Like a stubborn grandfather, pets hate being taken to the doctor and like to have the radio on all day so that they don't feel alone. Take care of your extended family with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $24 for four days of horse sitting for up to five horses (a $100 value)
Pam Graham travels to homes in Oldham, Shelby, Henry, and Jefferson counties to care for equine pets. She makes daily visits once or twice for four days, doling out fresh food, water, and supplements as needed, and blankets or fly masks depending on the season. She also turns out steeds and surveys their bodies and legs regularly to make sure they stay strong and healthy for their owner's return. Daily calls or emails about horses' demeanors are free of charge. And for an additional fee, Pam can nurture other pets, such as cats and dogs.
- $25 for $50 worth of horse grooming services
Pam performs grooming services, such as brushing coats and manes ($25), shampooing and conditioning pelts ($25), and trimming whiskers, exterior ear fuzz, fetlocks, and a bridle path ($15). She can also condition hooves ($5) or cleanse sheaths ($50).
Pam Graham's devotion to horses spans more than 30 years, of which she spent more than a decade as a full-time groomer for some of the nation's premier trainers. Leveraging her experience in breeding and foaling, Pam keeps horses in good health and fine spirits by caring for them in the familiar confines of their home stables. In addition to caring for the horses of other owners, she's lovingly maintained her herd for more than 20 human years, which translates to about 4 horse years or one one-thousandth of a horsefly year.
For grooming—a skill that Pam teaches on the side at her own clinics—she wields curry, mitt, and rake brushes, each of which contains bristles of a varied thickness to thoroughly soften and shine coats. And when she horse sits, Pam leaves her beauty kit at home and makes one or two visits each day to replenish food and water, deliver supplements, and perform a visual once-over before reporting to owners via phone or email.
