Volunteers are needed to befriend two of our equines at the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Farm. Our two mules, Belle and Bird, are sisters looking for companions to brush their hair and clean their coats on a weekly basis. They are also looking for someone to give them a little extra TLC and regularly take them on pleasant walks around the pastures of our site. Volunteers will need to have some prior involvement with equines, but do not need to be experts on mules. A compassionate outlook and positive attitude is the basis of what is desired in a potential volunteer.
Volunteers must pass a federal background investigation.
