I bet

Posted on June 30, 2015

     Yep, I am not afraid to bet.  I’ve lost some, but I’ve won more.  I don’t like betting on a video machine in a casino.  Craps table, okay.  Horse racing, you bet.  Buying stock show animals–all in.  But, I have been wrong.  And I will be again.      I did make a wager on this fine evening and I bet that I am right.  I will let you know by next week

Wore smooth out but….

Posted on June 29, 2015

Cheers to all.  What a weekend!  First of all, I am glad to finally be back home on this fine Sunday evening.  Duke and I made a mile or two on Saturday.  Hit all three sales and made it home to unload stuff.  Then I left again this morning to haul kids to the Far East part of Oklahoma in order to take kids to Alumni Camp.  And yes, I did stop and dip for

Trepidation

Posted on June 27, 2015

         Yep, that is the term that I am dealing with on this fine Friday evening.  The trailer is loaded–tack, feed, water buckets, 2 bucks to go on lease, wethers from other breeders to be delivered–everything except the 5 wethers that I am selling at Norman on Saturday at noon.  They will get loaded butt-ass early on Saturday, then we will roll.  And I smell.  Like a 44 year old guy that

Big Sales Weekend

Posted on June 26, 2015

     This is the biggest goat sales weekend in Oklahoma.  It starts Saturday at Noon in Norman, OK.  Helms, Ralph Shafer, Cramblet and myself will be selling at noon.  There will be a killer set of wethers and a really nice set of does.  I’m taking 5 wethers–4 Rumours and 1 Dirt.  I like all 5 of them.  I think all 5 are premium sale quality with a couple of them having a chance

Not my writing!

Posted on June 25, 2015

The following is not my writing.  This has been on facebook and every time I read it, well, I laugh like I am in grade school and chocolate milk comes out of my nose.  I love it.  If you have facebook, then search Best Craigslist ad ever.  They ain’t lying.  Here you go.   “For sale: one early 80’s Craftsman riding lawn mower with an 11 horse power engine and 30? mowing deck. Bottom line, this

Weeds vs. Time

Posted on June 24, 2015

     I wish that weeds could equal time.  I know that I am running out of time, but I don’t seem to be running out of weeds.  I can spray, pull, hoe, whatever, they just keep coming.  Time, on the other hand, just seems to get shorter by the day.  I look at the calendar and realize that we are currently dealing with the longest daylight hours of the year.  Yet, I still need

Cookies!!

Posted on June 21, 2015

     Another weekend, another trip south.  Braden, Duke and I decided to break the old gray goat of a pickup out of the barn for another run.  It ran like it was trying to prove something.  We made it to several farms and several sales.  Saw some really good stock.  Bought several.  Got out ran on several that I really wanted.  At least those will stay in Texas.        Gallagher’s put on

Moron

Posted on June 19, 2015

     Your president is a moron.  He actually said, “Mass violence like this doesn’t happen in other advanced countries.”  France, England, Germany, Norway, etc.  Not too mention terms like ISIS and all of the terrors that have gone on in the Middle East and in numerous African countries.         Thank goodness I get to attend a bunch of goat sales this weekend.  I will get to be a part of mild

Phone

Posted on June 18, 2015

     I don’t like talking on the phone and it is a well known fact that I am limited at texting.  I have had lots of calls this week and they all focus towards the same two questions. 1–Is there another Rumour in this Helms’ online buck sale? 2–How many wethers have you already got out of Helms?      I don’t work for Kenneth Helms, I don’t get paid by Kenneth Helms but

Flushing

Posted on June 16, 2015

     Sunday and Monday brought flush dates to this part of the world.  Jodi Seelke scheduled a flush at her place.  On Sunday, Seelkes, Schovanecs and Milligan flushed does.  On Monday, Poe and I flushed does.  It was a typical flush.  Some went well, some not so well.  And it all cost money.       I wasn’t there on Sunday, but I wish that I could have seen and heard the excitement.  A
