Dedicated responsible animal lover(s) wanted to look after our wonderful mixed "herd"
Dear Members,At last, three months after my accident, I am mobile again to participate in the next driving competition from the 19th to 21st October. We urgently need reliable and dedicated houssitters for these dates.We are a British/German couple that moved to Normandy , France, several years ago. Slowly we established a smallholding that allows us to be almost self-sufficient with the animals being our only boss!However, everyone needs a change of scenery sometimes, therefore we are looking for someone/couple to commit themselves to look after our animals.
Our Home & Location
Our house is situated in a very rural farming area of Normandy, in the middle of a 10 ha (25 acres) smallholding.The closest beach is about 40 min drive, Mont Saint Michel 50 min, Avranches 30 min, Rennes 80 km.Juvigny-le Tertre is 6 km (bar, restaurant, doctor, chemist, shops); Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouët is 11 km, larger town, several restaurants, supermarkets, our local vet (English speaking)etc... ; green lanes at Mortain, 11 km; Fontenay 7km.
Responsibilities & Pets
The responsibilities are the daily routine of feeding dogs, cats poultry, plus three of the older horses, depending on time of the year (eg: winter = hay etc), checking fences (electric), brushing horses, giving cuddles to all that respond...Generally observing everyone/thing and cleanliness.
