  • Description


    We are Michaela and Stephan and we have two children, 20 and 23 years old. Aaron live in Hannover and at weekend he is comeing home and Maxine is the most of time at home after work. We live in a little village in the middle of Hanover and Hamburg on a little farm. We have two dogs, two cats and 25 icelandic horses. We have a big garden with several buildings which have to be repaired, the horses have to be care after every day and a lot of gardening has to be done. We also have to build fenses for the paddocks and maybe the horses can be ridden if you like and can. We have a big house and we would like some help cleaning it.
    We love horses, we love to cook but we don´t have time for it, my daughter love to bake and to eat togehter when all the people of the family are at home. We would love to share recipes and we would like to learn something about food in other cultures. We would like to learn English and we are willing to teach German.
    Stephan is a ferrier and if you like you can accompany him to work with him and to learn more about horses and shoeing.
    Michaela is a physiotherapist and she would be open to exchange experience in this sector.
    The location of our farm is very attractive, on the one hand it is very rural and idyllic and on the others hand interesting big cities like Hanover, Hamburg and the capital Berlin are within easy reach by train. A Driver´s licence is advantageous.
