    Looking for help in 2020..

    Because of the Covid 19 pandemic I am looking for help, preferably someone that can stay longer (as it takes a little while for the dogs to get used to new people). It would be nice to find someone already in Canada.
    I recently had a heart attack and I'm looking for help for 2020.
    I have litters of puppies that I need help with plus chores and some maintenance.
    I own and operate a hobby farm, I have horses and I also raise dogs, cows, and chickens.
    We are located in Niton Junction, which is located one and a half hours west of Edmonton. Niton Junction is a small but active farming community.
    Horses have always been a big part of my life. I have been raising quality Quarter horses since 2004, I've decided to downsize and keep just a handful for riding. I will still breed a couple over the next year or two. My love of animals made me decide to start raising American Akitas, we have been doing this since 2008. I also decided that I would start raising chickens for their eggs, and I sell chicks. In the summer, I plant a garden for fresh produce.
    I am a very sociable person and while here you will get to meet many of my neighbors. I have a second trailer (home) that is being rented out.
    The farm is 160 acres of land and consists of a shop, two mobile homes, a bunk house, a couple of sheds, a couple of chicken coops, dog kennels, a round pen and corals.
    I am a smoker, trying to quit.

    The basic chores (feeding the dogs, chickens, calves, foals and horses).
    Some of the expected duties that you may be asked to do may include but are not limited to: help feed the horses, dogs, calves or chickens. Cleaning pens, shoveling snow or raking leaves, mowing the lawn, exercising and brushing the dogs, working with younger horses, help with foaling or calving, assist with halter training the foals, help with the horses while they are being trimmed or doctored. ,exercising horses, some farm maintenance (ex. fencing, gardening, general cleaning) and some house hold duties. Depending on the date of your stay you will be shown how to operate the quad, tractor, and pickup truck. Knowledge of horses or cows would be an asset.
    Foaling or calving can start any where for April until June. During this time, I will need help with the mares and foals and will have started foal watch.
    When the weather gets warmer we will start working the horses again.
    The hours we work vary on the time of year and the weather, some days may be very busy while others we may be just doing general chores. On really rainy days, or when the weather is miserable, nothing besides chores will get done so when the weather is nicer we might work a little longer. Chores take generally about an hour every day during the summer months.

    I would appreciate good communication in the beginning when it comes to days off and when they are wanted as I needed to plan around those days. I would appreciate at least a day's notice of some sort. I will make an effort to accommodate you to the best of my ability.
    It would be nice to find someone that can stay longer than a month. I might take couples.
