    HELP NEEDED FOR November through the new year 2019/2020. Strong man/woman though the winter months

    Hi! We are looking for someone to help out on a small horse farm for a few weeks. Cathy, the owner of the farm, has broken her foot a while back (it is healing slowly) so we need help Through the winter months
    Jim her husband passed last winter. Winter here can be pretty cold and lots of snow. True Canadian Winter ❄️
    We have four horses, a pony, three dogs and a couple goats and cats. Help would include looking after the animals.

    The farm is located in the beautiful Madawaska Valley, Ontario. Closest town is Madawaska, just outside of Algonquin Provincial Park.

    Workers will get their own room in a farm house with a gorgeous view/ laundry and all modern amenities.

    Smokers welcome!
    Thanks
    Sherry
