We are looking for someone to provide gentle, loving care for two dogs, a few outdoor barn cats, our laying hens, quail, and a two angora rabbits.
Chores are simple and straightforward. Morning: feeding and watering cats, quail, and rabbits; letting out, feeding and watering chickens; gathering eggs; and saying goodmorning to the dogs!
Afternoon: locking up the chickens, feeding dogs, and throwing a ball for the younger dog in the yard, or taking him on a walk.
Once each week the rabbits require a gentle brushing and the manure scooped from their hutch.
Our home is a small, older farmhouse that we are slowly remodeling. It isn't magazine cover material, but it's clean, well loved, and well cared for. Our house has WIFI, a wood stove, central air conditioning, and forced air heat. Nearby there is wonderful kayaking, canoing, hiking, and biking. We are twenty-five minutes to the sweet little town of Viroqua, WI, two hours from Madison, WI and three and a half from Minneapolis or Milwaukee.
