  • COLUMN: Taking care of horses important in dry conditions

    No question about it, 2012 is proving to be a record breaker where heat and drought are concerned. You’ll want to make some adjustments due to the weather to take care of your horses this summer.

  • COLUMN: Where have you seen God lately?

    Over the last few years, it has been my privilege to share my thoughts with you through these columns. My goal is that we would all learn to see God at work in the little things that make up our daily lives. Whether it is taking out the trash, caring for your dog, or driving down the road, there are glimpses of God at work everywhere.
