Thoughts from Kelln

Anniversary

Posted on August 02, 2015

      The first Saturday in August means that there is a goat sale in Texas that I normally attend.  Goats aren’t bad, but the food is great.  This is one of the few places that I can find a potato burrito that is made right.  When I was a kid, my grandpa Kelln had a hired man (LG)  that was married to a woman that made wicked good potato burritos.  Yes, she was

Online Sales

Posted on July 30, 2015

Lots of calls, texts and emails.  So, here’s the answers to the most popular questions on the online sale on Thursday. 1–Yes, the red front legged doe looks like that.  She is cool.  Handles big.  Cool doe.  We priced her when she was still skinny, didn’t get her bought.  Now, she will bring some jack. 2—lot 3–tag 13P–POWER!  This chick handles big time.  Slick shear, hair, whatever way you want to show her.  Way round

Ice Cream

Posted on July 29, 2015

    I love ice cream.  Unfortunately, I have this little lactose intolerance problem.  But, I still eat the stuff.  I just have to be strategic about it.  In this part of the world, we have Braum’s.  They are an Oklahoma chain that makes creamy smooth ice cream as well as good burgers.  They have two big farms–one by Tutle and one west of Shattuck.  I used to sell them a pile of equipment, parts

Indians

Posted on July 24, 2015

    Shattuck has always had the mascot–Indians.  It’s a fitting name.  I watch the news and see the continued protests about the Atlanta Braves or Washington Redskins.  Some think that they’re mascots are not Politcally Correct.  Your federal government officially objects to the name “Redskins”.  However, YOUR federal government has helicopters named “Blackhawk”, “Lakota”, “Apache” and “Kiowa”.  They have “Tomahawk” missiles and use the term “Geronimo” as a military code name.    But, YOUR

Phrases

Posted on July 23, 2015

“Dang, that was fun!”   “Let’s do that again!” “That didn’t go like it should have.” “Whow!  That was WILD!  I don’t think that I want to do that again.”  said NO Kelln ever.   “That deal made too much money.” said NO online livestock sales host EVER!        Think about this….when you first play a new video game, you always get killed.  I wasn’t worth two squirts of duck crap at guitar

Small Town

Posted on July 21, 2015

     There is a lot to be said for living in a small town.  Especially, if you are a two year old boy following your dog.   Duke and I finished a welding project at the ag building.  It was lunch time so we decided to head to the house.  We turned onto the highway that heads East out of Shattuck.  This is a pretty busy highway.  We were following a vehicle.  There was

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…

Posted on July 11, 2015

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
