We live on Beautiful Vancouver island BC Canada in Port Alberni a small community .
Our family own's 5 acres at the foot of the mountain with lovely hiking and quad trails and horse back riding trails all around us . Our hobby farm is 10 minutes from shopping. We live in a very lovely country setting with wonderful neighbours.
Our hobby farm is fully fenced with a large barn and work shop area .
We have 10 Irish Dexter cattle and calves , they are very tame and calm to be around, they are a small size cattle that grow about 44inches tall at the shoulders . On the farm we also have 2 full size appaloosa riding horses and 2 mini horses , they roam together in their large dry lot paddock with access to a big track system with hay they walk this area and , these horses cant go on grass at all 2 of the horses have issues with grass , so they are on 24/7 low sugar hay , we just make sure they have all feeders full in the morning and top up in the evening . The cattle are on 24/7 round bales that last 4 days , we fill water daily and clean all paddocks once a day , The horses have access to a run in shed in the summer and winter months the horse have stalls to go in as well for the warmth and gives them another place to stay dry in the winter .
The cattle also have full access to shed in their paddocks .
Our Family has 2 adults living in a 2450 sq ft log home .
We are looking for non smokers and non partiers and no drugs , Our adult daughter lives in her cabin on the acreage but she works full time .
we also have 2 house cats .
This is a very happy easy going family enjoying our farm and love our fur babies .
, we do lots of camping and would like help around the farm while we are gone and our adult daughter is at work during the day she lives on the property in her cabin . The person family needs is to have knowledge of horses mostly if you have been around cattle that would be great but not to important . I dont allow anyone to ride our horses without one of us with them and we also have calm horses that are very lovely to handle and don't want anyone without experience handling them . A farm helper needs horse knowledge very important.
