Road Trip

Posted on March 08, 2015

     Had a fellow goat breeder/retard journey to our part of paradise.  He just wanted to see goats.  Does, wethers, buck prospects…it didn’t matter.  He wanted to see goats, so that’s what we did.  We looked at goats here, there, south of here, west of here, east of here, we looked at goats.  We had planned on making more miles than we did, but the day just flew by.  And, we took precautions to

Honors

Posted on March 06, 2015

        Today, as in Thursday, was a day for honors and awards.  The NW District show was at Enid.  Troy B’s niece was reserve grand wether.  I called and asked him what feed it was on.  Yep, the Special K dealer actually feeds Special K.  That’s good for business.  Schoovy won a class with a Rumour Has It wether and was 5th overall.  Good day.          The doe show

     Got in late.  Did chores….late.  Ate supper…late.  Put a couple of does into the kidding barn…not late…as they aren’t due for a couple of days, but I would rather lock them up early than be late and wish that I would have.   I’m now sitting down to this keyboard to dispense high quality RANDOM info.  Wait……wait…..decided that I might want a glass of my namesake crushed grapes in a bottle.  It is

Sunday, WW goat show day

Posted on March 02, 2015

    Rumour Has It that there was a goat show in Woodward, OK on this fine Sunday.  The Woodward District Goat Show is now in the books.  And it was one for the books.  The Woodward District Stock show first held a goat show in 2005.  Kela had the grand wether that year.  It was a nice show, but the quality, like all Okie shows in 2005 wasn’t very deep.  Now, in 2015, this

Friday, Friday, Friday!!

Posted on February 28, 2015

     It was Friday, all day, today.  It didn’t seem like a Friday, but it was.  I spent a lovely wintery day in Woodward at the new Fairgrounds.  It isn’t done, but this is going to be one of the nicest fairgrounds in the state of OK when it is completed.         Our hogs are stalled on the same alley with Waynoka.  Which means that I got to see one of

Wednesday Stuff

Posted on February 26, 2015

     Been getting a lot of county reports from various parts of the world.  I do enjoy hearing of happy customer success.  I really liked the Dewey County results.  Grand & Reserve Grand wethers sired by Rumour Has It.  Reserve Grand doe also sired by Rumour Has it.  And the Grand Champion doe was sired by none other than Blood Pressure.  Congrats and good luck on down the road.      Took a crew

Things that I really like. I like getting the mail and there are checks for me, in the mail.  Check for the recips at the Perry sale barn.  YES!!  Patronage checks.  Like free money.  Checks for goat semen.  Makes me want to sell some more.  With all of the modern emails, wire transfers, texts, etc.  It is hard to replace that feeling of getting something in the mail, like a check, that you can put

Cure-All

      I have had numerous calls for the past month about doctoring kids with the runs.  I have had some cases here in paradise.  Every stool sample comes back as coccidi, but for some reason or another, normal medications haven’t responded as well.  Lately, I have doctored babies with the usual spectam.  If that doesn’t dry them up, I come back with a SMZ tablet with Albon liguid.  And if that doesn’t work,

Local & County Shows

Posted on February 22, 2015

      Why is it hard to find good ag teachers?  I can answer this.  It’s because nobody wants to deal with the low rent showers during local & county stock shows.  The serious showers take care of business and don’t sweat the locals and counties.  But the low rents get all worked up and have to get serious in a hurry.  I mean, hell, they haven’t washed or walked pigs all year, but

Thoughts, random thoughts

Posted on February 20, 2015

      It has been a Thursday, all day long.  Not all bad though.  I don’t know if my internet connection is working really good, or if some videos just BOUNCE better than others.  Bouncy, squishy, happy.  Either way, it makes for a good evening.        I had to order more stuff for the greenhouse.  I really don’t have a clue what I am doing with this project, but I have good
