We live on a small lifestyle block just outside Ashburton in Canterbury. We would like to get away for a couple of weeks just after Christmas. We have 2 outside dogs, 1 cat who comes and goes via the cat door,chooks, 2 goats ,3 sheep and 5 cows . Basically you would be feeding the animals and exercising the dogs. The cows may need an electric fence moved at some stage. The house is a large 4 bedroom home with a large fully fenced yard. It has a large low maintenance garden which may require watering if it is very dry and there are a few pot plants to water.
