I have a smallholding of approx 26 acres in Glen of the Downs, Co. Wicklow.

Life here is made up of 3 parts; Livery Yard; House Bookings &; Goats Goats Goats!

Yard: Ours is a small DIY livery yard which houses up to 12 horses. The horses are looked after day-to-day by their owners, while we work at bringing the yard and fields up to scratch. The land here - fencing, hedging, drainage etc - has been neglected for the last 15 yrs. We're currently building shelters in the fields for the animals for the coming winter.

House Bookings: The main house is our home but is also holiday rental accommodation. We rent it on occasional weekends to cover the cost of works on the property. HelpEx volunteers who come to stay with us will always be provided with comfortable accommodation when the house is rented out. (We usually stay with my mother, who is lovely).

GOATS, GOATS GOATS: We have a few pet goats. They're very sweet and hilarious, and need a little bit of looking after - cleaning out their sheds etc.
