    Hi : )!

    looking for animal lover to look after two cuddly goats and help sometimes with guests.
    from end of august 2019 until december 2019!

    Im 45 years old, no smoker, vegetarian, animal and naturelover, loving yoga, meditation & rawfood.
    Im an artist (painting flowers), studying work and organizational psychologie and at the moment project manager in a refugee program. I like alternativ, sustainable and eco-conscious living in house and garden.

    Im looking for a single woman sitter and great animal lover for my two lovely goats when im working or when im out of the house. i will also help with the goats that you have free time.
    im looking for an alternative person who knows about ecoconcious living.

    Responsibilities & Pets
    • You would like to stay one month or longer - three month is best to get into relation with the goats.
    • You are an alternativ person who has experience with (farm)animals and work in the stable or you are ready to learn it.
    • You love nature and animals and have a feeling for them.
    • Spending time with the goats and built up a relation with them makes you happy : ).
    • You are trustworthy, dependable and mindful.

    The housesitter look after the goats; that means in the morning give them hay, fresh water, clean the fence and the stable. Looking during the day after them when im not there - that means Florian the older goat like to come inside for sleeping at midday, that means that somebody stay with him in his room for this time and go pie with him outside (its beautiful to meditate there, you have also internet access) and in the late afternoon bring them in the stable. Best is somebody who like to pet and play with the goats : )!

    The goats are very curios and sometimes cheeky (but never vicious). They are both very lovely, Florian, the black goat, likes to play all the time, like to sit next to you outside on the bench, while you are reading a book and follow you every step : ).

    My farmhouse is amazing located in the center of the mountaintown Interlaken in the middle of green, with permacultur garden and at the riverside with view to the famous mountain Jungfraumountain.
    All the farmhouse is renovated in organic style as well all the household is with organic products.
    You are at the same time very near from foodshops, trainstation,... you can get there within 6minutes.
    You have your own room and toilet in the house. the bathroom and the kitchen is shared.
    In the house you have a very fast internet with cable but no wifi acess.
