Country life might seem idyllic compared with the city—there’s a slower pace of life, a stronger sense of community, and way more home for your dollar, even including a nice plot of land. Farm stands with freshly picked fruits and vegetables! Hoedowns! Tractors instead of subways!

2018 SWEATER GUIDE

By: Meghan Gates, Salt Lick Sisters
Ah, sweater weather. The term brings warmth and cozy feelings to my remembrance.

Its storied path has inspired songs, movies, and TV shows, while its roadsides are bedecked with attractions.

DOES YOUR HORSE NEED EXTRA CARE THIS WINTER?

Texas may have mild winters, but that doesn’t mean temperatures can’t drop below freezing. On these cold days, how can horses stay warm?
In general, horses’ coats are enough to keep them warm in the winter, even in snowy weather, said Leslie Easterwood, clinical assistant professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. But for owners who clip their horse’s coat short during the winter, it is necessary to provide your horse with ways to stay warm.
