My name is Flick and I will be house sitting for my Uncle-in-Law. There are 7 horses on the property that I will be looking after while my Uncle-in-Law is out of town on vacation. His Mother-in-Law and Father-in-Law live next door and will be helping me with the horses too. (unless they go somewhere as well)
Tomorrow, I'm moving in to my Uncle-in-Law's house with my boyfriend and getting a crash course on horses. I am very excited even though I know it's going to be a lot of work. I have visited these horses before and even rode on one of them. They are all good natured, one being a bit skittish but warms up to people so I'm not expecting any problems.
Is there any kind of special treat that I could give them over the next few days to kind of gain their friendship? I was thinking of hand-feeding a carrot or half a carrot every day. Is that okay? I thought about sugar cubes but... well.. Let's just say these horses have extra padding. :P
