    Description

    I need an animal-lover who can stay and help with two puppies and two dogs and horses while I am at work and help cleaning stables etc. Contact me if you are interested.

    I love horses and am a vegetarian.
    Someone who can hack and tack a horse and lead it would be ideal. Riding experience is preferred as I don't have riding school type horses for beginners, but not a necessity. I don’t consider riding my horses part of your help but they are there if you are riders. My days off are Tuesdays and weekends those are my free days to play with my horses, explore, garden, play guitar, rest. It takes a week or so to get used to the horses and here so someone who wants to stay a month or longer is best for me. I prefer vegetarians or vegans, and horse lovers are a must. I have 2 small crazy terrier dogs, and 2 pups so you must like dogs too. Watching dogs is a big part of living in my home so if dogs annoy you please don’t apply!
    I work as a chiropractor Monday Wednesday Friday 11-7 and
    Thursday 2-8, and like workawayers to stay in with my dogs those days while I’m working. I'm flexible, not a slave driver, and do my best to help volunteers have fun here. I have even made a few life long friends from workaway.

    I am an American living the beautiful country life in Donegal. I settled here in 1996 so I am a bit Irish too!
    I live with my 2 dogs, 2 pups, 5 horses and 1 pony, in the countryside 2 miles from the town of Newtowncunningham, County Donegal. I am a 2 mile walk from the nearest bus. You can get buses from there to nearly anywhere. I offer vegetarian food only, no meat chicken or fish in my home please. I just don't like my kitchen smelling like dead animals. If you are ok with that you will most likely love it in my home.
    County Donegal is lovely and scenic with beautiful beaches. Donegal is a beautiful county to explore, Glenveigh Castle and The Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, and loads of beaches are within an hour-2 bus ride from my home in Newtowncunningham. Derry is only a short drive and is a nice city to visit too. Belfast is a train ride from Derry, very scenic.
    If you would like to help me drop me a line thanks.

    Thanks Victoria

    Help with animals, computer, cleaning, whatever...you can choose what you want to help out with, I am open to suggestions. I've gotten so much in return from workaways in the past I feel very lucky and open to suggestions. Horses can be dangerous, insurance is recommended. Im not a slave driver, I don't just do workaway to get free help. I love interacting with people from other countries and learning from them. I have hosted over 60 people from all over the world and love hearing their stories.
