    Description

    I love horses and am a vegetarian.

    I would like help cleaning stables feeding horses and with turn out. I have 2 mares shod and like to hack and ride in the arena with someone who can do that a few days a week. 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 few weeks or more is best for me. I prefer vegetarians or vegans, and horse lovers are a must. You may bring your dog if they are house trained.
    I prefer independent people who can take care of themselves and be trusted to look after my home and horses if I go away for a long weekend or to a course or on a holiday. Often I have more than 1 Workawayers if I’m planning to be away at all but occasionally you may be on your own a few days.

    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 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 there though 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.

    I like early horsey help my work days Monday Wednesday Friday around 8-8:30am then I head to work 10-10:30 and you can check the horses in the afternoons as it’s dark when I get home. I am a chiropractor for people and animals so maybe you will learn from me something too.
    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 work. 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.
