Thoughts from Kelln

Random….yes, please

Posted on July 04, 2017

I didn’t accomplish much at all this weekend….and I liked it.  It was awesome!    Saturday saw the Kester’s here picking up their buck.  I expect big things from this dude.  They are working on raising some good goats. I ate blueberry pancakes Saturday morning at the Polly Anna in Woodward.  And then again on Sunday morning cooked by the Dragon Lady.  Eggs, hash browns, bacon, sausage and blueberry pancakes.  I think that I need

Survived a weekend that was full of retardation.  I didn’t have to be anywhere special so I didn’t leave the place.  I won’t waste the space or time going over all of the retarded activities but I will tell you that Duke and a crew of boys put on a fireworks show on top of the hill across the road.  I got lots of sun.  There may have been a roman candle taped to a

Health Papers

Posted on June 29, 2017

Here is another online complaint.  If you buy something online and are having somebody pick it up, please tell the seller that you need health papers before the day of pickup.  Some states don’t require much on health papers while others require a full visual inspection, gum massage, complete rub down and maybe a happy ending.  I don’t know the rules of every state, that is the buyers responsibility.  I don’t mind getting health papers

Online Customers

Posted on June 28, 2017

I enjoy dealing with online customers.  I like talking the animals–positives and negatives.  I like helping with sight unseen purchases and I love when they get the animal and are pleased.  I also liking getting the animals off the feed bill and delivered to the new owners. I don’t enjoy the calls or texts that only ask about delivery.  Ask about the animal.  Every online auction now states some kind of delivery option.  Every sale

Sales rise and fall.  I have had a first row seat to the rise of online goat sales.  I have seen several goat sales that were started, lasted a few years and now no longer exist.  This weekend had three sales in OK.  The biggest crowd was the Saturday night sale in Perry.  The smallest crowd was at Norman.  For several years, this was the hottest goat sale in OK.  High priced doe kids, wethers

Big Sale Weekend

Posted on June 26, 2017

Duke and I survived the big sale weekend.  Although we are kind of dragging donkey.  There were quality goats traded this weekend.  The good ones brought really good money, and then the bottom fell out.  Everybody is chasing the elite goat.  The really good ones and nice goats aren’t bringing much money.  There were some bargains to be had.  I bought (and sold) goats on both ends of the spectrum.  The main thing is that

SNL and Goats

Posted on June 23, 2017

It’s a pretty well known fact that I have loved watching Saturday Night Live over the years.  Yes, that show has its ups and downs with an ever changing cast but the ups are some of the funniest stuff that has ever been on tv. I was listening to an xm comedy channel the other day and they played an Adam Sandler song called “The Goat Song”.  This song tells the story that ties back

Pretty Cool

Posted on June 22, 2017

It was pretty cool, sitting on the couch, watch The Amazing Race with Kela.  It was an episode that was filmed in Seoul, South Korea.  This was an episode that she set up the challenges and produced.  She dispensed info about personalities of the contestants, facts about the city and the inner workings of making reality tv.  It was pretty cool. But then, the power went off.  For the 2nd night in a row, the

Things that make you go….

Posted on June 21, 2017

What in the Hell? I’ve got several. Why does the internet goat buyer worry more about delivery than what the animal actually looks like? Newer gas can spouts—I spill more fuel with these “safety” spouts than I ever did with the old style.  These “federally regulated” safety spouts ain’t worth 2 squirts of owl crap.  Whoever designed these things probably had a barely passing grade in engineering but had connections to somebody in a high

Big Week

Posted on June 19, 2017

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
