  • Description


    my name is Fran and i am a senior lady who has a 50 acre scenic farm very close to the little towns of Midland and Penetanguishene,both nestled in bays on Georgian Bay..The area is mostly for cottagers and tourists as it is about 1,1/2 hours north of Toronto via the 400 highway..Thousands of people come up here in all seasons to enjoy the fresh air and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
    i am retired from teaching school and keep myself very busy here with doing hay,chores,gardening,fencing,and taking care of five paso fino horses. I have had horses all my life and finally decided that the gaited paso fino horse was the best horse in the whole world.
    i used to do breeding here with my stallion and some mares but unfortunately the horse business has slowed I am down to five..i used to do Bed and Breakfast with horses and would like to go back into it but I need some help...
    in the winter it is beautiful here..there is skiing and skidooing close by and the property has lots of trails for house has a nice woodstove which keeps the room in the basement very warm..i am a good cook and enjoy main work in the winter is blowing snow with my tractor and feeding and taking care of the horses..i can speak and understand quite a bit of german and the same with parents were from Vienna and I have a great love of music. i play the keyboards..and i also would like to paint it would be very nice to have someone to help to give me some time to do the things I have not been able to do...I would welcome two people here to help and to enjoy their company..
