  • Description


    Volunteers are needed for house sitting, we are going on a trip in July and need someone to stay home with the animals. To care for horses, dogs, cats and chickens, once we return we will help with errands, and maybe do some projects with my husband, including landscaping. Construction experience would be great for some projects, horse experience also good. We also fix and flip houses and have another property that has a whole lot of mesquites than need trimming.
    Drywall work also needed on a room we are building.

    I am a business woman and work a lot but with a flexible schedule, but I would also love to have some of the cooking and house chores, cleaning, laundry, etc. we also travel a lot so some of the time you maybe in the house caring for horses and chickens so basically there is always more to do than we can do ourselves!
    My husband Tommy is super active but spends a lot of time in our homes in Mexico or our cabin in Mormon Lake which also needs work.
    If you like horses and know how to ride I am also looking for a riding buddy.
    I would also really like someone who knows how to train horses.
    Finally, if you can teach high school math we are also in need of a tutor for my 17-year-old son.
