Never seen before

Posted on May 01, 2020

Let’s face it.  All of us in the goat world have a story or twelve of things that we have never seen before and will probably never see again.  Goats are the worst when it comes to these amazing things but it happens in all species of livestock. Tonight, I had a double whammy. First, I was trying to sort some calves.  The first batch went really well.  The next batch was a pain in

Eye in the Sky

Posted on April 29, 2020

I could go off writing about conspiracy theories–china, covid BS, government stuff, etc.  Nope.  Instead, name me a song that came from the Eye in the Sky record that is relevant today.   Hunhhhn???   Come on.  Come on. How is a record that came out in 1982 relevant today?   Those that know, already know.   That Alan Parsons Project record contained a song called “Sirious” which was used by the Chicago Bulls for

Wicked Random

Posted on April 28, 2020

Over the past almost decade of posting crap on here, the consistently most-read ones are the random stuff.  Now, granted, the top tens and and the ones where I go off, are always chart toppers.  But, there are only so many top tens and I do need to limit the “going off” specials.   So, let’s get random. Today, without a doubt, I was the most popular person to visit in Shattuck, America. Wait?  What?

Over-looked

Posted on April 24, 2020

The stock show industry as a whole is guilty but I think the show goat industry might be the worst.  Most often, I feel that the production side gets over-looked.  Traits like kid size, fertility, consistency and most important, maternal traits.  Especially milk production. Most of what we have kidded in March and April are first timers.  Most were purchased from BIG name firms (and none were bargains).  Most are trying to be good mothers,

If you have read these posts before, this one is retarded.  If you are new, just click to a different website.   There are so many cool movie lines.  However, there are some that just don’t fit on a t-shirt but you know $h!t is getting ready to happen when you hear them.   “Muster the rohirrim!” The Return of the King.  When you hear Theodin utter these words, you know the fight is now

Essential?

Posted on April 21, 2020

All of us now have new definitions of what essential actually is? Obviously, anybody selling ass-wipe, booze, eggs and vegetable plants are dang sure essential.  Our greenhouse sale has gone really well.  It’s crazy how many people are hunting vegetable plants.  Tammy has been like a non-commission drug dealer.  She’s been hunting and gathering plants and then dispersing them to whomever had hollered out a need. I tilled up garden spots today.  And, the mail

Climate, weather & movies

Posted on April 17, 2020

“First of all, don’t make fun of the weather here, and don’t say the weather is the same all the time here.  Because it’s not.  In fact, the wind is two MPH slower today than yesterday.”   “Well, thank you, Roosevelt. What’s the weather like out there?” “It’s WINDY!  Damn WINDY!  Real WINDY!” “Well, tell me what it feels like.” “Fool, it’s WINDY!  I told you again!”   There are mornings when I walk outside and

Current Climate

Posted on April 16, 2020

And no, I’m not talking about global warming.  Your ex-vp spouted enough about global warming and still, that has yet to come true. I’m talking about the current climate in today’s US of A.  Most of us do not know of anybody that actually tested positive for the rona.  Yet, some of you are in a panic over toilet paper.  Me,  I have a CHRISTmas gift bag full of socks with holes.  I was supposed

Judges

Posted on April 15, 2020

I have never understood how most shows select goat judges.  Majors on down to district shows.  How in the hell do some of these people end up judging goat shows?  Because they took the ABGA test?  That should only qualify them to judge PUREBRED shows.  In a junior show like OYE or Tulsa, pigmentation, horn slope and breed character doesn’t matter and shouldn’t matter. The judges themselves should know when to turn a show down.

Posted on April 14, 2020

Sometime around March 17, people were already hitting me up about the Shattuck FFA Greenhouse Sale.  I politely told them that it would be about April 20.  Then, for the next couple of weeks, it became a crescendo.  They would ask, almost with panic in their voices, “When is the greenhouse sale?”  I got pretty growly with several.  I even told a couple, “I’ll sell you some right now, but it is WAY too early.
