        Here’s what I know on this day.      I was reminded that I live in NW Oklahoma as the wind has howled and the temperature has changed drastically.  Not a day that one should open more than one vehicle door at a time.  The dash on a 4 door pickup can get cleaned in a hurry.      It is Veteran’s Day.  Yes, the Shattuck Veteran’s Program was last night.

Veteran’s Day

Posted on November 11, 2015

      We went to the Shattuck Veteran’s Day program.  Shattuck has a long history of having an outstanding high school & junior high choir.  This year is no exception.  They put on a stellar program.  There is some real talent and Mrs. Dorsey gets that talent to shine.  Way cool deal!  Duke even sings.  They also had a very good speaker.  He was a retired military man that is native to Shattuck.  Outstanding

Here I sit….

like a dude in a quick stop bathroom stall.  Just trying to come up with something witty to write.         Our eldest child and favorite daughter is getting ready to get on a plane to head to some other continent to start the production for another season of that tv show for which she works.  She will be in numerous countries and continents over the next couple of weeks.  And she gets

Blankets

Posted on November 09, 2015

    I am trying to get back into the typing groove.  And it is that time of year that brings up the topic of blankets on goats.  We are actually late.  But it is still somewhat warm for November.  I personally believe that this is the most commonly screwed up aspect of showing goats north of Ft. Worth.  A goat’s hair has no redeeming insulation value.  Just becaue they have long hair does not

     I have always been an Okie State fan.  I love the school.  My dad, myself, my daughter, a brother, some uncles, cousins and a butt-load of friends have graduated from the Oklahoma State University.  I keep up with their athletic teams and judging teams.  My life doesn’t crumble when they lose, but I am in a better mood when they win.        Personally, I did not think that the pokes would

The week is about over and I haven’t hardly been near this keyboard.  Therefore, I haven’t offended many people.   We’ve been trying to kid some recips this week and at the same time, we are starting protocol for the next flush.  I’m still not a fan of this flushing business. I guess the Schneberger crew went to a Thunder game this week.  Addie was involved in some kind of half-time little kid dribbling exercise.

Weekend Update

Posted on November 02, 2015

       I went pig sale-ing this weekend.  It is piggin’ season.  Got some bought, but need more.  This will be a steady week of piggin’.  There was a 2 day goat jackpot in Woodward, America this weekend.  I went to Woodward on Saturday evening and ate supper with a crew of goat showers.  I then stopped in for a bit on Sunday.  Once the show was over, the judge came to the house.

Simplicity

Posted on October 30, 2015

      I don’t get sick very often, but for the 2nd time in a month, I have felt like stomped dog turds.  I haven’t been to a Dr. in years and I might have to start listening to my mother.  I haven’t missed work, but it has come with a price.  Stuff at home hasn’t got done like I would have liked.  I will deal with these consequences in June of next year.

The hunt is on!

Posted on October 27, 2015

     One thing about the goat industry, the hunt for wethers actually lasts from March to November (or until nominations, validations or there aren’t any good ones left).   The SW pig buying season is basically the last couple of weeks in October and the first couple of November.  Although it is a shorter buying season, people make the same mistakes.  They get the fever, buy too early, too big and then have to

    We survived a trip to Kansas City.  It was a good trip and was probably the deepest set of goats that I have seen shown at Kansas City.  Duke and I didn’t fare so well in the show, but we had a large time.           I could start with the pre-show report or I could just give a show report.  The pre-show report is way more fun.
