  • The Country Life: Massage - it's for horses and dogs, too

    Updated: Tue, May 27, 2014

    Leslie Thomas, a massage therapist, had hit the sweet spot. She was working on Nikki's hamstrings - and Nikki was clearly loving it. "She's really enjoying this," Thomas said. "See how she's pushing into my hand." Nikki is our horse. And Thomas, who attended the Rocky Mountain...

  • All for the birds

    Updated: Tue, May 27, 2014

      Monday was all about the birds. The night before, our daughter had found a baby bird walking down the dirt road near our house. She brought it home and my wife fed it (dog food mashed up into a soup and fed through an eye dropper.) Monday morning we contacted the Ellicott...

  • Two goats without a house

    Updated: Thu, May 22, 2014

    We did not get rain or hail in our neighborhood in the Falcon area Wednesday, but we did get a burst of wind that destroyed our goat shelter. (My wife was watching out the back window and saw it strike; she thinks it was a microburst as the shelter essentially exploded.) The shelter was...

  • Strong reviews for "X-Men: Days of Future Past"

    Updated: Thu, May 22, 2014

    The reviews are in for “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” And, so far, they are overwhelmingly positive. (The recent “Captain America:The  Winter Soldier,” on the other hand, had much more mixed reviews, and I found it to be one of the top Marvel movies.) The...

  • The Country Life: What to do when the cows come home - to the wrong home

    Published: Tue, May 20, 2014

    It was a Friday night and the sun was setting when my wife looked out the back door and uttered one word: "Cows." Yes, they were back. We'd had several visits from a cow repeatedly escaping from a nearby ranch; we recognized her from her markings, which made her look like she was...

  • The Country Life: Chickens' homes open to view during coop tour

    Published: Tue, May 13, 2014

    Our chickens have it pretty good: an enclosure that protects them from predators, a fenced side yard to roam in at times and a coop that's decent-sized and quite sturdy. The coop is a bit plain, though, compared to some where chickens truly live in style. This weekend offers an...

  • Comics on the small screen

    Updated: Mon, May 12, 2014

    The networks have been busy the last week or so announcing their fall lineups, and they’ve had good news for comic book fans. Fox has given the green light to “Gotham,” which follows James Gordon, in his pre-police commissioner days, as well as the origins of many of...

    Marvel is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. In November, it will publish the massive “Marvel 75th Anniversary Omnibus,” featuring the best stories of the past 75 years. And who determines the best stories? We do! Marvel wants to hear from readers on their choices...

  • The Country Life: Retired rural veterinarian reflects on career, life

    Updated: Tue, May 6, 2014

    Marv Maul is right-handed, but there have been two things over the years that he has regularly done left-handed. One is to throw a Frisbee. The other is to perform rectal palpations on cows - sticking his arm deep enough into the rectum of the cow to feel the uterus and to qualify...

  • What to do when the cows come home - to your home

    Updated: Tue, May 6, 2014

    I talked Monday with Chris Whitney, the state brand commissioner, about Colorado’s fence law.  Essentially, what that law says is that livestock (mostly cattle and horses) are permitted to range where they want. “They’re allowed to range where nature takes them and if you...
