    Anyone fancy a free site for May, keeping an eye on our animals at the smallholding in Ilfracombe whilst we are away in the van? no feeding but some plant watering may be required. Water and waste dump on site but no electric. No problem using a genny though as no neigbours. we were sorted but a change of plans meant the other people will no longer be available.

    The animals are 5 cows and 3 horses, they don't need feeding, just checking daily. Parts of the garden may require watering. On the other hand there are lots of local attractions from shooting, golf, Quad bikes, horse riding, Fishing, walking, cycling, wildlife park etc etc etc.

    Roger, you forgot to mention the wonderful nearby places to visit, especially Croyde and Woolacombe beaches close by. North Devon is awesome, see link.

    That would be fine for me.
    I am hoping to take my first big trip away next month, to Spain, for about 6 weeks.
    After that I am available for anything!
    If you are interested, please feel free to p.m. me.

    Hi JJ,
    I do have my own shot glass(es)
    If it can be bodged then I am almost capable of bodging to recognised bodging standards.
    no promises mind
    Are you in Spain at the mo?

    oh right.
    just next door, then
    I was thinking it would be nice to have a look inside another iveco daily if I was passing by you.
    One day, maybe

    You might have to move up from "Basic Bodging" to "Ultimate, Professional Bodging" before being ready for the inside of my Iveco... Steve... The Wagon is more a "work of art" than a conversion. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    (Sorry for going off topic on this thread)

    When I was a kid my Dad had a donkey like that. Over a year he trained it to eat a little less every day until he finally got it to eat nothing at all. It would have been very succesful but the inconsiderate b****r went and died after my Dad had put in all that work !

    There is ample grass for the animals, no need to put out hay or hard food.
