Hello! I am Tina, I am married to Mark, we have one boy Thomas, who is 15yrs old and a little 6yr old girl called Emily. We own and live on a Farm in the countryside in County Wicklow which is in the southeast of Ireland, where we take care of Horses, we have 120 acres of land and most of it has horses on it.
I am a Natural Horse Trainer, and Mark is a software engineer. We are a happy go lucky family who likes to laugh. We also have a strong work ethic, so we try to take pride in what we do.
We live in a 5 bedroom house with a lot of space around us. We have 3 cats, 2 dogs and 8 hens. We do not smoke and would appreciate a Non-smoker if possible. I suffer with a bad back so i am limited as to what i can do, bending and lifting are a problem for me, so i need help with that.
Thomas is a mountain biking fanatic and loves working with farm machinery, Emily loves to sing and is a little comedian. Who ever crosses her path will have a good laugh. I adore horses so if you are a horse lover and have a basic knowledge that would be great. You would be more than welcome to ride horses when the time suits.
We are only 7 minutes from Wicklow town.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
They can certainly learn how an Irish family lives, and a lot of equine education.
My biggest thing that i need help with its house work, I suffer with a very bad back so hoovering, making beds anything that involves bending or lifting i struggle with. So it would be such a massive help if we had a volunteer that loves to do house work and would take pride in it. As we live on a farm the ground floor can carry in a lot of dust from outside. Then just a little bit of childminding for my little Emily.
5 bedroom detached house, with a very big garden which is situated on a 120 acre farm in a beautiful valley, in Co. Wicklow.
