    Horses, Milk cows, cheese making, and general ranching, farming, gardening issues. 50 + years experience in equine, 12 in milkers, and a lifetime in frugal living. Make due with what you’ve got. Use it up, wear it out or due without.

    I have bred, raised, trained and sold quality horses (currently and 25 years with Andalusian) all my life. I may be of assistance through phone or video conference.

    I might be of assistance with milking and or feed questions, cow selection…

    Construction, I’m certainly no professional but we’ve built our entire ranch mostly ourselves including our home, foundation, plumbing, walls, drywall electrical etc. I certainly can make suggestions you may not have thought of.

    Sincerely

    MilkMaid

    We’re near the Wichita, KS area and own an appliance repair business. One specialty we offer is that we will travel out to folks in the country. We live about 30 minutes out and can’t get anyone to come out to provide service to us. We saw that as a need and often find our country customers to be much more enjoyable than a lot of the city folks. You can reach me through here or it may be faster to call 316-775-8298 or email [email protected].

    I’m also very experienced in creating documents on the computer – need a flyer for an event? Photoshop multiple photos together? Bring your ideas!

    Hi all! I own a cleaning company that only uses safe and natural products. I know how to get a lot of stains off of various things. Not all though. Some are just beyond help. I also can do most basic crochet. Nothing to elaborate, but useful things like hats, scarves, and blankets. I garden in zone 4b Montana so I have some experience with shorter seasons. I also can. I not professional and am a bit of a rebel but there are many tried and true things that the FDA would have a cow about that I have been doing successfully for several years now. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out!

        Sometimes peroxide will remove blood. It depends on how long it has been there and TypeError of fabric.

    I just joined (*thank you, Pinball!!) but wanted to add that I have years of experience with canning, as well as herbal medicines.

    My hubby also is a cyber security engineer, so if you have questions, he may be able to help with that.

        Feverfew is great for migraines. You can just chew a couple of leaves or take it as a tincture or tea.

        Try Vitamin D with Vitamin K2 for your arthritis. It’s done wonders for mine. Better than any Rx that my doctor gave me.

        Too much potassium can drop your blood pressure and, possibly, stop your heart. Have to make sure how much is right for you. Recommended daily amount, per my doctor, is 2 grams for me.

        I’m trying to lower my BP because it’s been a little high. Cinnamon used to help but hasn’t done much lately. Potassium hasn’t done much for me either so i keep trying other things. Maybe i will find something that works eventually.

        There are lots of foods that increase potassium. Oranges, lemons, and mangoes are some fruits. Most green vegetables in the cabbage and broccoli family and milk products. If you forage, chickweed is high in potassium and can be used to make a great pesto. Potatoes have the most potassium per serving size.

        I have been massaging organic, cold pressed hex free castor oil into my knees 1 or 2 times per day and I can now carry stuff up stairs without discomfort/pain. I noticed a difference in less than a week. Research all the issues it corrects. Good luck!

    I know how to crochet and knit, so I can offer assistance with basic questions related to that…I also have dealt with food allergies and sensitivities, so I may have some useful advice for substitutions there. My husband is a gunsmith, and while it’s hard for him to determine the problem without actually looking at it, he can help with basic information.

    Licensed Veterinary Technician. Went to school for 2 yrs to pass State & National Exam. My focus was on Large Animal & Food Animal. I knew that the skills I learned would be needed one day. I had already retired but needed to learn how to properly take care of animals. And maybe use that knowledge to barter.

    I am NOT a replacement for a Veterinarian. And if your question is beyond my Scope of Practice, I will tell you.

        So which 2 yr school did she graduate from?

      • Redcap

        February 7, 2023 at 6:44 pm

        She didn’t. She worked her way up from receptionist and in 6 years was in high demand and doing emergency vet medicine in Seattle. She has since moved back to the southwest. She was not a book-learner much. We didn’t know until she was an adult that she had a tracking issue (eye-brain). She’d like to go get certified, and we’re all trying to save so she can not work while she’s in school because she will need to focus on the books. But she’s a natural and everywhere she goes, the vets fight over her. She felt bad about not being a good reader when she was younger because we’re all super-readers. But her hands-on learning skills are incredible. You only have to show her something once and tell her the formulas or reasoning or whatever and she’s got it forever. None of us is like that.

        Then (legally) she is an “Uncredentialed Vet Asst”.

        That may be, but her name tag says Vet Tech and she’s getting paid as one. In fact, she’s been Head Vet Tech at her last three jobs. Legality isn’t everything. There’s technically no such thing as a certified herbalist in this country, no recognition of one by any governing or educational body, yet schools give “certification”. I was a trained midwife. I also got certified for some time in Arizona, which at the time certified trained lay midwives, but this was illegal in my home state. Legality isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. She’s a trained vet tech. She just didn’t get trained at a school. She was trained by her vets. And they recognize her skills. Apprenticeship is a viable method of learning and I would never rate anyone else’s experience by only legal standards, because I might not be taking their actual ability into account. We know plenty of legal doctors who are morons and plenty who are lovely. The legality doesn’t make them good or bad automatically.

    Veteran, full-time, self-employed computer and network technician. I’ve been in the IT world since 1998 so I’ve got a bit of experience.

    I would consider myself well-rounded with experience in O-T-R trucking and construction. I was taught from a young age that you should understand how things work so you can fix them or at least communicate intelligently with someone who can.

    Network and computer technician, web developer, and before that a civil engineering/surveying designer specializing in grading and drainage. After that, I’m a jack of all trades and master of none, but I’ve done a lot of (successful) electrical, plumbing and house building and repair. have a lifetime of experience with dog raising and first aid. Also experience with goats, chickens and a little with horses. I do herbal home cures for humans and the dogs and goats. I work on my old trucks and cars, but you could probably find a lot better advice around than what I could offer for mechanics.

        Turned down for VA Disability? or SSDI? If VA, find a DAV group to resubmit the application. For VA you have to have documentation from active duty & trace it to today. As in “Pfc. Smith hurt knee went to clinic”. Many don’t keep active duty medical files but that is what you need. DAV has pretty good success with VA claims.
