When we leave, we have a family member that stays at the farm to take care of the dogs/etc., but she's scared to death of horses, so when we were going out of state I asked my farrier if he reccommended anyone; he introduced us to his sister who came out to feed for us and check on the boys. I pre-measured everybody's feed and supplements and put them in marked ziploc bags, and made sure to have a laminated paper posted with all our contact numbers and the vets numbers, and let the vet know that we would be out of town and that it would be okay to make an emergency farm call on her authority. Everything went very smoothly and if I remember right, I gave her about $20 a day for the service.
