    Description

    Hi there we are a couple and we have a 90 acre farm 45 minutes west Of Edmonton, Alberta Canada.
    We have 4 draft horses that we use on sleighs and carriages. We have 3 riding horses, 4 donkeys , 2 pet pigs, 6 chickens, 5 cats and 4 dogs

    We are away for most of the month of January and looking for someone to care for our farm and animals while we are away. Duties include feeding chickens and dogs, pigs and overseeing our horses and donkeys. We have an outdoor wood heating system that would be needed to be loaded with wood twice a day. We have 3 house cats and one small house dog that needs care. It would take 3 hours a day for all the daily animal care. We would have a car available


    We both travel for work and and vacations and would need someone to help with animal care when we are away. We are currently building a barn and using our own wood from our property.

    We train and ride our horses as well as drive our horses and would prefer an individual with horse experience but we are also willing to teach

    CURRENTLY WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO FARM SIT JAN 6-18 WHILE WE ARE AWAY WOULD HAVE USE OF CAR
