Country Life Close to Louisville KY
Les and I live in a beautiful log home in Kentucky. Living out in the country here has its advantages, very quiet with the exceptional coyote call or cow mooing. The nearest country grocery store is 10 miles away. If quiet is what you want or need this is the place.
We like to travel but worry about our pets while we are gone. We would like someone to stay at the house and care for our animals as if they are their own....
Les is retired and I am still working as a computer programmer.
We would need someone that is comfortable around dogs, cats and horses to be considered for a sit. Only non-smokers will be considered. + More info
Our Home & Location
We live in the country, the nearest country store is about 10 miles away. Other restaurants and shopping are found 25-30 miles from our home. We are located 45 minutes North-East of Louisville Kentucky. Many attractions can be found there, the Louisville Baseball Bat Museum, Churchill Downs, University of Louisville, The Belle of Louisville. We are 45 minutes North-West of Frankfort Kentucky, the capitol of Kentucky. Go a little further east and you get to Lexington, the most beautiful horse country that you will ever see. One more horse race track in that area is Keeneland. It is worth the drive. In addition, here in Kentucky you are in the Bourbon Capital of the US. Several distilleries can be toured, our favorite is Buffalo Trace in Frankfort.
Responsibilities & Pets
The dogs are indoor dogs with a dog door that allows them to go out to the enclosed dog pen area. At this time only one needs medication in the form of a chew-able tablet. They are fed once a day and may be given treats a few times a day. The dog pen area needs to be picked up daily, bucket and scooper are provided.
The cats are barn cats and like to hang out around the house, barn and garage. They are fed 2 times a day and are strictly outside cats. Both canned and dry food for the cats. There are 2 cat boxes that need to be cleaned daily....
The horses are in a secure electric fenced area. They eat grain once a day and are given hay twice a day in the winter months. No hay in the spring to fall months as there is plenty of grass for them to eat. Three of the 4 horses are grain fed in their stalls. Otherwise they have access to the barn during the day and night with the stall doors closed. The barn needs to be cleaned twice a day. + More info
