    Description
    We are family of four, and we live in north west Iceland. We have about 800 sheeps, 80 cattles, 80 horses and 2 dogs.
    We need help with feeding the sheeps and cattles and other things that need to be done in our farm.
    In May all our sheeps will have lambs so it will be really busy month.
    We live in Skagafjordur, close to Drangey, Fosslaug, Tindastóll and other beautiful places here in north Iceland.
