*** update ****. We are currently FULL for 2022 with the exception of December. If anyone cancels we will update our calendar immediately.
We are looking for a special workawayer for the winter of 2022-2023. The ideal person would love animals, be happy with a slower paced life, love horses but not necessarily a good rider. Speak fluent Spanish. Be willing to help me organize my house. Be ok with bitter cold (we have proper winter clothing here). We do have a lot of fun here in the winter. Skiing/snowboarding almost every weekend, snow shoeing, hiking, games, movie marathons. Etc. ***
We are looking for help on our hobby farm. There’s 3 of us living here full time and one part time. We have horses, rabbits, ducks, chickens, geese, donkeys, sheep, guinea fowl, peacocks, dogs, cats and alpacas.
We are pretty fun people to be around. Always laughing and joking. We have a ton of animals here right now that need to be looked after but we do try to ride horses every chance we get. At this time we prefer intermediate to advanced horseback riders.

We do a lot of things here. Hiking. Canoeing. Kayaking. Trail riding. We live in a very beautiful area surrounded by lakes, forests and open prairie. We will do everything with you that we possibly can. You won’t be bored.
You can learn about raising rabbits, birds, sheep. Caring for horses. Basically how to run a small hobby farm. We can cook and bake together. Grow vegetables. Some helpers have even learned how to change a flat tire (oops)!
Oh. And yes you can see the northern lights if they are out. But no promises. ;)
We are looking for help with keeping horses exercised, training horses, feeding and caring for livestock, gardening (we have no idea how to garden properly) , yard maintenance, building animal shelters and some housework. You don’t have to be good at all of it.
We are currently looking for intermediate to advanced horseback riders. I like to go out on adventures with the horses and I’m not comfortable taking out complete beginners.
We would LOVE to find someone handy with wood working or construction. We need to build some small animal housing and make some small improvements to the home.

I would love to learn Spanish. If someone wants to learn better English I’m very happy to help
We have 2 spare rooms with a queen bed in each and large windows. There is also a room in the basement (large window. Not scary) that we have to use if we have 3 or more workawayers overlapping for a bit. We try to always just have 2 at the most though.
We have a living room downstairs with a large tv and comfortable couch. You can get away from things down there if you wish but we would love it if you would do your relaxing with us in the main living room.
You can have meals with us or you can cook your own food. Pantry, fridge and freezer are always stocked.
We have a few dogs and cats in the house. If that bothers you then this isn’t the place for you. Like. Seriously. If you don’t like cats and dogs then don’t come here. Animals do not go in any bedrooms (unless that’s what you really want lol )
We have a canoe and 2 kayaks. . 2-3 days a week we may have a spare vehicle to borrow for short trips. If you can ride we have almost unlimited horseback riding (weather dependent) . We are about 10 min from a provincial park with lakes, beaches, camping, hiking trails and a golf course. It’s a very beautiful area. It’s a nice mix of forests and farmland. We are 35 min to the nearest large town which is Meadow Lake, Sk. It has a pool, a movie theatre, bowling alley, many restaurants and some shopping. **Please note. We are 700km from the mountains. If you Google ‘Saskatchewan ‘ it shows you Mt. Saskatchewan. That’s in Alberta… **. Taking time off to travel to the mountains is definitely an option most of the time (also weather dependent) . Just let me know that’s what you would like to do and I can help you plan it.
We are 300km to the nearest airport (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) but it’s possible to make arrangements for us to come and get you.
We are super chill but we don’t smoke or do any sort of drugs. Occasional drink is fine but not beyond that.
** if you’re the kind of person that needs to go out drinking and partying all the time, please pick a different host. We socialize but we don’t party and we don’t have much in common with people that do. It’s not the vibe here. ***
