We need a house sitter

Northern Victoria - Shepparton & Central North


Hi Sitters,

My husband and I are hoping to have a loving, caring horse confident house sitter/s to come and spend time at our small property located in Rushworth, Victoria. You must have a love for animals and have experience with horses, :)

We have 2 horses, all are non-rideable, ages are, 14 & 4 that will require minimal care and attention. Basic care is all that is needed., putting fly veils on and off. A feed once per day, check on water troughs and clean up of manure. They will have access to hay. We need to know that you can be OK and are CONFIDENT around our young 4-year-old horse in particular.

Our 4-year-old is very human confident, he was born and raised with us, he oozes cheekiness and his Mum is also with us. Ideally, we would prefer that the house sitter arrives before our leave date, so we can show you our horse routine because their routine is important.

We also have one dog and a cat that will require feeding and some of your attention.

Garden is minimal, so a bucket of water to a few plants is all that is required.

There is room for a caravan if that is how you travel as well as a spare bedroom in our cosy clean home. We prefer non-smokers.

You are also welcome to stay on when we return if that helps with your travel/house sit plans.

Feel free to get in touch with us about this opportunity.

Georgie & Dave
