We are looking for a retired couple seeking country living in a farm setting with ability to operate a tractor and care for 4 horses.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

We have 4 horses and a donkey that will need to be fed twice daily. Watering system for them is automatic. Hay is stored in the barn loft.
We have one house cat and one barn cat that will need caring for.We also have one old airedale terrier that lives in the house and gets daily outside time.

What are the good features of the property and location

We are lcoated in Summerland BC, a small town with all; essential services and shopping, Lovely parks and recreational facilities. The Okanagan Valley is famous for wineries (over 200), orchards and the beautiful Okanagan Lake. Our winters are milder than most parts of Canada but we do get some snow so ability to use a tractor for driveway clearing is a must. We have a large Ski Area nearby as well as cross country skiing within an hours drive. We are 45 minutes from an international airport and a city offering all amenities.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

Experience and knowledge of horses/horse handling/horse facilities is a must.
We also expect that our home sitters will take good care of the home and property.
