    Description

    My name is Ann and I live on a small stud farm of 8 hectares with 6 mares of National Hunt breeding and three German Sheepdogs.
    My home is the house of animals. So any workawayer would need to like animals.

    My place is on the Blackwater, near a bus route and about 30 minutes from Cork city. There is plenty of public transport to famous spots like Killarney, West Cork or Dublin from Cork city.

    I'm looking for someone :

    - To handle mares and foals with myself and my vets
    - Who has a working knowledge of the English language
    - For general maintenace and chores (maintain stable, boxes, fields and fences...)
    - Gardening (mow the lawns...)
    - A current driving license with a clean record

    Volunteers must have some knowledge of English language and farming. You MUST have previous horse experience, and be able bodied and capable of lifting feed backs, hay bales, and using a pike/pitchfork and shovel. A spirit of initiative and a love of animals is a must.
