Experienced horse people wanted to look after rural property south of Perth Western Australia
We are a self employed couple in our early 60's who have a 4 bedroom/2 bathroom house, menagerie of pets and rambling garden, including a vegetable garden to be cared for. We have two spoilt whippets, Stella and Holly, three moggie cats, 4 dressage horses, chickens, guinea fowl and one duck. We have a sparkling pool and air conditioning to keep cool over our long hot summer.

Responsibilities & Pets
Horses are to be stabled and fed at night and let out to their paddock by day.
Dogs and cats and poultry fed twice a day. There is a cat/dog flap so the dogs and cats come and go as they please. The dogs don't need walking as they run around in the paddocks although they love the occasional visit to the dog beach!....
The gardens and paddocks are reticulated but an eye needs to be kept out for broken sprinklers etc
The animals are fine to be left during the day. There is a possibility our adult daughter (who attends university) will be home over summer. She will live in a separate wing and can look after the dogs, cats etc although she isn't very good with the horses! This will also give you the freedom to negotiate with her to go away touring for several nights if you wish to do so. + More info
