Thoughts from Kelln

Sale

Posted on June 06, 2018

Thank you to all of the buyers and bidders.  We are pleased with the sale.  And I learned several things from this sale. –If you are going to offer open does, does with kids, bred does and this many lots, then you better clear your calendar on sale day and have help to answer text questions. –They are going west to California and east to West Viriginia. –If I wanted to screw people in this

Little Things

Posted on June 05, 2018

It doesn’t matter what you are doing in life, it is the little things that add up. –Tonight, as I strolled through these does, I caught myself having thoughts like: “If she doesn’t bring much….” “I should keep her.” And then, they start acting like female goats.   My attitude went sour in a hurry. Pick a four letter word. No, not that one.  A better one.   Speaking of 4 letter words–no, this isn’t

Posted on June 01, 2018

When I started taking pictures on Thursday, I wasn’t planning on a complete dispersal but we got pretty close.  We photoed 36 lots plus the 2 bonus lots–makes 38 mature females.  The following is a list of does at my place that weren’t photoed. — 2 does that I am working on to prevent toxemia. –2 does of Sweet’s –1 doe that belongs to a student –1 doe that belongs to Milligan –1 doe with

Busy

Posted on June 01, 2018

I’ve been busy and therefore have not had time to write worthless crap on here.  However, we did get another 1.1″ of rain on Wednesday night.  We dodged the bad winds and hail.  Hail, we are actually wet around here.  Which means that it was a hot, humid, miserable turd around here on Thursday afternoon while photoing female goats.  And this concludes your greater Fargo weather report.               I’m still

Hail YES!

Posted on May 29, 2018

A year ago, on the Saturday evening of Memorial Day weekend, we got a little rain with softball sized hail.  This year on the monday night of Memorial Day weekend, we got an inch of rain and the ground was covered with pea size hail.  It didn’t damage much but it did destroy the garden plants and Tammy’s flower beds are shredded.  There is now water in the ponds.  The rain gauge only had an

Dang Good

Posted on May 25, 2018

Today was kind of a shit show in my world.  But it could always be worse.  At least we woke up to wet ground.  There is now a chance to grow some hay and summer grazing.  Of course, we will need another rain or three. Yes, Duke is still alive.  No, he was not smarter today.  No, I won’t trade him.  The poor kid is caught in quicksand and he needs to quit struggling.  His

We’ve raised one kid.  And, at times, I wonder if I/he/we will survive this next one.  He’s not a bad kid.  He’s a good kid that has his head buried in his ass.  It is so deep that he doesn’t know how to fix it.  I’m sick of paying deductibles, gas bills and stuff not getting done right.  And no, I have not used the word dang very much lately. I have been reminded of

Tomatoes

Posted on May 22, 2018

I hate eating tomatoes.  I have hated eating tomatoes my WHOLE life.  Ask my parents.  Better yet, ask my brothers that grew up listening to the ordeals involved with making me eat raw tomatoes.  I hate them.  But, I am fine with tomatoes being used in foods as long as they aren’t chunky pieces. I love a good salsa–NOT chunky, and I dang sure don’t want a tomato taste.  I want it to taste like

Selling—High vs. Cheap

Posted on May 17, 2018

We had an ag ed teacher and a student visit here this evening.  They needed a doe kid or two.  When, I say that we had an ag ed teacher here, I can argue that we had one of the best ag ed teachers that I have ever known. He had a student that needed a doe kid on a budget.  He actually needed 2 on a budget.  It’s all good.  I could have priced
