    Description

    We are m62 and f59, we have part time jobs to earn money and a hobby to spend it. We have 7 draft horses, including the filly Frollein born April 3rd, 1 mule, several poultry, bees, cats, no dogs, a garden. We live in a cottage built 1837. No smoking. We live between the midland canal and the Stemweder Berg outside a little village with 482 locals. It´s not far to Bremen, Hannover, Bielefeld and Osnabrück, we can take you to the next railway station, if you want to visit them.
    However, from experience, there are things you should know for example:
    - We do not buy fashionable food that is coming from far away or veggies out of season (except once in a while)
    - We usually eat meat from our own animals or from farmers that we know and we don´t do this every day
    - We usually go to bed at 21:00, because most time we stand up early in the morning, of course you can sleep longer

    and of course: our horses are Rheinisch-Deutsche Kaltblüter, they are about 160-170cm and 700-980kg, they are well educated, but they are massive and powerful. They are our focus. Our cottage is not completely restored (here lives the chaos ;-)) and the garden is deserted....

    We have draft horses and need help with the horses. There are many projects around the stable. We live in an old farmhouse with also many projects and old farm maschinery including a Defender and a John Deere.
    Daily work: horse groom, muck out the stables, pasture care and fences, horse groom, poultry and garden care, sitting in the garden and watching the daily work of the bees...
