Warning! Warning! Warning! April 1 is April Fool’s Day. I enjoy jokes and all of us on the staff at Ohio’s Country Journal and Ohio Ag Net can take or play a joke very well; we don’t need a special date to joke or torment each other. However, the rest of the world may not [...]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 is also required to write a weekly blog and schedule advertisements on the website.
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 also breed and raise a few pygmy goats each year.
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.
Since only a small part of my job includes writing weekly blogs, it is easy for me to forget that I’m actually writing for the public. I’ve worked for Ohio’s Country Journal for nearly 15 years, but because I only started writing for the publication a couple of years ago, it often feels more like [...]Read More
It doesn’t take much to turn me a slightly lighter shade of white or even green. I’m not known for a strong constitution. While most folks spend the middle of March at annual St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, I tend to skip this holiday that can sometimes lead to overzealous eating and drinking. Even though I’ll [...]Read More
I wasn’t able to attend the Spring 2014 Mt. Hope Draft Horse Sale, but I think I’ll be making plans to attend their next draft horse sale based on the exciting reviews of their new sale barn. The new building is 240 feet long and roughly 120 feet wide, providing much more room for consigners [...]Read More
As we begin the month of March, most folks begin to think of Spring and can’t wait for when is time to plant crops and tend to baby livestock. Not me, I think of war. According to http://www.sacred-texts.com, the month of March was named after Mars, the roman god of war “because of its rough [...]Read More

Then “No Brainer Day” may be your kind of holiday. On Feb. 27 each year, “No Brainer Day” is celebrated. It [...]Read More

This time of year it becomes hard to remember that Spring will actually be here before we know it. Most of the time, I just want to stay in bed and cover my head until it warms up, but I don’t think my employers, my husband or my livestock would appreciate that. In an effort [...]Read More
Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall, I never fail to heed their call. Out to the barn I trudge in all weather, Nothing prevents feeding and stall cleaning, nothing not ever! Horses greet me with a neigh As I fill their stalls with hay. Content and quietly they continue to munch As I [...]Read More
My husband, Mark, and I planned an overnight trip to Berlin in early January. We’re really not huge Amish Country fans (we have Amish friends at home), but we like to get away without being too far away. We spent most of our time in nearby cities, shopping or eating at restaurants. On a Saturday [...]Read More
