  • Description


    Hello :)


    🌟Looking for one or two people that can babysit the farm approximately for 2 weeks while we are on vacation. We only accept people with horse experience for this!
    We leave the 25th of July but we would need you to arrive around a week earlier🌟

    We are a family of 6 Me (Jenny) 29yrs, Pontus 31yrs and our 4kids Christiano 10yrs, Kayden 5yrs, Zoey 4yrs old and little baby Jack who just turned 1yrs old.

    We would love to welcome you into our family and are looking for 1-2 volonteers that would love to work with horses aswell as babysitting. :)

    If your a horse lover and want to ride and take care of horses? :) Then this is the right place for you. We are looking for someone who wants to help us with the horses such as riding them, keeping them exercised, training the young horses as well as feeding them, taking them in and out, stable work etc. :) The tasks also depends alot on the season. We prefer if you have experience with horses! If you dont have experience we cannot promise that you will be working with the horses.

    Also babysitting would be appreciated at times when needed so we would prefer that you enjoy the company of small children with all there ups and downs.

    Other help is also needed around the farm such as outdoor help with the garden, fencing, grasscutting, painting and so on.
    Inside there is always some doghairs to chase and we would appreciate help keeping the house clean , picking up toys, cooking etc.
    We are also looking for someone who has good carpentry skills.

    Currently on the farm we have 8 horses, 5 dogs, 2 cats and 12 chickens and they all need lots of love everyday.

    Most important is that you are easy going,friendly, speak and understand English well, good company and have your own initiative. The day's vary alot and some are harder than others.
    No smokers❗
    We also prefer no vegetarians.

    The farm is located on the west coast of Sweden not far from Gothenburg.

    Hope to hear from you soon!
