Experience with animals and own pets

For as long as I can remember, animals have been a big part of my life – from the smallest little hamster to the biggest horse. Somehow, they all found a place in my heart.

We currently have seven dogs of our own (ages ranging from 4- 15 years old), a goose named Fibonacci and two adorable buffs, Derek and Daisy.

Our dogs are very energetic and they love swimming and going for jogs. The goose and two chickens, on the other hand, are not so active. They do, however, like watching TV with me and taking afternoon naps.

Horses also play a big roll in my life. I’ve been addicted to horse riding since the age of 5 and I’m not planning on ever giving it up.

I’ve taken care of other people’s animals in the past (horses and dogs) and I enjoyed every minute of it. I also did job shadowing with our vet a few years ago and learnt a lot from her.

I would do anything for my animals, they truly mean the world to me.
