Hi Helpxers,

I own a small holding farm containing a few animals like cattle, horses, sheep, chickens, dogs, cats and rabbits, on which I live by myself.
The accomodation includes a detached room with 2 single beds, a microwave, TV, a hotwaterjug, fridge. Comes with own private toilet. All meals provided. I supply all food shared with me in my outside kitchen. Prefer helpers to cook evening meal and eaten together. Bikes supplied if helpers wish to ride near-by trails. At the township of Kawerau there are free hot pools, further out is a unique waterfall and bush trails to other lakes.
I am situated In the Bay Of Plenty on State Highway 34 near Kawerau.
This area is known as the sunshine capital. The beach is a mare 15 minute drive where you can fish or take a tour of our active volcano on White Island in Whakatane, this area has a lot to see and do.

Some of odd jobs are:
Bit of fencing
Bit of painting
Bit of wood sawing
Bit of welding (for fixing a horse float)
Bit of tractor driving
Bit of horse care
Bit of gardening
Bit of hole digging
Bit of cooking
Lot of eating
Soak in hot pools for free
Climb a mountain
Walk bush trails
Gaze at unusual waterfall
Walk in sea at beach
Fish and Chips
Visit active volcano (your cost)
Walk and groom dogs
Cuddle cats
Wake up with rooster
Tell stories
Eat New Zealand Lamb

Do any of them suit you? No experience necessary!

At the moment I would especially appreciate someone to help me with woodwork that needs repairing, fixing a horse float and training young horses which have to be prepared for sale.

That"s why I need a confident and somewhat experienced horse handler. I have 7 young horses, of which some are rideable. Most of them, however, need to be trained and cannot be ridden yet. I no longer ride myself due to a back injury which is why I need your help to prepare them for sale.

You are asked to help for approximately 4 hours a day. Alternatively 8 hours every second day to give you a full free day.
It is preferred that you have your own transport also, but not essential.
This position would suit a couple or 2 friends.
Preferred to be able to communicate in English.

Feel free to contact me for further information.
