  • Greetings!

    In a month we'll be moving from Portugal to Iceland, me my husband and our dog. We'll arrive in June (8th) and will be staying with family friends in Reykjavik, so we figured till our kennitalas, bank account and dog quarantine is all done, we'll need a few days before we can start working so we're looking for work starting in July (can also be in August) we've had a few good proposals but they needed people to start right away in may so unfortunately we couldn't accept them and they also couldn't wait for us.

    We're looking for work in horse farms, dairy farms, sheep farm, or a farm with all of them! We are wanting to make the farm life our life so we are very much committed to learning and giving our all.
    I personally love working with horses and I have a diploma on horse veterinarian's assistant.
    The ideal would be a place that offers lodging and would also need long term workers with contract. We are open to temporary but we're definitely wanting to settle down with people who are kind and respectful and we'd like to be part of their family. I have experience with horses and my husband has experience with birds, but we very much want to learn as much as we can about other animals. Husband has a driver's license ☺️

    For more information please send me pm, I can send our curriculum, video chat and we can get to know each other better!

  • Dietary Requirements:We prefer to keep a clean and natural diet, although we aren't picky. I personally do not enjoy pig meat but my husband doesn't mind anything. He does need to be careful around certain types of food that makes his skin irritated and tends to clog his nostrils
  • Driver License:My husband has a drivers license
  • Allergies:Very heavily dusting areas can cause some nose irritation but that's as far as we're aware of.
    When it comes to food allergies, ny husband has a few ingredients that makes his acne worse and if really bad it affects his nostrils but isn't anything life threatening. I have allergies to Kiwi but nothing serious.
