        Solcum’s Appaloosa Ranch started in Connecticut before moving all 52 horses down to Virginia.
        “My mom started the farm. Growing up she used to ride the cows and her father didn’t like it so he bought her a horse. He wouldn’t feed her horse so she had to take the horse down to do pony rides in the evening to earn money to feed it,” said owner April Solcum.

        Editors Note: A 17-year-old teenager from North Carolina was killed in a boat v. jet ski collision Sunday. The teen was a passenger on the jet ski. As of Tuesday morning, no charges had been filed and the investigation was ongoing.

        While summer is underway and everyone heads out to Smith Mountain Lake for some fun on boats and jet skis, Game and Inland Fishery sergeants are working hard to make sure the lake stays safe.

  • Extra Points: Concealed Carry...

        This past weekend I was able to spend four hours taking a concealed carry class and learned more about having a permit and carrying a gun than I ever thought I needed to know.
        First, let me start by saying I am an avid hunter and have used and been around firearms since I was young. My dad took me out on my first hunt when I was 5 years old and we ended up shooting a beautiful buck.
        My mom and dad also signed up and took the class with me, so we made this a family affair.

        Rob and Kathleen Gore, owners of Reba Farm Inn, home of Soaring Saddle, decided to move to Bedford 20 years ago to start a horse farm. “In northern Virginia it’s mostly horse stalling, so we wanted to make a major move, finish raising four kids and have horses back in our lives,” said Kathleen Gore.
        Reba Farm Inn and Soaring Saddle is located in Bedford, near Johnson’s Orchard.
