Carolyn Gray/Grayson Farm. Co-Breeder of Champion Two Year Old Filly: Stardom Bound
Current Client:

"Michelle has been taking care of our mares for the past several years and she does an outstanding job. She obviously treats them as if they were her own. She has many years of experience caring for animals and is dependable and well versed in handling any emergency situation that may occur. I would not hesitate to send any of my animals to Michelle as I have the utmost confidence they will be well cared for under her watch."

 Nikki Staley
Current Client:

" My two cats, four dogs and three horses are so special to me and I am very particular about their care. I want someone who cares for them the way I do. Someone to be me while I am away. I have finally found that in Michelle. She gives the extra special attention that allows me to leave them with complete peace of mind. In addition to her amazing care for the animals she operates with complete honesty and integrity."

 Kathy Pickup
Current Client:
"Michelle takes care of our farm while we are away. Our nine horses, six dogs, five cows and one cat are in the absolute best of care. We have struggled to find someone we trust, not only in our home, but with the care of our very precious "kids" and I am so very grateful to have found Michelle. Her communication via text is exactly what this nervous "mom" needs to actually relax and enjoy some time away. When we come home it is as if we had never left. Everyone is happy, relaxed and the place looks great. I can't say enough to recommend Michelle. We hadn't taken a vacation in two years until we found her. I am happy to say we get away more often now!!"

Gail Popvitz
Current Client:
"Michelle watched our dog, Lily, for a week while we were on vacation. She called or texted regularly and put our minds at ease. Lily is very spoiled and she has seperation anxiety as well. Michelle is very responsible and there is no question as to the love and care she provided in our absence. I would highly recommend Michelle to my friends and family and will not hesitate to use her services again."

 Jan McKinney/Walnut Glen Farm
Current Client:
"My horses and I are so pleased to have found Michelle! She is knowledgeable, experienced, dependable and professional. When I return from a trip everything is as I left it and my animals are happy and well cared for. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone needing care for their animals when they are away.
