jill & Ian

Horse and dog owners, also experienced with a variety of animals

Minehead, United Kingdom

About

I fell in love with horses at 8 years old, having moved out of London to the countryside. At 10 I was given my first dog and my first pony at 18. I have kept dogs all my life, mainly Alsatians, but currently have a German shepherd x

Why we want to house sit

I love to travel and explore, meet different people and experience new places, but hotels hold little appeal as I find them too sterile. Also I want to experience the life of the places I go, rather than visiting tourist attractions

Our experience

I owned and hands-on managed an animal park open to the public: pigs, goats, sheep, alpacas, Shetland ponies, guinea pigs, rabbits, chipmunks, coati mundi, free range chickens, aviary birds: budgies, finches, canaries, cockatiels. Also
