HELLO & WELCOME
I take care of your farm animal pets at their home while you are away. I want to give you peace of mind that your pets will be well taken care of in your absence by providing you the ability to get away for vacation, family celebrations, or business trips - all important parts of life. I know you feel a great responsibility to make sure your animals are taken care of, and want someone who is comfortable working around livestock. I will take care of your farm animals in the way you have established, freeing up opportunities for you to leave home with peace of mind. Twice daily I will feed, water, muck, turn out, and more, as needed.
Call me to set up a free consultation and reserve your pet sitting dates. We will create a care folder for your farm animals, so that I am ready to come take care of them and you can plan your next trip!

Hello, my name is Sandy Claudy! From the time I was a little girl I have loved the smell of farm animals. In my youth, I raised market lambs and rabbits in 4-H. I also groomed and exercised horses at a neighboring training stable. Later in life I graduated with a B.S. Animal Science, Agribusiness/Production from Brigham Young University. My main focus was horse and sheep production, with an internship at a Paso Fino Horse Ranch.
Between 2012-2020, I volunteered at Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center (Now called Stable Strides). I love working with horses, especially because they can help people. When I am not farm pet sitting I am volunteering as a cub scout leader, in church, at my children's schools, and in our great Colorado Springs community.
I am happy to serve you by providing a way for you to get away from your farm animal pets when needed. I know that as an owner of large livestock it can be difficult to feel like you can leave - needing to have someone who is knowledgeable, reliable, affordable and that enjoys`` taking good care of your family farm pets. I would like to be that person to relieve you for the days you need!
