We are Ernest and Martina, 50 and 43 years old. We live on a farm in lower Austria. Our sons are 20, 18 and 8 years old. Animals on our farm: 4 Border Collies, 1 cat, sheep, 2 donkeys, chicken, mice :-) We love our animals but they are a lot of work, so we can need help around our farm and also in the household.
We have racka sheep wich is a rare breed. And we love to train our Border Collies on these sheep. Training dogs is our passion. The Border Collies are also trained as rescue dogs so we are part of a rescue organisation. If you love animals, especially dogs - we are really the right place for you :-)
