Buy yourself a pair of muck boots, or rubber boots, or snow boots (depending on the weather), a pair of jeans and a couple t-shirts. If it is going to be cold – A jacket or hoody you don’t care about throwing in the wash and some gloves, ear muffs, scarf, and a cheap pair of snow pants. You will be good to go.

I live in the barn, other then a good pair of boots it doesn’t matter what you wear, everything can be washed. Just don’t wear white!

jeans and knee boots. Leather one’s if you have them so they can be easily cleaned. If you don’t have them, get a pair of rubber galoshes lol

If there’s mud and animals, make sure to have close toed shoes. 

I’m assuming you are staying in austraila so it might be hot. You could always do bermuda shorts and flowy shirts (cotton so easily washed) or even sundresses and cowboy boots. 

Maybe something like this (without the weird scarf), if you are going for a “nicer” look:

Or just this for more casual:

I didn’t see that you were in australia… oops lol. In that case any sort of closed toe shoes will work, boots are still best though. You can wear anything else that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty, I still recommend jeans even in Summer, but bring tee-shirts and tank tops and shorts and sundresses if you like them.

Second Kat’s comment on closed toed shoes. Sneakers would work if you are not going to be close to the animals but if they have decently sized ones (bigger than a goat) you want something with a sturdy toe. High heeled boots probably wouldn’t fly if you are planning on spending time outside.

Do you know if they dress up for Christmas Eve/Day? If so, I doubt they are planning on spending time with the animals in their nice clothes either.

I would recommend lightweight cargo shorts and cute tank tops. Sturdy hiking boots are a godsend on the farm. Some lightweight larger longsleeve button front shirts would be nice to tied at the waist. I would take a large brim hat and a couple of nice outfits for any outings. Invest in a pair of cute rain boots to leave by the door for quick jaunts outside or if called upon to enter any pens. I loved these:
