Experienced horsewoman. I've also owned chickens, ducks, rabbits, and donkeys. Limited experience with cows and goats. I can groom and exercise horses, feed livestock, keep waters full, and check for injuries and tend to minor injuries.
Edit: January, 2024. I am leaving the UK early February but leaving my profile active. I'll be eligible to return in the Fall of 2024. If you are planning a snowbird getaway for a few months this winter, please contact me.
Hi there! I’m Cheryl, travel on a Canadian passport, newly retired (June/23), and ready to begin my next career as a nomad. I’m a vegetarian, non-smoker, non-drinker, no drugs, and generally live a healthy lifestyle. I'm from the West Coast of Canada. All my grandparents and my mother were born in Scotland. I have cousins around the U.K. and I'm looking to spend more time there inbetween other travels.
I've owned horses and dogs most of my life, mostly rescues. My last dog recently passed away which is why I've decided to become a not-quite-grey housesitter. My horse is in boarding. Yes, I have an expensive pasture ornament living the good life on my nickel. I’m an experienced horsewoman who knows the difference between taking care of minor injuries on my own or if it's time to call a vet. Besides horses and dogs, I’ve also owned cats, mini-donkeys, rabbits, ducks, and chickens. I'm comfortable around animals of all sizes.
I'm experienced at giving medications to animals. Senior animals who need extra TLC? Here I am! Not a problem at all if your pets like to sleep on the bed with me.
I'm a native English speaker and I've traveled across Canada, the United States, Europe, Mexico, China, Japan, and Central America.
My hobbies are horseback riding, walking, photography, swimming, reading, and traveling.
So, why do I want to be a not-quite-grey housesitter? I've whittled my worldly possessions down to a suitcase and laptop bag and want to experience different countries and cultures and live like a local. I love animals and while I’m a nomad, it’s not fair to own a dog. But I know there are dogs out there who would love to go walkies and get loved on while their parents are on vacation. I can walk two large dogs at the same time or walk them in shifts.
I'm ready to lavish love on your pets!
