    Description

    I work running a cattle ranch west of Williams lake. I am a fully time single father and would love help with homeschooling, and general stuff around the ranch. There are 12 horses, 300 cows and soon I will have chickens too! It would be a great chance to explore this truly beautiful area.

    This was a recent Facebook Post of mine,
    I have learned so many things.. Maybe you might be interested in some of these :)
