What House Sitters are saying…
“ Yes we stumbled across a wonderful sitter’s position in Nana Glen just outside Coffs Harbour. As it turned out they had 2 horses for us to sit as well. As we had both had a lot of experience with horses over the years we were only too pleased to accept the job. The General and Ballerina were exceptional horses and had personalities all of their own. Whilst The General liked to pretend he was boss horse Ballerina was the one who gave the orders and The General would stand well back when Ballerina commanded. They were however best of friends other than at meal time when Ballerina would insist on being fed first and look out The General if he came near Ballerina's food. Putting coats on and getting them off morning and evening was pleasant enough as they really didn't like the cold nights and loved to have a good old roll on the grass in the warm sun of the day. We have house sat for The General and Ballerina 3 times now and loved every minute of it. Names changed to protect the innocent Thanks to The General and Ballerina we were asked to horse sit another farm with 4 Clydesdales. Along with this came 80 weaners and 2 cats. Each morning a similar routine where we would mix the feed for the horses remove their rugs. Have a chat to them as we would give them a brush and check their water. Then it would be meet the calves and throw them their hay for the day. Feed the cats and our work was done until the afternoon which left our days free to explore or do whatever we liked. Word soon gets around if you are a good house/horse sitter and as always word of mouth is better than any written reference you can get. We intend next year to travel around Australia sitting as we go. Happy traveling. ”
