  • Description

    Description

    We are a Danish/Australian couple who have recently bought a small farm in the Adelaide Hills. We are looking for help making the place cozy with lots of projects as well as helping out with our horses if someone is interested.

    We have a small Jack Russell girl who LOVES attention. She would love some pats and playtime. Our two cats are the same, you will always have a friend ready to keep you company while staying here.

    We need help around our small farm that we recently purchased. This includes building, maintenance, new projects, general housework, caring for and training our quarter horse mare.

    We would love to have someone with horse experience help with groundwork and educate (ride) our green 8-year-old quarter horse mare. Someone with experience in horsemanship and western would be amazing. Mucking out stables, paddock maintenance (this includes removing trees and branches as well) and watering is also needed on a daily basis.

    We have a lot of building projects going on. As our house currently only has one toilet, it's on the list to add an additional one. We also need help with gardening - we want to make a big veggie garden and general landscaping to make the place look nice. Weeding and maintenance as well.

    Cooking, cleaning and general housework are also much needed. Someone with an interest in interior design to help make our house cozy would be great. If you enjoy baking or cooking - this would be much appreciated in our busy lives!

    Lone would like to learn photography, graphic design and creating professional videos so someone with these skills would also be very welcome.
