We are located in the south west of Western Australia on a 85acre hobby farm inland from Bunbury (approx 50mins). Tiffany (35) & myself (Brett 41) both work part time but have a passion for horses & farming. (we both look after our toddler Ryley on separate days)
We have 8 horses which range from racehorses on spell, race horses in work, an eventer and some other retired horses...Tiffany uses her horses for eventing and showjumping and Brett has a hobby trainer licence and has a few horses in race work.
The farm also has about 5 cows and 3 calves.
The property is very pretty, with green rolling hills, a small creek running through the center. There is native forrest across the road and is close to a large water skiing dam and also to some scenic areas in the Wellington National Park (near Collie - 20 mins away).
There is a large A-frame house on the property, which is surrounded by a large expanse of gardens.

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Mumballup is a small locality, there is a pub and farms in the area. Brett and I are down to earth People, and live a very typical relaxed Australian way of life. The area has lots of natural beauty, and great for exploring.
We have a large property and both work full time, and in addition have our horse hobbies, therefore we have heaps of projects around the farm that we'd love to get around to.
Work that we are interested in getting help with includes;
*️️️️Helping Tiffany in the house as she is home with a newbirn baby.
*️️️️️️️️️️ Feeding horses
*️️️️️️️️️️ Cleaning out horse yards
*️️️️️️️️️️ Horse work, including lunging horses, wading horses in the water, putting rugs on and off (possibility, depending on experience)
*️️️️️️️️️️ General Farm Maintance
Horse experience is not neccessary, but is a bonus if you have an interest in horses, and feel comfortable arou d them.
We have recently had a new baby, so some help around the house would be much appreciated!
