Hey horse people! I am looking for a responsible, horse savvy person to take great care of my 26 year- old QH gelding for a week while I am away. Although my family will still be here to keep an eye on him, they are not horse people so I would need someone to feed him and perform light horse/barn chores.

Saturday July 14th - Saturday July 21st am and pm feedings
Duties Include:
-Soaking his feed and hay cubes
-Dumping and refiling his water buckets
-Spraying him with fly spry
-Grooming him and haltering him to graze on the property (not necessary every feed time/day)
-Keeping in touch with me on how he is doing

Ideal Person:
-Is comfortable around my "bigger" 15.3 hand horse who can be a little grumpy old man sometimes but overall is an easy horse to handle(he's a senior horse!)
-Lives close by
-Has experience caring for and handling horses
- -He has had hoof abscesses in the past. I would like someone who either has experience with treating them or is willing to learn should my horse have one while I am away.
-I would like to find someone I could use for future trips out of town as well.

I'm sure I could be forgetting something but feel free to email me with any questions you have. Also, please let me know your horse experience and compensation requests. Thank you!
