Looking for someone/couple to house sit and look after assorted hobby farm animals. We have three horses, 2 alpacas, a very old sheep and 5 chooks.
Our property consists of 25 acres in Beechworth, in rural Victoria, Australia. Easy care neat property with a clean house. The Beechworth area is renoun for it's gold mining history with a beautiful street scape in the town. Only 4 kms from town. Abundant bike riding with a bike track near by that goes forever.
The right people will need to be animal lovers.
We would be happy for the right person to bring their own little needy dog if it is quiet or if you are a horse rider you would be welcome to bring your horse and ride in the forest next door, which offers tracks galore. Amazing place for a horse rider actually. We have an arena and a round yard.
We need two house sits.
The first one from Thursday 11th July for 4 or 5 days and the next one a bit longer.
From the last couple of days in September for about 2 weeks. We are a bit negotible with times so we might be able to work around you a bit.
The horses and other large animals will just about look after themselves. Mainly so someone is here if anything goes wrong.
We do have 5 needy chooks though that will need locking up every night so the fox does not eat them.
Please let me know if you might be interested in doing one or both house sits.
