Thoughts from Kelln

April 8

Posted on April 09, 2015

    This day brings about numerous things for me.  First, I found myself at a livestock judging contest in Lawton, OK with a really great group of kids.  I hadn’t been to this contest since 2003.  But, like the timeless Whitesnake song, “Here I Go Again”.  We didn’t win, but did fair well.  Bree Taylor was 3rd overall and Kaylee Holt was 7th overall.  The team was 10th.  This means these girls had to

Sales

Posted on April 08, 2015

    Sold a couple in the banners & backdrops online sale.  Sold a couple doe kids at the house.  Add the April Fools day sale and coming up this weekend is the Banners and Backdrops sale in End, OK.  I have seen several sets of weathers that will sell there that are wicked good.  Seelke’s have a really fun pair of Rumour weathers.  There will also be a buck or two that people need

Apologies

Posted on April 06, 2015

     I apologize to all of you whom have been checking this site for the past week, looking for some quality info.  It has been a bit hectic.  We had an online sale last week on April Fool’s Day.  It went well.  Thanks to all of the buyers, bidders and lookers.  It takes all to make it work.  We are selling some more goats in the Banners & Backdrops online sale in a day

Spectator Sport

Posted on March 30, 2015

    I have come to the realization that the daily goings-on at the Kelln Livestock Kompound are kind of a spectator sport.  We tend to have audiences at all times.  Rightfully so.  Saturday afternoon, Duke and I decided to get the Iseki and rototiller out.  Duke recieved a few “safety” lessons and then he started tillling ground.  It was a beautiful day out, so I stood there in shorts, no shirt and watched.  Then

Random Wednesday

Posted on March 25, 2015

       I am rapidly approaching 44 years of age and I have finally figured out what I want to do with my life.  I aspire to be a “combat lightsaber specialist”.  Ironically, this was the same thing that I wanted to do when I was 7 years old.  After, I got older, I realized that they didn’t make a light saber like Darth Vader used.  So, I decided that I wanted to be

What? A mini-van

Posted on March 25, 2015

     I’ve been trying to get organized to clip some buck prospects.  I don’t have time or the desire to do this, but it needed done.  On Sunday evening, I got wind of a goat clipper lurking around Oklahoma.  HOOK ME UP!  And it happened.  This morning, a mini-van rolled into our piece of paradise south of Fargo.  Yes, a mini-van.  Two college age young men got out and went to unloading 2 roll-up

OYE…WOW! part 2

Posted on March 24, 2015

      Yes, I know it has been a day or 3 since I posted, but I have been on the road.  The goat business is a never-ending vicious circle.  Round and round, getting nowhere fast.         I’m telling you, this OYE goat show was wicked good.  Congrats to the Pfeiffer’s for raising the grand and reserve wethers as well as the grand doe.  Good, strike that, great goats.  These top

OYE…WOW!

Posted on March 21, 2015

    I’ve got volumes that need dispensed.  However, I am old, wore out, tired, sore and it is late.  But this OYE was special.  It was the 100th anniversary.  The quality was off the hook.  The shows were ran well.  The judges were top shelf.  The premium sale went REAL WELL!        As far as the goat show goes….all I have is that the quality of wether goats in Oklahoma is 2nd

      I’m not living in a van, down by the river, yet.  But I did look out the north window of the room and realize that I am living in a hotel room, down by the river.  Every now and then, I like to watch the SNL sketch of Matt Foley- motivational speaker.  It puts me in a good mood.        Really good heifer show concluded at OYE today. High quality.

stuff

Posted on March 16, 2015

     It is a fine Sunday evening in OKC.  Lots of stuff going on at OYE.  We are just two days away from a personal national holiday -St. Patrick’s Day.  Green, shamrocks & blarney stones and if I’m lucky maybe we’ll catch leprechaun with a pot of gold.  Can’t wait.        Also on Tuesday, we are offering Rumour Has It semen.  Ten lots of 10 straws.  This dude is making way good
