  • Description


    we, Nel(65) and Henk(65), have a dairy farm and horse stud/dressage stable, we look for volunteers who want to help us with the cows and /or the horses, you can make the choice between the two, or do both. Could be nice if you can ride. We have 6 grandchildren(between 0 -6 years old) who visit the farm regulary. And some schoolgirls out of the neighbourhood come in there sparetime and vacations. We live close to city, railwaystation, highway etc. and in the middle of a forest.
    We have about 70 dairycows en about 20 horses, some cats, a (wild)flower garden. We don't smoke. We had trainies from many countries.

    Our Province is very nice, with tourism, specially by bike, a lot of horse sport, nice climate. We do not visit a church, but their a many arround. We do not travel much, but have family and friends in France which we like to visit once in the two years for about 8 to 10 days. We go with our horses to Germany to show them. We like good and healthy food, like music. We like to understand animals and teach how to ride a horse like an Art, the horse should be a happy athlete. Henk likes agricultor machines, used to build everthing himself.
