Hello out there. Beginning from Oktober 2019 until Mai 2020 I will I need a pet loving man/woman who would like to support me on my Finca in Andalusia. I prefer if people come to stay at least 3 months. Please do not apply for less then 3 months. There will be 7 horses , 7 cats, 3 dogs and a nice house, garden and stables to being looked after. I need help in the stables, the house and the outside area around the Finca. I am working with horses and people and if you are interested in learing more about horses you may be right at my place. I am though not offering riding my horses. It will only be about taking care of them. I am situated in a very big Finca (I am a part of a bigger Finca) where we breed arabian Horses and we are doing Oliveoil. We are a "Bio Olive Oil Plantation". The area where I live is a very beuatiful part of Spain. Beautiful countryside and the sea with great beaches is about an hour drive from here. So it is overall a nice place to be.

Help in the house
I am working intensly with horses. It is my daily work and maybe if there is an interest for learing more about these wonderful creatures, specifically how to interact with them in a strong but also soft way, might be an inspiring experience. Also our Finca is an interesting place overall. The main Finca (about 15 minutes walk away from my Finca) always has a lot of workaways stay with us. There are always nice, inspiring people around and the atmosphere is friendly. And we have a lot of animals. So liking animals probably would be good ;-) to feel comfortable here with us.
The work basically is to taking care of the animals such as feeding them and holding the area where the horses live clean. At present they are free and cleaning stables is very little work at this time of the year. There is always stuff to do in or around the house. During the day you will also have some good time to do whatever you feel like doing.

You will be living in a comfortable room. I have 2 houses. When there are no guests I like to accomodate you in one of the houses. So either you will have your own room or even a small house with your own bathroom. Food will be provided (whatever your preferences are, except for Alcohol and lots of meat) but you will have to cook for yourself.
Some more Details about the Finca. We are located very much in the countryside. Usually for getting out of the Terrain you need a lift with the car. The whole Area is 270 Hectar big. My Finca lies on the top of a Hill. It is a 15 minute walk away from the main Finca where we also have our cars located. During the summer and also during the winter extrem weather situations are to be taken into consideration as a challenge. This means extrem heat (summer) or extrem rain (winter). The houses are comfortable but simple. And the horses need to be taken care of no matter of circomstances.
I am always open to finding ways of doing things in a way that it serves and suits all of us. Of course I can arrange lifts to the Bus Station here if you want to travel a bit on your free days to see Spain. So my aim always is to have duty and free time well balanced and to have people around me who can take over responsibility for things to function well and also act self responsible. You are always welcome to watch me work with my horses or with clients and ask as many questions of interest which come up for you about horses.
