    Description

    Hello out there. I will I need a pet loving man/woman who would like to support me on my Finca in Andalusia beginning around the 10th of Dec. until the 27th of Dec. 2019. There will be 8 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".

    There is one thing though which I need to mention: I am looking for somebody who is on his/her path of turning the attention inside the own self. It means that the outer world starts to loose more and more focus and the focus goes more into the own inner world, where, if we begin to bring the focus there, some things need to be "cleaned" or "cleared" out. My home actually is a place where I have made the experience that stuff comes up....we call my place "the island", joking about this aspect which causes people who are "not" embracing their Processes (also the inconvenient ones) some troubles up here and then I also am in trouble, as I am not into small talk or "talking" yourself out of feeling what is present. So if somebody reads this and thinks, perfect, just how I like it, please come and stay. If you read this and think....oh my God, this is certainly not for me, perfect too ;-)....not everybody resonates with everybody.

    But if we resonate, I am sure we will have a great time together.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.

    Accommodation

    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.
