About this assignment

Reliable person who loves nature and animals. We live beside the forest and the Dordogne river is walking distance. 4 Km to a lake with plenty of fish and water sports.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Our animals need to be fed and cared for twice a day. So in the morning and evening, the rest of the day you are free to enjoy beautifull Limousin.
We have one friendly border collie dog, 4 inside cats. Outside the animals come by 4, lol. 4 ponies, 4 donkeys and 4 goats. And not to forget 10 chickens for daily fresh eggs.

House sitter list of tasks involved:

Between 8 and 9 morning:

At home give cats and dog breakfast, let dog outside. Clean the littertray
feed chickens, find your breakfast eggs and let them free
feed donkeys, let them out
feed ponies, let them out
feed goats
Muck out the ponies and donkeys (2 wheel barrows)
check water for all animals
This takes around 45 minutes.

Between 17.00 and 19.00:
put hay and water in pony and donkey stable for the night, feed certain animals some luzerne pellets
call donkeys and ponies into the stable
feed goats luzerne and check on them, they are free to be in the stable or outside in their meadow.
check for eggs, than feed chickens and let them into their enclosure.This takes about 45 minutes.
Inside the house dog and cats get food, clean littertray and relax in front of a fire.

No need to do anything else, but for the gardeners, feel free to leave a lasting impression, Our first priority are our animals, ofcourse, after they are cared for you can do what you like stay at home or go out.
If you want to stay a few days longer without the care of animals, you are welcome and we can accommodate, it will be simple bed and breakfast.
We need sitters the coming 8 months very often, but we are flexable when it comes to dates and how long, let us know what suits you and we might come to an agreement.

What are the good features of the property and location

Cosy house with fire place in a very quiet place. You will wake up with birds in your ears and the sun in your eyes. You can hike for hours and are unlikely to meet anyone.

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

It would be good if you have experience in caring for farm animals, or willing to learn. We make a list what needs to be done in which order so it can be done easily and efficiently. The animals know the routine, so if you for example call the chickens at the right time they come running and make themselves comfortable in their bedroom for the night. We do not have a television, but we have fast cable internet. Fresh eggs every day! Just feel at home and relax, incase there is a problem, you can call us day and night.
