  • Importance of cleaning, disinfecting horse stalls

    Cleaning and disinfecting stalls is critically important for biosecurity, especially in controlling disease outbreaks. However, much misinformation exists.

    The average 1,000-pound horse produces 50 pounds of manure and urine per day. Add on to that other body fluids that potentially contain pathogens (nasal discharges, abscess material, blood, etc.) and a significant organic load exists in the average horse stall. Any surface that needs to be disinfected (treated with chemicals in order to kill pathogens) must be cleaned of dirt and organic material first.

  • Kentucky's place in offering thanks

    When it comes to the history of Thanksgiving, there is a gap between what most of us were taught in school and what actually happened.

  • Hungry? Come to God's table

    Whenever my husband and I travel the 70 miles to eat the best pizza ever, we always make sure not to eat breakfast because we want to be good and hungry so it will be worth the trip.

    Barry gets two slices with green peppers, onions and mushrooms and I get one slice of Florentine pizza -- creamy ricotta cheese and spinach.

    As we eat, we close our eyes and smile, maybe sigh, because this is The. Best. Pizza. Ever.

    Not everyone loves pizza, but every human being is hungry, and the desire for food and to be fed is amazingly powerful.
