Horse and Farm Sitting

So many small horse farm owners severely limit their travel due to concern over finding dependable help for their farm animals and pets.  If that includes you, call me at 316-838-5691. If you choose to use my services at the Meet & Greet initial consultation, I will go through the entire schedule of chores step-by-step with you and record detailed instructions for you to approve.

Ask about our weekend getaway package! My husband, Earl, and I can run the farm from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. You can go have some fun!

Having been a horse owner (see one of my former horses below), I feel confident with the basics of horse care and safety procedures.  

One thing I learned along the way is the signs of colic. My own horse experienced it three times. Twice I was able to keep her up and walk it out. The third time I took her to the vet for treatment. 

I am willing to travel up to 30 miles to your farm and stay overnight if needed. In this case, my husband, who also grew up on a farm with several horses will usually come along.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a backup ready to go in case of emergency travel, such as illness in the family?

  • Feed mixed as directed
  • Fresh Water 
  • Clean water tank or buckets 
  • Muck stalls

Pricing will be determined at the “Meet & Greet” due to so many variables.
