    Description

    We are both veterinarians and operate an equine and small animal veterinary clinic on our farm in Enderby BC. We have 6 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats and care of them and the farm is a full time job. We have two daughters 17 and 10 years old. We have a brand new house on our 55 acres and your accommodation will be a room downstairs with a shared bathroom.

    The area we live in is perfect for outdoor recreation including mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, fishing and swimming
    (1 km from our house is Gardom Lake where we have a property for swimming and kayaking.)

    We are always improving our property by building new trails for riding the horses and mountain bikes so you must like the outdoors and not be afraid of hard work outside. There will be some chores in the vet clinic but duties may also include helping with cooking and cleaning in the house. We love to meet new people and experience different cultures and languages. If you think you would like to help us out please contact us. We prefer one person at a time.
