Thoughts from Kelln

Base

Posted on September 29, 2016

Lots of new breeders are looking for “that” buck.  The one to elevate their program.  This is all well and good, but….  But, you first have to have a base of genetics built into your doe herd.  Get those females similar in type and kind and most imortantly, similar in genetics.  Then, when you get “that” buck, it is more apt to have a large impact instead of just working on a doe or two.

Wow! Somebody needs to flush

Posted on September 28, 2016

I did not watch the debate last night.  I turned the channel to the debate and the Dragon Lady heard it.  I got yelled at.  Rightfully so.  No household should have that crap playing.  Even though I didn’t watch it live, I might have spent most of the AM hours watching the replays. I wish that I could sleep like a normal person.  Then, I found humour in the chive posts regarding this matchup of

State Fair of OK

Posted on September 25, 2016

Made it down to the great state fair of Oklahoma.  Didn’t spend much time on the midway judging Ms. Skank OK.  But, it looked like there was plenty of viable candidates.  We did show a couple of wethers.  But, we obviously did not take the right ones.   It happens.  Unlike other state fairs, this show is really just a big jackpot.  The top end is always really good.  Most years, the winners from this

Yoda

Posted on September 25, 2016

       Without a doubt, one of my all time favorite movie characters is Yoda.  Even non-Star Wars fans recognized Yoda.  I just drug my old, tired donkey in from the great state fair of OK and turned on the tube.  The Empire Strikes Back is on TNT.  Although I really like the CGI produced light saber wielding Yoda in the newer Star Wars movies, I prefer the old school muppet Yoda.

Prejudice

Posted on September 23, 2016

Here we go with another cop shooting, followed by violent protests.  This stuff just doesn’t make much sense to me.  We’ve got a backup quarterback still protesting the national anthem.  Common sense is such a rare commodity these days. I’m not racist.  Although, I do enjoy a good joke.  I would vote for any QUALIFIED person regardless of race, color, religion, sex or even if they were an ou fan.  It would not bother me

Welding

Posted on September 21, 2016

      This is a science and art that everyone needs to understand.  Welding holds our universe together.  Kela wasn’t an expert welder but she understands the process.  Duke is way into it.  He is like me in the fact that he can work metal but wood, well, not so much.  He takes pride in his welding.        Having said that, he doesn’t like repairing stuff that was destroyed by Doe goats.

XM

Posted on September 20, 2016

I spend a little bit of time in a pickup burning up the pavement.  I also like to listen to good radio.  Therefore, I have XM radio in all of my personal pickups.  The radio spends a lot of time tuned to channels 39, 97 and NOW channel 55.  This is a new channel that they have been promoting for months–the Garth channel.  One forgets just how many big time songs Garth Brooks has had

OYE Sale

Posted on September 18, 2016

      OYE held a sheep and goat sale on Saturday night.  The commission from this sale will be used at the OYE premium sale.  The wethers sold in this sale are eligible for a futurity with the champion selling in the premium sale.  The sale was held at the Heritage Place.  This is a swank horse sale facility.  This made for an excellent sale atmosphere.  The breeders brought a really good set of

It is official!

Posted on September 15, 2016

I have been feeling older lately.  Different parts hurt.  Clothes don’t quite fit right.  Gray is the predominant color on my head.  Basically, I have begun to realize that age is starting to catch up to me.  Throw in the fact that I am not exactly a slick, well-maintained, Sunday driver kind of unit.  There has been some self-inflicted hard miles.   Today, the Shattuck FFA was judging livestock at the State Fair of OK.

Best Movie Ever

Posted on September 13, 2016

 “You’re going to need a bigger boat.”       It isn’t my favorite movie, but I won’t argue if you tell me that Jaws is the best movie of all time.  Obviously, this time-tested classic is on the tube tonight.      I herded 60 plus does into the corrals by myself.  Then sorted them down to the one doe that I needed.  The doe was K9. Nine year old does don’t sort easy.
