We are looking for an individual or a couuple who love the outdoors and who are comfortable with horses. Our horses are an older Appendix cross and a mini who thinks he is a maxi. They have a barn and lots of pasture where they love to be. They are not for riding but are both enjoying retirement ! Chores for the horses include feeding twice a day (hay and a mash ), manure clean-up , checking their water and extra TLC in the form of grooming , overseeing the farrier who comes, and just enjoying these smart friendly animals. A Vet who is local can tend to the horses if need be and a Vet Tech comes twice a week to check on the horses.
Our home is in Sequim Wa., is thirty minutes from Port Townsend near the ocean and two hours from Seattle . For new visitors to the area, we have great opportunities for hiking, and sight-seeing. We are looking for pet friendly people with willingness to watch our property and pets with TLC.
Owners will return to the property once during the sit for ongoing maintenance and sitters can plan to travel during those times if they wish. The House is large with a private bedroom and bath for the sitters. There is a family room, large kitchen and an additional half bath and laundry area
Sitters need to be non-smokers and need to be comfortable with moderate gardening , some pool maintenance and attention to the cleaning of the house. Owners pay for wifi , garbage, water and electric.
The sitters are welcome to have house guests as agreed on in the contract signed by the sitters and the owners.
**No additional pets or children are to be added to this housesit agreement.
Any references from past related experience will be very helpful in our decision making process.
Thanks for getting back to us if you feel you are qualified.
Have a great day !
