Let’s make this a true Country experience.

I get by with a little help from my friends

Dasher graciously helps me fix the gate latches he breaks (though this one he blames on Pippin).


You can’t fix a gate latch or dig a posthole at our house without a horse in your face and chickens underfoot. Their “help” tends to slow things down a bit, but they generally make up for it by being good company.

Pitching in and helping out however you can is one of the cornerstones of country life—even if it’s just clucking contentedly while scratching for bugs. In fact, Country was founded 25 years ago on the idea that people would enjoy sharing their favorite memories, stories and photos in a magazine that celebrates the best of country life.

And we’re counting on you to continue that sharing tradition in this blog. Whenever you run across a fun story, photo or video, send a link to us at using our Submit a Story form.

To help prime the pump, here are links to a couple of my all-time favorite country videos. This one links to gangly moose calves playing in a sprinkler. You absolutely cannot watch this without smiling.

This one’s about a sheep-herding rabbit. No kidding; you have to see it to believe it. And then you still won’t believe it.

Enjoy! (And send more!)–Robin Hoffman, Editor
