Jerry Allender drives a lot of places. He routinely leaves his Wilmore home to come to Nicholasville; he makes an annual 100-mile trip north; and this year, he drove to the reenactment of the Battle of Perryville. But Allender doesn’t sit behind the wheel of a car; he holds the reins as he sits in the carriage being pulled by his horse. The horse and carriage started as a hobby and turned into a business for Allender, and now he hopes to have others join him next year for a scenic trip back to Perryville.

A “foreign body” is the term we use to describe anything other than food that your pet may have swallowed. It can be very complicated to determine whether a particular foreign body will make your pet sick. The most difficult cases of foreign body ingestion occur whenever the pet owner doesn't know that their pet swallowed something. Also, many foreign bodies that pets swallow are not dense enough to show up on an X-ray. However, the statistics about pets swallowing foreign objects may shock you. About 95 percent of all foreign objects swallowed by pets will pass without causing any problems.

Jones currently lives in Illinois, but she has spent significant time in Jessamine County.

Lemiel Stiddom stood in the soft grass on the banks of Cave Run Lake near Stoney Cove, remembering. "The old house sat here," he said, pointing to a small grassy area between the dam and the water, "and the church sat to the right," motioning toward the rocks and shallow water a few feet away. Stiddom, on a recent visit to Stoney Cove, recalled life in the area before the Licking River was flooded 40 years ago. Looking out over the water, he remembered some of the local landmarks that vanished when the lake was constructed, landmarks that were torn down, moved, or simply flooded by the large reservoir; neighbors' homes, farms, old cemeteries and the nearby church, Lewis Chapel, were some landmarks he named.

Calf losses due to cold can result from both severely frost bitten parts as well as from freezing to death or hypothermia.  Appropriate management can help cattle producers avoid many of these losses for those operations that have calves born during the cold season. Frostbite is the damage to body tissues that occurs when these tissues freeze. The extremities are most at risk. Frozen ears and tails result in changes of cattle appearance but do not affect cattle performance significantly.

The story goes that one day the devil and St. Peter decided they were going to have a basketball game.

An Elizabethan collar is known by many different names such as surgical collar, buster collar and an abbreviation called E-collar. There has never been a veterinary medical device to receive as much attention as the E-collar. It is the subject for countless jokes and comic strips. It really is an unnatural, cumbersome, funny looking contraption around the neck of a cat or dog. The E-collar is a cone-shaped hard plastic device placed around a patient’s neck to prevent the dog or cat from licking or chewing on their wound or surgical incision.

It is one of the most common reasons that cats are brought into the veterinary clinic, yet it is also one of the least known to cat owners. They come in all shapes, sizes and locations, which is probably why many cat owners are unsure of what they are. Cat abscesses are seen in most every veterinary practice nearly every day. Depending on the stage of development of an abscess, it can look very different. Initially, a cat owner may notice a swollen area that seems to get larger in just a couple of days.
