OSU Football

Posted on November 08, 2015

     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.

      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.

We’re Due!!

      We haven’t got just plumb dang random on here in a while.  Let’s get random and cover a variety of topics.      I am going to start with the dangdest ending to a football game that I have ever seen.  I like the football coach Jim Harbaugh.  I liked watching him play for the Colts and I really like his coaching style–effective, wins and does not care what others think.  He

Fall break

Posted on October 16, 2015

      It is fall break in Oklahoma.  Which does not mean a day off?  Practice at the Ag Building, deliver some online goats, sent a few turds to the sale barn, back to Fargo to look at some wethers, drilled some triticale, sorted some goats, load the trailer and head to Pfeiffer’s to deliver a few more goats and maybe find a bargain.        Speaking of turds, I stopped in at

      Too many irons in the fire.  That would be me.  Tuesday was wicked busy as Blue & Gold/DJs money was coming in, we were hosting the Woodward PI group Opening Ceremonies/Greenhand Quiz contest.  The Woodward PI Group is  all of the FFA chapters in Woodward, Ellis, Harper and Dewey counties.  And in between, I took a group of kids to help cover silage pits at the feedlot north of town.  And some

       It was a FUN day at Shattuck High School.  First, I’ve been in Tulsa for the past week.  Next, I realize now that there were 3 football games on this Monday night schedule.  And…And….and did I mention that this was Blue & Gold/DJs meat sales delivery day.  It wasn’t a fun day, but it actually went fairly smooth.  Great Help always makes things go better.  Tomorrow, opening ceremonies/greenhand quiz contests at Shattuck.
