    I do prefer trying local places, especially when traveling. I have come across some absolutely fantastic restaurants this way, but also some real duds. A lot depends on what area you are in. Some...

    I think those lower lines are animals that were exported for reasons other than slaughter. Everything that was sent for slaughter is lumped together in one line. It would be interesting to see that...

    The guy who supplied horses for the camp where I worked kept all his good ones and leased them out over winter. We would get most of the same horses back every year. Anything that wasn't working out...
