We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her services. She is the epitome of everything you could hope to find in a farm sitter. Hardworking, honest, caring and very knowledgeable about a wide range of animals. We have 21 goats, mostly angoras, four donkeys, numerous hens and ducks and 2 demanding dogs. Our dogs adore her - to the extent that she gets nagged for snacks in the same way we do!
Sarah tackles any problems that arise with consummate ease, during one sit one of our goats suddenly became very ill (angora goats can very quickly become really ill with no warning signs), Sarah tried to contact us immediately but when we didn’t respond quickly she took the initiative and called the vet out - had she not taken this action we would have lost him. Sarah continued his care - which involved intramuscular injections - for the prescribed period until our return.
Our latest sit was this January for a week, it was fabulous to have Sarah back, we returned to our house in spick and span order and very happy animals - in fact Ruby (dog) was positively miserable after she left. She returns again in two weeks for a longer sit and again later in the year, and is already booked for next year several times
Good farm sitters are as rare as rocking horse teeth - we have experienced some horrors! - if you are lucky enough to find she has some availability snap it up quickly
