My name is Amber and I live with my husband Loui. We live 15minutes from Melbourne Airport on a 15 acre hobby farm. We have sheep, goats, horses, chickens and cats and dogs.
On weekends we are usually doing things outdoors around the property or attending horse shows.
We are a mere 7 minutes from the local large shopping centre and 35mins to the CBD.
We are a laid back young couple who enjoy the outdoors and all things related to animals.
Unfortunately we can only accept individuals at this stage.
