Reliable House Sitter Needed
I'm looking for a responsible person who is willing to stay at my home and take care of animals over the Thanksgiving holiday and a few other long weekends throughout the winter. I have a small farm with: a horse, four sheep, eight laying hens, two dogs and two goldfish. My home is heated 50% with wood, and we supplement the animal food with wheat grass that needs to be seeded and harvested daily. Larger animals need to be fed twice a day and dogs require walking daily. The house is prepared and stocked for a zombie apocolyspe and/or all other disasters. I live on Moose Mountain, a 15 minute drive to campus. All wheel drive vehicle required. We have internet, large screen TV, every gaming system imaginable w/RockBand, exercise room and snow machine as we are located next to an expansive network of skiing and hiking trails. So if you like fresh eggs, conserving water, hauling wood and organic foods and $40/day - please contact Kate Wattum 450-8104.
