I am from the big city of Chicago. 35 years I have been training Working K9s with some years also working with people and pets with behavior modification and obedience. Now retired and being a prepper at heart (person who prepares for SHTF and weather emergencies etc) and a constitutionalist (if i must pick a political party that would be it) patriot and firm heart felt believer and follower of God. I have moved away from the liberal north and the snow and negative 60 degreee weather (one picture included) to the south and the Great State of Tennessee!!! Being from a massive city I dont have expetience with farm animals and farm life. WOW! What a beautiful difference this is!
My home is a 34 foot RV. I have one well trained dog and one overly spoiled pedigreed white silver fox rabbit. I have some experience with chickens. I own an incubator and have hatched eggs and raised birds (pictured) and then gave them away to a farmer when I left for the south. I kept the incubator. I make nutracuticles. (Herbal remedies, healing salves and creams and colloids of copper, silver and soon gold. (pictures included) I have raised, butcherd and canned meat rabbits. Saved some pelts just to try it out. I pressure can, water bath can, vacuum seal, mylar bags and dehydrate foods for long term storage. (pictured) all prepper skills I am happy to share and teach.
What I am looking for...
A farm type setting to park my RV for 3 to 4 months (time is negotable) with 30 amp electrical, water supply (I have my own food grade and freeze proof hoses) and a place for sewer hose. (gray water can be used to water garden spaces because why waste water and a composting toilet could be used if there is no way to hook up a sewer line but i own hoses for this)
I would like a place that has at least one or more of the following animals on farm so I can learn the skills to work with them.
chickens, meat rabbits, goats, cattle, sheep, ducks, geese, pigs
My rent is negotable. I can pay for rent and electric OR work on your farm for part or all. If you need help I need to learn so fair trade I think. I can also trade herbal remedies/colloids etc. I can teach you herbal skills i can trade for farming skills. We will talk about it.
I have gotten these questions already so here is what I will not do. I will not train your pet as a police K9. The dogs have a level of natural skills and trainability and natural genetic drives they are tested for before ANY work is put into them for this type of work. The chances of your pet meeting those test levels are slim to none. Im sure your dog is a great dog but I wouldn't expect a 3 pound yorki to pull sleds in Alaska either. The right dog for the right job. I will not teach your dog to find narcotics. Im not looking to go to jail for what you or anyone you know might do with that dog after.
Turning on lights, getting you a drink from the fridge or some basic obediece are definatly possible. :) I trained a silky chicken to play video games on my cell phone. Hey a neighbor gave me my first chicken. Im a retired trainer with extra time. You KNOW something strange was going to come out of a new animal in the hands of a trainer with extra time right? lol
So if you think you or someone you know might need or want help please give me a call or text or email. I am drug free and I dont drink alcahol at all. Im quiet, not into loud music or parties and not looking to date anyone. I can pass ANY back ground check. I have ref. if needed.
