    We hope you can take care of horses and you know horseback riding You can ride the horses together with me on the forest tracks near by and further away.During the summer month I am used to ride the horses early in the morning.
    You like it to work in the vegetable garden and to stack firewood we need help in the beginning of the summer. For the April and May we would need someone who knows to use an ax to help Matti to make firewood. If you know to speak a little bit German it would be great.
