Beautiful Glade hobby farm
Hi! We are Jeff, Brittanya, and our tiny human Ella. We have a beautiful little hobby farm in Glade, right between Nelson and Castlegar. We have 2 horses (and excellent fences!!), 2 dogs, and one outdoor cat that lives in the hay shed. We also have 5-9 indian runner ducks that tromp around the whole property single file.
Our Home & Location
Our house is a 3 bedroom (one main bedroom, one baby room, and an office that we can setup a bed in), 1 bathroom 2 story house in Glade BC. Glade has a walking trail system at both ends of the community with a beach on one end and a waterfall on the other. Glade is located between Nelson and Castlegar (about 20 mins from each) and is across a small cable ferry. The ferry runs on demand from 5am until 2:30am every day. Someone is on the ferry 24 hours a day in case of emergency. It is never more than a 5 minute wait to cross. Glade is quiet and tranquil.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have 2 dogs, 2 horses and 1 outdoor cat. We also have between 5 and 9 freerange Indian Runner ducks.
We feed the horses hay twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. The older horse also gets soaked food in the evening....
The dogs need just a big of daily exercise. The doberman is fed once in the morning and once in the evening and we leave food out all day for Oscar the mexican rescue. Kilo the doberman sometimes steals a bit of his food...she is sneaky. Oscar is a bit of a shy dog and needs eye drops twice a day for a genetic eye problem.
The cat only needs his food dish filled when its empty. Every few days.
The ducks need fresh water and pellets twice a day.
We have a great system set up, and it takes no more than 15 mins in the morning and 15 in the evening to complete all the chores. + More info
