Reliable couple available
28, Equine Sports Therapist
30, Ex serving defence force
Reliable couple available for farm and house sitting.
Experienced with all farm and domestic animals, mainly horses dogs and cats but also cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, chooks etc. We have professional as well as personal experience with most animals and are big animal lovers.
Felicia has worked with and owned horses her whole life and is a fully qualified equine sports therapist. She grew up with cats and has been around dogs and cats for most of her life. She has also worked with most other animals (you name it and she has looked after or worked with it!) She has also got experience working on beef farms where horses were used to muster. Felicia has also worked with stallions and young horses and has been working as a dressage groom in the past. She can offer great care including mucking out stables, rugging, feeding etc. If discussed she can do in hand work so that your horses can stay in light work during your holiday.
Karl is fantastic with dogs and very handy and reliable. He did some work with dogs in the army. He predominantly worked with dogs in a rehabilitation phase, where the dogs needed regular play, affection, and every assistance in becoming normal, playful dogs again. If you have large dogs that might need some extra attention, Karl is the man for the job.
We take great pride in the way we look after your pets and always go above and beyond to make sure they get the love from us that they would usually get from you.
We have farming experience and have looked after large and small farms in the past. We can drive tractors, do basic maintenance, work pumps etc if needed. We have worked with cattle and sheep and have done most things from feeding out to pulling lambs etc. Felicia has dairy experience as a relief milker, and Karl has some shed experience from rouseabouting.
Please note that we are travelling with our pet kelpie. He is de-sexed, well trained and gets along with all dogs. He does NOT chase chooks, is friendly with cats and does not chase them. He is used to cattle, horses and sheep and is very calm and relaxed around children.
