“The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything: the better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself.” Dude, I can get wound up and in a hurry.  It doesn’t take me long to get pissed.  But, I do think that I am getting better.  Some topics and some happenings get me wound quicker than

Here’s what I know

This post shouldn’t take long, but…. I am real glad that it has rained…and rained…and rained….and rained… but I am sick of the mud.  And I can tell you that goats look like shit when it has rained and rained and rained.  Basically, we need some sunshine.  Solar power fence chargers and solar power water wells work better when the solar power is available.  I have had a crappy day or two and a few

That would be me on this fine Friday evening.  Part of me would like to gripe about the amount of rain that we have had in the past 6 weeks, but I know better.  Although, I can hear Bob Seelke in the back of my mind–“I can buy all the dad gum hay that I need to raise goats. ”  I agree that goats do NOT like all the moisture and do NOT look good

I really didn’t expect to make it to this milestone. I didn’t plan on living this long, much less actually being married for 25 years.  It is hard to believe that there is one woman that would stay married to me for 25 years.  It hasn’t always been easy.  It has been work at times.  There has been a whole lot of give and take. It has been hard to keep the kids in line,

I know, I know.  I haven’t been near the keyboard in a while.  Which is probably a good thing.  But for those of you that need some reading while you are taking care of your morning constitutional, here you go. This pen of yearling bucks near Perry, OK is impressive.  One would have to drive a lot of miles to see a set like BOB, Otis and Sinatra.  Good goats.  I would like to lease

Friday was perfect.  The only thing wrong with Friday was that we will not see another day as nice as that one the rest of this year. Saturday was good.  Had a few meatheads that wanted to make some money.  I paid them to clean out the kidding barn and the chicken barn.  If I would have taken the brunch that they ate, mid-afternoon snacks, multiple gatorades, etc.,  and “union” breaks into consideration, they probably

It Finally Happened

Posted on May 01, 2017

I have been limping along for months.  It hurts and I stay about half pissed at it.  I haven’t had time to do anything about it.  But, today, after dropping kids off downtown OKC, I went to Penn Square Mall to buy some clothes.  I then headed into the AT&T store.  By the grace of GOD, I caught a break in the crowd.  That and the workers laughed when they saw my ancient iPhone. I

In the words of Sheriff Buford T. Justice……Oohhppff!!    I really don’t know how to spell what the great one uttered in that movie, but I agree and I’ve had enough.  I’m ready for the State FFA Convention to be a thing of the past.  I’ve earned my keep this year but don’t know how much more of it I can do.  Sometimes, there are just too many irons in the fire. And it is

This post is not about some police dog patrol.  It actually has nothing to do with a dog at all.  It is about a goat.  One of the very few doe goats that I like. So, back in 2006, I traveled the state of Texas. I bought several groups of really good does. Harbour, Turner and Powell/Holman.  Great genetics to build from.  As I got them home, I vaccinated, wormed and ear tagged as they

I didn’t mind the first text that called me “Controversial”.   But the 2nd one from a different # made me go WTH?!  I have yet to make time to see where the 602 area code is, and I don’t know the person (unnamed texts bother me) but it made me think.  How am I the most “controversial person” in the goat industry?  And by the way, both texts were very positive. 1–My kids have
