volunteering with horses in Swedenvolunteering with horses in Sweden โ€“ Hi, I am Douglas L. I live in the wonderful Botebo countryside with an amazing 200m longest river in Sweden. In addition to my profession in the social work field where I work with diverse people from different socio-economic cultures and abilities. As the perfect way to escape the busy country life, I embrace the countryside life and farming. Since my children are grown up and are focusing on their families, I devote my life to chicken, a couple of dogs and horses. Furthermore, I love fixing things around the house and love to do general maintenance duties (plumbing, electrical…). Additionally, I was trained as a carpenter. Another hobby that I enjoy a lot is taking photographs.

From you, as a Volunteer, I expect help with taking care of animals, 2 horses, chickens, dogs, cats and other outdoor activities around my farm for example preparation of firewood, gardening, greenhouse etc.
