We are an equine veterinary business operating from a 45 hectare farm in North East Victoria. We perform lots of equine reproductive work and during our peak season (Sept to January) have many client horses agisted here on farm for reproductive work.
We are looking for a helper to stay with us for the peak season and help out around the house and on the farm. Duties will include helping our resident veterinarian foaling down mares and caring for patients after hours during the week. Weekend duties will involve horse husbandry (eg feeding and care) and assisting the veterinarian during the day. Consequently you must have extensive experience handling horses.
Help is in exchange for full board and keep plus payment for the weekend work. We will make sure that you get time off during the week and would encourage you to spend your spare time looking around the north east and enjoying our lovely part of Australia. A car is available for your use (you pay the fuel).
Accommodation is with the resident veterinarian (single mum) and her 2 daughters (9 and 7). We have a dog, 2 cats and lots of horses! You will have your own room. You must enjoy the company of children and strictly non smokers please. We enjoy the company of visitors to Australia and like to think that you will feel part of the family while staying with us.
