Kelsie the cow gets a pedicure

Sat, 2019-01-12 20:45 -- Carole Soule

Kelsie struggled a bit in the squeeze chute as she settled in for her yearly pedicure. With a rope attached below her “dew claws,” we gently lifted her hoof, fastening the line to a bar at the top of the chute so that we could safely trim her long hooves. Most of our cattle don't need hoof pedicures, but Kelsie was one of the few in our herd who needed this treatment.

Raccoons and Rabies

Sat, 2019-01-05 07:20 -- Carole Soule

    It was 8 p.m. and dark and later than usual when I returned from doing errands. The chickens were hungry. Rushing, without looking, I reached into a 30-gallon metal trash can to scoop out some organic, soy-free chicken grain. Startled by an unexpected pinch, I jerked my hand back.  A raccoon, who had been happily chowing down on the chicken feed, leaped out of the can and ran off. He was surprised, but I was shocked. As he ran off, I stared at my thumb where blood was starting to appear from two tiny tooth marks. I thought, “#@*&! Rabies!”

Teaching Your Kids Cooking And Baking Safety

Along with being an incredible bonding experience, spending time in the kitchen with your kids can boost their self-confidence while instituting practical skills such as following directions, reading, and measuring; motor skills; and early math and science concepts. But along with teaching your kiddos how to master their grandmother’s quick bread recipe, you’ve got to make sure they understand the importance of kitchen safety — because it’s a lot more risky than pretend playtime.
