  • Descrição


    I am a retired school teacher who breeds and shows horses. I have taught ESL overseas. We are a busy active family who travel and compete with our horses.

    We live in the sunny Shuswap which is a very popular tourist destination. We have two older children who are married with children of their own. Family is very important to us.

    We are not a business. We are a very small family hobby farm. We have one horse, a few chickens, and two pigs. The room and board would be exchanged for some light gardening, and help with other household/family responsibilities. There is no farm labour involved.

    Shuswap Lake consists of four arms, forming a shape characteristic of the letter H. The four arms are called Salmon Arm (southwest), Anstey Arm (northeast), Seymour Arm (north), and the main lake (west). Shuswap Lake connects to Little Shuswap Lake via the Little River, which flows from the end of the west arm.

    To the north-west it is fed by the Adams River, which drains Adams Lake. Shuswap Lake connects to Mara Lake at the Sicamous Channel. The Shuswap River connects via Mara Lake. In the south-west the Salmon River flows into the lake at Salmon Arm. The Eagle River runs down from the Eagle Pass in the Monashees to enter the lake at Sicamous, in the east. The Seymour River empties into the northern end of the Seymour Arm. In addition to these rivers, numerous creeks feed the lake, including Scotch Creek, which runs south to the north shore of the main arm, near the community of the same name.
