We are on a 100acre Rural Stud Farm approx. 250kms from Perth. We breed Blonde d’Aquitaine cattle and Quarter Horses. We have here 2 kids, 2 dogs (mother and pup), 3 cats (all outside animals) and 3 chickens. We weigh the animals regularly and move them from paddock to paddock. Our girl loves to ride and saddles her horse up nearly every day. Our boy puts on his helmet and rides his 2 wheel motorbike most of the time.
The farm can seem isolated if you do not have a car but for extra work hours, I can take you sight-seeing or to local attractions. (Not so much during Coronavirus restrictions)
There is very limited mobile coverage here so a Telstra phone is the best and a Prepaid Broadband Dongle for Internet data, as I only have a small limit on our Satellite plan.
We are 40kms from Collie (our usual shopping town), 40kms from Boyup Brook, 50kms from Donnybrook and 90kms from Bunbury.
As we are a Beef farm, we eat meat. Although we do not discriminate against people that don't eat meat (Vegan or Vegetarian) we feel it would be too hard for us to accommodate this.
I would like a mechanically minded person to help with a Suzuki Project car too :-)
Things I may need doing:
Picking up sticks in the paddocks
Painting the yard rails
Weeding or gardening, vege garden maintenance
Clean out the shed
Clean out the big pond and kids pool
Spring cleaning cupboards
Help training Horses
