looking for house/dog/cat/horse sitter
We live outside of Eugene city proper near Lorane highway and have 4 acres and a home we currently share with one dog (Bella) and one cat (Rosie). Just 1/2 mile down the road are our 2 trail horses, Leo and Jack Daniels along with 2 barn cats, Snowflake and Cheyenne. Our property has a big vegetable garden and a big berry patch with blueberries, raspberries and boysenberries. Also we have several fruit trees. There is a 2 car garage and a barn. We have a well and a septic system.
Our Home & Location
Our home is 2200 sq. ft. and is two levels featuring 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, an open plan dining/living/kitchen area and a pantry. Our property has a big vegetable garden and a big berry patch with blueberries, raspberries and boysenberries. Also we have several fruit trees. There is a 2 car garage and and a moderate size barn that we use for storage mainly as our horses live on a bigger property with better horse accommodations.
Responsibilities & Pets
The horses need to be led from their barn after morning feeding to their pasture just across a driveway on the property. At night they need to be led back into their barn stalls for evening feeding. The stalls and paddocks are mucked daily and their water is changed as needed to keep it clean. The pasture water trough is on automatic feed of water with a float. It's good to groom them and clean their hooves every day or two. In winter, if way below freezing( rare in our area) I have to put a floating heater in the pasture water trough at night. The 2 barn cats have kibble out in the tack room and there is a cat door into the barn proper. They split a can of wet food daily.
At our house, our dog, Bella requires 2 medications daily and some supplements for overall general health. She takes them easily with raw meat. She is fed 2 times a day and walked once or twice a day. Rosie the cat has an elevated feeding station so Bella can't reach her food. She has dry food out always and a tiny bit of canned food daily. She uses a litter box and it's cleaned daily....
There is a daily paper and the mail to be collected daily. The trash is picked up once a week along with recyclables. + More info
