Deer season is often full of adventure for those involved but this video is amazing. Apparently, two bucks’ antlers became permanently latched together while they were fighting. One buck died, either during the fight or by being eat by coyotes, while the live buck remained attached to the dead buck. The dead buck quickly became [...]Read More
Blog: Kim Lemmon
Kim Lemmon has been a member of the Ohio’s Country Journal staff since 1999. She is currently the manager editor. This position requires her to position the advertisements and articles in each issue. She also is required to write a weekly blog and oversee the “Horse Sense” section of the paper.
Kim graduated from The Ohio State University in 1999 with a major in Agricultural Communications and a minor in Equine Science. Kim and her husband, Mark, reside in Morrow County.
The Lemmons currently own a Percheron mare and several mini horses. They raised pygmy goats for several years, and although they no longer own or breed goats they have several friends that still do so they manage to still stay fairly active in that portion of the livestock industry.
Kim has owned horses since she was a child and has been involved in many aspects of the horse industry since that time. From 2002 until 2010, Kim operated her own riding lesson program that included coaching 4-H members, adults and a college equestrian program. She is also a former 4-H horse judge.
I recently spent time in the woods with a crew of loggers that used horsepower to move the harvested timber. I was collecting photos and information for an upcoming article in Ohio’s Country Journal. Generally, I picture the woods as a quiet and peaceful place to spend a fall day, but when this crew was [...]Read More
I grew up in Clark County, Ohio. Although I realize that wild turkeys do exist in the county, I don’t recall ever seeing one during the time I lived within its borders. I have lived in Morrow County for more than a decade, and I often see large groups of turkeys. It is amazing what [...]Read More
Though some Ohioans received snow in late October, a more widespread snowfall hit the state last week. This early-November snowfall was the first snow I received this season. Although I had heard reports of expected snow, I was surprised to wake up to not only about an inch of snow, but also a thin layer [...]Read More
I have kind of a unique job. During most of the 14 years of my employment at Ohio’s Country Journal, my tasks have kept me in my home office or at my desk in Columbus. I enjoyed this work, but it was slightly less adventurous than my current role. Since I have started helping write [...]Read More
Pygmy goats often give birth to multiples and raise them on their own, but recently a friend’s goat decided three babies was too many and rejected one of her kids. My friend found this poor little baby freezing and starving in her barn. The only option for his survival was to bring him into the [...]Read More
I have a pretty vivid imagination. As a bonus, I’m literally afraid of my own shadow. Every dark morning or evening that I trudge out to the barn, I have to work pretty hard to keep away thoughts about creatures of the night attacking me before I can flip on the barn lights. Whether or [...]Read More
I was having a pretty good day. I was interviewing a possible horse sitter, and I was excited because she seemed to like the horses and has the time to feed for me several times a month. Although this young woman was an adult with a full-time job, she still seemed happy about helping me [...]Read More
What can I say? I couldn’t stand to miss another sale so I decided to make the trip to Mt. Hope for the Mid-Ohio Fall Draft Horse Sale. As always, it was a sight and experience to behold. The number of horses entered in the sale seemed to out-number sales I had attended in the [...]Read More
Most of us have had a friend or family member who has been touched by cancer, and in particular, breast cancer. Each October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are all given an opportunity to help do our part in finding a cure for breast cancer. During the past couple of years, The National Percheron [...]Read More
