  • Proper grazing techniques keep horses healthy, happy

    With pastures greening up well across the county, it is time to start planning ahead of summer pasture needs for your horses.

    Pasture provides a significant percentage of horses’ nutrient needs. Al- though horses have more grass than they can consume in the spring when moisture is adequate, the hot, dry conditions of summer greatly reduce available pasture.  Good management is the key to getting through this growth slump.

  • Carroll comeback defeats Trimble

    The Trimble County Lady Raiders traveled to Carrollton ready to play on April 17. They were determined not to have a repeat episode of their last meeting with the Lady Panthers just five days before, in which Carroll County traveled to their new softball complex and handed them an embarrassing 18-1 loss in the 8th Region All-A Classic.

    “We came more prepared tonight,” Trimble head coach Tonya Black said. “We weren’t prepared Class A at all. I knew we could play with them, it was just a matter of us doing it.”
