  • Description

    Description

    I am recently widowed with my three children living nearby. I have 7 grandchildren and a small hobby farm with 5 ponies, 1 dog, 2 cats and a few chickens. I am involved with the local equestrian community with access to many riding and horse driving facilities. I live on 4 acres of land and in a rural area but still within 2 miles of town. I would like a female worker and someone outgoing. I require someone with horse experience.
