We are a family of four; mom, dad and two boys. Our children are now 12 and 9; they love hockey and soccer and the great outdoors! As both my husband and I are self employed we are busy, busy, busy. We are always looking for workawayers that enjoy the outdoors and come with a skill set that involves outdoor skills; driving tractor, lawn mower, fixing fences, painting, gardening, and happy to hang out and play with our boys while we are at work!
We have lots of fun stuff to do in our area; horses to ride, ATV to ride, motorbikes, outdoor sports (soccer/basketball). As I own and work in a vet clinic we are also looking for veterinary students and externs who are looking to improve their knowledge and skills. If you have great horse experience; we are busiest at the vet clinic from April to October with horses; I also ride, take clinics and compete in Eventing during this time as well.
