You'll be looking after our 2 pet donkeys ( about 1-2 hours a day). This includes feeding hay/straw twice a day( Morning and evening/afternoon), mucking out their barn and paddock,making sure they have everything they need, picking out hooves once a day and fill up their water bucket. depending on your level of experience you'll also take them on walks or hikes by yourself or with one of us or do some groundwork with them. This is not hard physical work and can easily be done within 1-2hours a day,but you need to be 100%RELIABLE, RESPONSIBLE and an animal lover with experience in equine care. Our donkeys are very tame, friendly and well trained but still require an experienced handler, as one of them is still young. They are much loved members of our family and we expect you to follow our instructions and treat them with love and respect.
You might also be asked to help with gardening and housework or things like painting a wall etc, but your Main Job will be looking after our longears.
We are happy to teach you some German, show you around the Area and give you advice on what to do/where to go.
