    you can also try Emu feeding .--- feeding our Cattle is a fun and interesting thing to do . We have push bikes that you are welcome to use .-- Groom the horses - If you would like to spend time relaxing by the pool you are most welcome to do this .

    Information regarding help that we need -- You may find this type of help a little hard & dirty , if you have never worked outside before or if you have never actually had some sort of job , For most people the tasks are manageable . The Help needed is pulling weeds out of the soil .My 80 year mother can do it ;-)
    The weeds are pulled by hand and placed in a large bag , i will supply gardening gloves , you will need closed in shoes , the grass will be wet so shoes will also get wet . You may also will be asked to help paint the fences in a black paint . you will get paint on your clothes , So old cheap clothes that can be thrown away is advised .The help required may change if it rains ,
    Helping in the house yard garden , cleaning up garden pulling weeds . mowing lawn ,
    washing outside of house.
