Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on August 03, 2017

I’ve been trying to figure out what to breed which does to whatever buck.  I really don’t like kidding any in December, I refuse to kid in January and I guess that I will breed some to kid the first of February.  The rest–end of March to June.  Decisions. Decisions. One can’t sit inside and think today.  No, the weather is great here in paradise.  But the roofers are here and it is a bit

And July ends

Posted on August 01, 2017

This has been an unreal July around here.  It got hot but not like it normally is.  We were dry but not like it normally is.  It started to turn brown and get crunchy and then it rained a bit.  And now July 31 showed up and rained and rained and rained.  As I look in the rain gauge on this first day of August, there is 4 inches of rain.  And it came straight

Lately, I’ve been pretty lucky.  First off, I got that Gator in to Deere before the warranty ran out.  Next, it wasn’t a u-joint but the transmission.  Dang!  That means that we are going to be without the Gator for a bit.  But, at least it was still under warranty. Next.  I had an online equipment sale a couple of weeks ago.  I put the old 4 wheeler on there.  Duke found out and did

Another week

Posted on July 28, 2017

Tammy got home Thursday evening and I leave on this Friday morning.  She had a good trip to California.  She was pleased to go to the set of “The Goldbergs” where Kela is now working.  She also got to meet Billy Idol in some random club.  And yes, he did get up and sing a few songs even though he wasn’t there to perform.  Of course, Kela had to explain to her who Billy Idol

Been awhile

Posted on July 27, 2017

I know, I know.  It’s been a few days since I’ve made it to the keyboard.  I’ve been busy. Judging from the phone calls and texts the past week or so, there is still a demand for high quality bucks that are ready to go to work.  There are a lot of bucks out on lease.  Several breeders are doing this and it just makes sense.  A smaller breeder can lease a quality buck for

Good Stuff

Posted on July 22, 2017

This one will be short.  I spent Thursday evening with my youngest brother.  I spent Friday with the middle brother.  At any time that you think that I am opinionated….well….you need to meet the other two.  Especially, when we are all together. I am real fortunate to have two younger brothers.  We are all three different but stronger values, you will not find.  It is not an accident that our parents raised three boys that

Kuhl Stuff

Posted on July 19, 2017

Years ago, I met a guy with the last name of Kuhl.  I first thought that his nickname was Cool, then I realized that he was another damn German with a Kuhl surname.  That Kuhl dude is how I came about Mike Halfmann (another damn German) and the 911 genetics….which is where Rainman came from.  Kuhl! The Woodward Elks puts on a helluva rodeo.  It is a big one and draws a lot of people.

Get it straight.

The following aren’t my words but I agree with them. They aren’t entitlements.   Get it straight:  Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC…ad nauseum are not entitlements.  They are tax-payer funded handouts and shouldn’t be called entitlements.  Social Security and Veteran’s Benefits are entitlements because the people receiving them are entitled to them.  They were earned and paid for by the recipients.     I kind of feel the same way about my doe herd.  Some of

Happy Holidays!

Posted on July 13, 2017

What?  July 12 isn’t a holiday.  Well hell!  It ought to be one.  I had a great day.   I listened to Christmas music in July.  Why?  It came on the iTunes shuffle and it was Mariah Carey and it sounded good and I like it and I let it play and it was the song, not the video.  You should do the same. I had to go to OKC early this day.  For a
