My name's Ashley and I'm looking for work in the Enfield, Ct. area. I'm willing to drive up to 20 minutes away, however, if it's an emergency, something can be worked out if it's further away. I'll be 23 this December, and I do have my own transportation. Not counting outside experience, I do have experience with my own pets. I have a 7-year-old Labrador, a 6-year-old Pointador, a 13-year-old outdoor cat, and a 7-year-old Palomino mare. I prefer horses over everything else, they're my passion. I've worked in horse stables for the past few years as a stable hand which entailed me mucking out stalls, turning out horses, feeding, general barn maintenance, administering shots occasionally, holding the horse for vet/farrier, grooming, lunging, and anything else asked of me. I can lift up to 60 lbs. easily from hauling hay, shavings, and grain bags. Besides working in stables, I also worked with a therapeutic riding program where we taught special needs children how to ride while also working on their specific needs. I've walked dogs for elderly neighbors near my home, and in my previous neighborhood. I love working with animals of any kind. I go above and beyond what's necessary to make sure the animals in my care are loved, healthy, and happy. If you're going on vacation, I can bring in mail, water plants, and do other household chores as well if it's needed.
