A lot will depend on where you are and what is the usual and customary fee for the area or your barn. I can get someone to come house sit and take care of my ranch for me for $30/day and that's full care of all horses, dogs, cats and chickens. Other areas it may be considerably higher.
For sure, don't forget to bring back a small memento of your trip to give to each one as a thank you present.
