Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on August 08, 2016

No matter how good you are or how long you have been good, there is always somebody better.  Maybe it was someone that came before, or yet to come, but there is always somebody better.   We’ve had fun around here today.  Even though there are goats born around here on a regular basis, Duke’s first calf brought excitement.  My brothers and I were raised around cow people.  Tammy, Kela and I had cows until

The package went over the line.  It brought $25,500.  No, I did not buy it.  I was the bidder, but not the buyer.  2 Sweet Livestock are the purchasers as they continue to build a dominant doe herd.  Great time at the Helms sale.  The Dragon Lady and I went for the Ronnie Lumpkins ribs on Friday night.  The potato burritos and fried fish & chips were dang good on Saturday. Made it home Saturday

What do you think the over/under line should be on the Helms’ Breeder Package?  I will say the line is $20K.  I will take the under.  Personally, I think it will be in the 17-18.5K range.  But, I will also bet you that it goes overs 20K.  It only takes 2 serious bidders that drug a trailer to the middle of the TX panhandle and they don’t want to go home empty.   Should be

And here I was getting in a good mood about stock shows again……WOW!!!  I got the absolute world record LONGEST text message.  My phone went dead.  Dead from Texts??  Not to mention 27 pics which actually proved my point in some blog months ago.  I don’t like dirty pool.   Here’s my reply.   1–If you are reading this, you clicked to this page.  This blog does not show up on a facebook feed.  YOU

Random Sunday Evening Thoughts

Posted on August 01, 2016

I’m going to start on a negative note.  The Atlanta airport needs to hire Dr. Temple Grandin in order to learn how to move livestock in a safe and productive manner.  There can NOT be a more UNfriendly airport than Atlanta.  Rude people, bad directions and it is a Sunday so I am being nice….. And to think, this is where most foreign visitors fly into the US.  And this is their first view of

Watching this presidential candidate take the stage at this dnc, makes me want to puke.  All of her (& I use that term loosely) supporters have that smug, crappy look like a set of parents that know that they have the show already rigged.  I don’t have a good feeling about the upcoming elections.  I am all for a woman president, but that deal don’t smell right, look right, sound right or feel right.  If

Epic Fail!

Posted on July 26, 2016

Monday was flush day at Seelke’s place.  Jodi & I had 3 donors scheduled, Jodi & Bob had one, Sweet’s had two, Teel’s had one and Poe/Spradlin had one.  John & Jackie Edwards were going to do the ET work.  I like working with them.  Lots of help was there to do the manual labor.  The local vet was present to administer drugs.  Darbie Ross and Kory Dietz had recips there ready for frozen embryos.

It may suprise most of you that I used to read classical literature.  I’m talking when I was in grade school, junior high and even in high school.  I read a lot.  I had read the all time great novel by Charles Dickens, “A Tale of Two Cities” before I had a drivers license, without an English lit teacher assigning it as homework.  (By the way, this paid off in later years, when I actually

The past week or so has not been fun in the goat business. But, I did get to eat at a way good Mexican joint. The Kelln Klan met Frazier at Enrique’s in Ponca city. That place is good. Thanks. Looks like high quality mature does have some value. I see a lake in my near future. Over and out!

Test of Time

Posted on July 13, 2016

Caught the end of an older movie.  I guess it is actually old enough to be considered a classic.  The movie “Turner & Hooch” was on the tube.  This was a hit movie back in the 80s.  It was a good movie then, and it still stands the test of time.  But now, when watching it, you find yourself thinking, “My goodness.  Who realized that this actor was going to go on to win multiple
