  • Make sure your horses have enough hay for winter

    With winter just around the corner, hopefully you have secured sufficient hay supplies for your winter feeding needs. How do you estimate the amount of hay you will need? If you have mature horses at maintenance level, you would want to feed a mainly forage diet.
    The estimate would be similar to a 1,100-pound horse eating 2 percent of its body weight. That equals 22 pounds of hay per day. Feeding for 120 days, December through March would equal 1.3 tons of hay per horse according to Bob Coleman, University of Kentucky Extension Equine Specialist.

  • ‘Bless me, Father, for I have sinned’

    Several times a week I pass a church that has a sign board out front advertising confessions on Saturdays.
    I confess that when I was a kid I went to a church that had confession booths, only I thought behind the dark wooden doors was either a broom closet or it was where they kept the devil.
    Kids think crazy things, don’t they?
    When I was 7 or so I got to go behind the wooden doors and confess my sins, which mostly consisted of being mean to my sister and brothers and disobeying my parents.
