open-minded couple living in a typical Australian home (3 bedroom, one bathroom, 1960s house on a quarter acre block, with a pair of friendly labradors). What we can offer? A great start location for your exploration of Western Australia! Just walk or take a short taxi ride from Perth International Airport to the house. The house itself is ten minutes drive/ 30 mins bus from the center of Perth. It is a short distance from Belmont mall/shopping centre and walking distance to the Swan river. What we request in return? All we ask for is honesty, cleanliness, and a willingness to help. We consider you as our guests. We are not in the business of exploiting others or being exploited. We ask that you treat the house and the occupants (including the dogs) with respect, clean up after yourselves, and put in 100% when there is work to be done. Most importantly, have fun. We have a long and solid history hosting guests (both local and foreign) at the house. We always enjoy ourselves and hope you will too.
Area: ThuringiaWe are a young married couple. Sarah is 24 and Timo 33 years old. We live in an old and kind of crazy house in Erfurt-Möbisburg, which is 15 minutes by bus from Erfurt City Center. With us lives also our 5-year old dog mix called Sturmi. Our house has a small garden, which we want to make a bit nicer in the future. Although Möbisburg is so close to Erfurt it has a beautiful scenery and a lot of nature. We enjoy being outdoor and have fun with our dog and our small mini-pony Egon just somewhere in the forest or in the fields. While staying with us you can explore Thuringian cities (there are a couple of cheap train connections), explore the nature in Möbisburg itself, go hiking with us and the pets or just relax and fill up your batteries.
Area: near TortosaWe have had some wonderful workaways who came as visitors and left as friends, we have a very beautiful small horse farm in Xerta, about 2 hrs south of Barcelona and there are regular buses and trains to everywhere and we offer use of bicycles ! We have rare paso fino horses, and they are charming and there is a chance to learn natural horsemanship and do a wide variety of duties although a fair portion of it is mucky work, literally cleaning up muck ! the countryside is gorgeous and we are right next to wonderful fishing and we offer a big light apartment and we have other workaways with us and we hope we take good care of them. We speak mainly English, with some smattering of Spanish, and we love meeting new workaways and sharing ideas. we would love to hear from you - thank you
