    Description

    We are a rural farm in NSW QLD with cattle, poultry in beautiful countryside

    Hello everybody,

    we are a rural horsefarm on six hundred acre directly in the hills along the border of NSW and QLD in the beautiful Killarney area. We are all about horses, as we are an Australian stock horse stud and training establishment with over 30 years of experience. But we are also just normal everyday people having a talk and a coffee at the porch, visiting town or enjoying dinner (Phil’s fantastic chicken soup) in front of the TV – with other words:

    The farm with its daily tasks is no doubt demanding, but we try to keep it unstressed and easygoing. 🙂

    Since we have next to the hoses a lot of beef cattle, chicken, ducks and guineafowl, there is always something to do. If this is not related to animals, then with everything that surrounds them and where equally have to been taken care of. Therefore a helping hand is always welcomed.

    ________ 🏇 ________
    Cheers and see ya soon,
    Phil & John
