  • Winter hay needs for horses

    It’s hard to believe that winter is right around the corner. If you’re a horse owner, you should already be preparing your winter hay supplies.

    How do you estimate the amount of hay you will need? If you have mature horses at maintenance level, you want to feed a mainly forage diet.

  • Daily Foot Washing Needed

    God is no respector of persons. He can and will use any of us in His service, but to achieve our highest usefulness our lives must be clean.

    The Apostle Paul taught this truth through a simple illustration in 2 Timothy 2:20-21 about dishes used for a meal.
