  • Help


    - working with donkeys and for donkeys maintenance: feed the donkey in the mornings and evenings (it's a very beautiful job, you just simply make the animals happy while learning the perfect technique how to move hay :)), help with cleaning the barn (perfect physical exercise), assist to shepherd the donkey to the fields and back, helping with tasks around milking
    - helping with building site
    - give food for cats and dogs (simple but nice job:)). Cats stay outside and don't like caresses but are beautiful and always around:)
    - Spend time with our 7 years old daughter who is very friendly and open.
