General description

  • Main home
Old farmhouse in the country with very large garden for relaxation. Situated between Niort and Poitiers and about 1 hour from La Rochelle.

Needs and Animals

  • 3 dogs
  • Farm animals
We have 1 beagle age 11 years and 2 Labradors age 4 years that need to be walked at least every couple of days as the Alfie our Beagle suffers from Arthritis and depending on how he is as to when you walked the dogs, this I would leave to your discretion but would prefer that all dogs be walked together. They are quite happy to play in our garden which is very large.
Grass would need to be cut every week and we have a sit and ride as well as a self propelled mower. The pathway will need to be weeded but this is easy as we have a large spray bottle that you fill and does most of the work for you.
As for the sheep all you have to do is make sure they have clean water and count them every day. The house must be kept clean and tidy and hoover every day having 3 dogs does give off a lot of hair.
Alfie (our Beagle) needs to be given a tablet morning and evening for his Arthritis he doesn't have a problem with taking these just put it in his food. they also have a spoon of plain yogurt and a spoon of tuna fish with their morning feed only.
Sheep are extremely easy just a case of making sure they have fresh water and a head count each day.
Ducks need feeding once a day and given when needed. When giving the water 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar is added to the water, cleaning out of ducks is usually once a week.
