Recent Articles

So much has occupied our time, our minds, and our hearts here at Cedar Knoll that I neglected to let you all know of some new articles I've written and had published lately. The one that is most near and dear to my heart just came out in the Draft Horse Journal (Spring 2011), and is called "Carriage Horse Controversy: A Modern Day Dilemma". In this article I look into what animal rights activists are trying to do the industry - that is, to put an end to it. Beautiful photographs of the horses illustrate the article and were taken by my son, Brandon. Follow this link to read the article: http://www.cedarknoll.net/DHJCarriage.pdf.

The second article appeared in the Spring 2011 edition of Farming Magazine, called "Spring Plowing in New England". It is an article about the annual "April Fool's Plow Event" held locally here in Connecticut, where many of us horse farmers help a gentleman plow his two acre garden with horses and oxen. The garden yields an abundance of food that he then offers to the needy in his community. You can learn more about this charming magazine, with a large following of Amish and Menonite readers, at www.farmingmagazine.net.
