  • Description


    Family of 4, children ages 11 & 6. Non smokers, enjoy sports, animals and the outdoors. We are involved with sports and hobbies that take us all over the province of Alberta. We live on a cattle and horse ranch in a rural setting. Both parents are university educated and striving to combine both urban activities with rural lifestyle. It's busy but fun around our place and we always seem to be going somewhere. There are always things that need fixing / carpentry or cattle and horses that require attention. We work outside in the elements and around animals all year round.

    Looking for someone who enjoys being outdoors and is capable of physical work. There are horses to ride if you are interested, kids that will want to play soccer and if you enjoy cooking at all that is a bonus! During the spring we are checking cattle, calving cows, feeding, fixing fence and during the summer there is moving cattle from pasture to pasture. Horses to work and sports events to attend.
