This is the biggest week in the OK show goat industry. 3 big sales on Saturday plus a whole crap-load of online sales this week.
I’m a little road weary but it will be okay. Not all of the traveling has involved goats. There has been some FFA stuff, a sheep or two, a cattle deal, maybe a goat, a buck or two delivered and then a trip to the airport to pick up the favorite daughter.
I need to make connections today to get a buck on a trailer to head to north and east. I don’t know why I am doing it, but I am getting ready to make a 6 hour round trip drive to get this buck to the trailer. I am pretty sure that this stuff is the buyer’s responsibility. But I want to accommodate all buyers if possible.
It is a picture perfect morning in paradise. No wind. I was able to mosey through several pens of goats. One pen is weaned and starting to come out of the ugly stage. A couple of other pens are now 8-9 weeks old and ready to wean later this week. I’m trying to decide what to take to the sales and which sales to take them to. I am really pleased with these Warthog kids. I don’t have many but there are several that look like they will work. There is a Law & Order kid that I have had intentions of keeping intact but dang he could make a wicked wether.
Decisions to be made. Have a good one and a better tomorrow.
