    I live in Polk, Pa & I have a neighbor that has dairy goats. She sells goat's milk locally.
    How far are you from Polk?

    ETA: I am also an RN, horsewoman, and CP soapmaker!

    Polk is still over an hour. A little too far to pick up milk. Wow we have a lot in common.

    Sorry we're so far away. Good luck finding goat's milk. I have never tried milk in my soaps.
    Nice meeting you!

    I've been using buttermilk which really makes an amazing difference. IF you have acces to the goats milk then try it. We have a soapmakers thread in the hobbie forum if you are interested.

    LOL!
    I'll have to check out the thread.
    Right now, I have a bunch of different species in the 'bator & I'm homeschooling 2 kids. I haven't made soap since spring.
    I really do need to get back to it, though. I bought a lot of fancy molds that I haven't even tried yet!
    My favorite ingredient is cocoa butter.

    I haven't used any cocoa butter. I use a little shea butter though. I only started this past year, did mp for a while. We live close to the amish near near morraine state park and I took a few lessons from an amish lady in new wilmington. I think I am addicted to soapmaking. Right now I have over 200 bars curing in my spare bedroom. I'm off work from being thrown from my horse two weeks ago with a acl tear so I've been soaping like crazy with my neighbor. What kind of nursing do you do?

    Well, I used to be the night Charge Nurse on a stepdown (from ICU/Tele) floor. The hours became a bit too much for me (averaging 50+ per week), so I transferred to OB.
    I then got a job offer from the state. I now work for a state DPW facility. It's mostly management - almost no "real" nursing at all, but it pays well & I enjoy the extra time with my family.
    I used to go crazy with the soap-making, too. Now it seems I've moved my craziness on to birds.
    LOL!
    I knew I'd gone too far when I made my DH drive all the way past State College and back to Polk for 2 peachicks!!
    How many/what kind of horses do you have?
    I haven't ridden since June. A drunk on a 4-wheeler scared my horse & she bolted - I bailed. (I was bareback w/no bridle - she was headed for trees.) I didn't get hurt, just "significantly bruised."
    I haven't had a chance to ride since.
    Good luck with the ACL. I hear it's pretty painful.

    I work intensive care/stepdown for the last 14 years. Right now I've been home for two weeks and though a nice break I do miss it. I have another mri tommorow for them to figure out if it's healing or surgery is the route to go. I have 5 horses. A red dun stallion, two paint mares and we had our first babies on the farm. They are about 5 months(three weeks apart) an apricot dun filly named raine(she is a doll) and a dark bay dun named dakota(he is stunning). I still go a little crazy with the birds. we downsized to about 25 birds from over 100 this year. I was incubating and buying eggs like I was crazy. Most I gave away at 4h this spring and summer and kept my best purebred birds.
