If you yearning to experience a country setting and enjoy quiet surroundings listening to the birds our house is for you. We live on five acres (3 is forest) on a picturesque hobby farm. There are farm chores to do but still plenty of time to explore the surrounding area. Sassy my buckskin mare is 35 years old and is still in great shape and other than my hubby is the love of my life, our mini horse Pepper is 13, and the goat Primrose is a rescue goat and not sure how old she is. Pebbles who is the watch dog of the house is a cross between Pomeranian/ chihuahua and is 8 and will certainly become your lap dog. Tara our golden retriever is 5, loves hanging out with people and has a loving personality. Moby is our Great Pyrenees and is 3 and is reserved at first but will come around. He loves looking after the animals and sleeps in the barn but also loves coming in the house for people time. We have two inside/outside cats and three barn cats that you will never see. We also have a supply of fresh eggs for your enjoyment with our 13 chicken and two roosters . We love to share our little piece of heaven with our critter sitters. I promise you , you will find upon our return that you will want to adopt our animals and and you will also be totally relaxed. If you are looking for night life with lots of entertainment our house is probably not for you. You will also require a vehicle as there is no bus service in our area .
