  • Description


    We have a house in the countryside and need help looking after the animals we have in our fields. You can learn a bit about animals such as sheep and a few cows and goats. We are located in a beautiful house surrounded by nature and will need a bit of help with looking after the field next to the house.
    Most of the work is fixing posts and the fencing - so a little bit physical.

    Can you help us with teaching us farrier skills. We want to learn more about horses.

    So at our house you can speak or learn Spanish and English and can also speak in Portuguese.
    We will show you how to shear sheep. You can learn to take care of cows and horses, like moving them from to field to field and their daily habits.
    Look after the chickens and goats too.

    We would like to learn how to be a farrier with horses so we can pass this on in our future homesteadstays.

    We have a relaxed vibe in the house and we would love you to join us. We don't have timed dinners or meals as each day is different. You are free to come and go as you like.

    Looking for a peaceful location to relax, work digitally or study then this is the location for you.

    We have sheep, goats, horses and cows. Basically we need some help with the fields - cleaning, cutting back hedges and ferns (as they have gone a bit wild with the rain) and making sure they are closed properly with the fencing as they are a bit old and rotten now. As well as ensuring the animals have water and the right food. We will show you how to do everything - but some autonomy is needed too please.

    You can show us farrier skills too please.
    We really want to know more about horses.

    If time permits then some general maintenance about the house and the traditional horreo and it´s gardens would help us too-but the priority is our small number of animals - well precisely their fields.

    You get accommodation included. Comfortable, clean with all the amenities.
    Double or single room with bed and plenty of room.

    You will be staying with a couple (Spanish and English)
