Demand

Posted on July 20, 2015

     There is obviously a demand for older, proven does.  Helms sold several last week for a wad of cash, these nifty nannies brought a pile and I bet that Pfeiffer’s deal will go pretty good.  I didn’t buy any of mine back.  They sold and both buyers know what they are getting; thus the reason that they went after them.    I’m pretty sure that both will be flushing these girls hard.

Nifty Nannies

Posted on July 16, 2015

     We are having a Nifty Nannies online sale.  This online auction event will take place Sunday evening, July 19 on oklahomashowgoats.com.  These nannies are all proven breeders.  These cougars look the part and have the resume’s to go along with the looks and genetics.  There are no known reproductive problems.  All but one of the does has been weaned.  I have a partner on 5 of the does and that is why they

Better Mousetrap

Posted on July 14, 2015

     This has been a pursuit for inventors for years….to build a better mousetrap.  I’ve got numerous bait stations, strategically placed bait (where the dogs can’t get to it), traps and a well armed Duke that can shoot to kill at any mice or rats.  But the most effective mouse killing device on our place is a water tank.  It is nothing but a round plastic tank that was originally a plastic container for

Friday and I don’t give a…

rat’s butt about much else.  What happened to the slow season?  It doesn’t  exist anymore.  Lots of miles covered and another week is in the books.  The calendar just keeps rolling.  Most of this week has been overcast, damp and somewhat wet here in paradise.  However, one doesn’t have to go very far in any direction from paradise to see LOTS of water.  I’ve seen cotton fields that looked like rice paddys.  Hay meadows that

F.O.A.T.

Funniest Of All Time I like to laugh.  And in the goat business, you better be able to laugh as bad weather, bad luck or just the goats themselves will make you need a laugh. Bill Cosby– I wasn’t very old when I saw the Bill Cosby Himself special.  It was killer funny then and has stood up to the test of time.  Regardless of his current issues, that dude was all time classic funny.

Not since…

Posted on July 07, 2015

at leat ’86 or ’87.  I don’t remember for sure.  I hated picking this crap out of Dad’s garden when I was a kid.  The plants were spiny and would almost stick you.  Not like a sandbur, but just enought that it would piss you off if you didn’t have gloves on.  I tried eating it back in the 80s and hated it.  Fried, pickled, whatever, it didn’t matter, this crap was a weed and

Road Weary

Posted on July 06, 2015

    I am a little bit (LOT) road weary.  We’ve covered some miles the past 6 weeks.  But without a doubt, the worst miles have been this past week.  I have had to make the trek from Shattuck to Camp Tulakogee three times this past week.  It has been a HUGE PITA! (Pain In The Ass).        One of the very best things that the Oklahoma FFA does is the Alumni Camp.

Requests

Posted on July 04, 2015

     It is hard to come up with something everyday to write about.  Don’t get me wrong, I have opinions everyday, but some I have to leave alone.  Some stories just don’t need posting and even though I do know the general locale of where my daughter is at this present time, I cannot and will not write about it.  Trust me though, it’s cool.  Real cool.        However, I have and

Again…I bet

Posted on July 02, 2015

       One of my favorite things about this blog is when people are talking to me and say, “I don’t look at your blog very often, but this one time…..”   Oh BS!   This deal is like watching a wreck.  You know it’s going to happen.  Once you start, you check back on a regular basis, hoping for that big wreck.  I will bet that you check this blog and others like

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
