My husband and I have 4 children.  A girl in year 6, a girl in year 4, a girl in year 1 and a 4yr old boy in Kindy.  We love living in the bush and have lots of pets.   We have lots of horses and we all love to ride and compete at campdrafts.  We also enjoy water skiing in the summer time. The children also love to ride their motorbikes.  We are easy going people and like our govies to feel part of the family.  My husband and I manage a cattle property for the Gibson family in south west QLD. There are at times other station hands that live on the property, as well as contractors at different times.
