Is there anyone ready and available to come and look after our dogs and horses for one week starting 11th June 2016? I know this is short notice and a long shot, but if you fancy having the house to yourself (with aninmal company!) while we take a neccessary trip to Croatia for family reasons. You would be required to walk alot in the surrounding coutryside with the dogs - all go off lead and explore the forests, to feed and cuddle the dogs and cats as required! And also to poo-pick in the horses field (this can be done while dogs walking - the dogs will stay nearby. The horses are all rescues and we would prefer someone who has experience interacting with horses. None of them are rideable, but all are lovely characters and a joy to be with. This is all about three hours work a day maximum, the rest of the time you can enjoy as you prefer. Single person or a couple of people would suit this best. A love of animals is very neccessary!!!If you are available anytime between NOW and the 11th June and can stay at least until the 18th, please don't delay in contacting me! We would also love very much for you to stay on once we return, for as long as you like!
We are a small family needing help in our new settlement in a Bulgarian mountain home. We have a 6 year old boy, 5 horses, 3 goats, 5 dogs and 5 cats - so far! We plan to raise chickens and a pig, but have to yet prepare the barns. We need help with renovations and decoration in our house, fence building and repairs in our barns, and help starting a vegetable and herb garden, maintaining the land and animals, and seasonally fruitpicking in our orchard and then preserving the harvest! Also you would be helping with general domestic duties, art and craft activities, and playing with our son. We would love to have a longer-term volunteer with nursery education experience who can spend quality time with our little boy who has struggled adjusting to our move from UK to BG. We especially admire the Montessori and the Steiner-Waldorf methods. We would like people who are ready to join in with whatever is needed and is going on at the time, we offer board and lodging in return for about 5 hours work a day, flexible days off. We have internet access if you have your laptop. We welcome long or short term volunteers, and are flexible to helpers needs. Long term helpers would be especially welcomed - especially with children, and own pets welcome too! We need enthusiastic and inspired people with skills to share in return for time in our lovely area. Artistic and creative folk appeal to us for sharing their inspirations, especially nature art and community art. We have beautiful countryside to explore, forests, waterfalls, mountain views, nearby lakes for swimming and fishing, as well as nearby Gabrovo for cultural visits, history, shopping, and nightlife. Knowledge and experience with horses would be helpful as four of ours are youngsters, and one mature horse who has been abused
We have longer-term plans for rural eco tourism, and are converting an old caboose into funky bohemian accomodation in the orchard, any funky and exciting input with this would be happily received.
