First, houses - As a fit, well-educated, responsible woman, I am capable of looking after your home: cleaning, gardening, and light maintenance, plus just being there to make sure your home is safe and sound. I adapt easily to different situations and love exploring the local area, but also am quite content to stay at home reading, writing and looking after any animals. I have owned my own house for the past 20 years, but have chosen to spend the next couple travelling around Australia.
Hounds, horses and hens, etc - I grew up on a farm and have cared for dogs and horses all my life. I love dogs, but as I was a career gal until recently, I didn't think it was fair to leave a dog at home alone. And now that I'm travelling, it's impossible too. What better way to get a fix of animal energy than by walking and caring for someone else's beloved dog? I've also had chooks of my own, and this past winter spent time caring for two horses in snowbound Montana. There's not much worse than shovelling horse manure and pitchforking hay in minus 40 degrees C weather!
