Thoughts from Kelln


Posted on May 27, 2016

We hadn’t been as wet as some goat herders, but we haven’t been dry.  Now, we are bonafide wet.  It has rained here 4 of the last 5 days.  Not a lot of rain, but enough.  Yesterday brought a pile of wind, some hail, rain and tornado warnings.  We had a basement full of kids as there was some on their way home from Woodward and this was a close shelter through the storm.  It

Two 4 Tuesday

Posted on May 25, 2016

Back in the day, KATT radio out of OKC used to do a Two 4 Tuesday–two songs, back 2 back from the same artist.  This was pre-XM, Pandora or all of the other neat stuff that the kids have now.  In the early 90s, while working at the OSU meat lab, we used to love Two 4 Tuesday.  Otie might be pining for some Lynyrd Skynyrd and when it hit, it was liking winning the

Been on the road for several days.  My co-pilot and I headed out early Friday morning.  We met at Schneberger’s, looked at goats and then headed south.  We made it to Jacksboro for lunch.  I hadn’t been to Dairyland in years.  I’m glad that we made the stop there.  They serve up some good stuff there.  One of the waitresses took a look at  Milligan’s hair and remembered that she needed to make a hair

Random–do it, to it

Posted on May 19, 2016

This blog is supposed to be about random Kelln thoughts.  Let’s do it, to it.   First, I don’t plan on writing about hard pulls on goats for a while.  Why?  The next doe due after I wrote that post,  I pulled a kid.  Alive, albeit a doe kid.  The next one.  I had to pull the first one.  Lost him.  But, upon pulling that one, the next one presented itself.  I helped him out.

Hard Pull

Posted on May 17, 2016

It was past time to start kidding again.  Two days past time.  This fact alone was making me a bit nervous.  Now throw in the fact that it was a first time doe, although she is a 2 year old.  Finally, she was in labor on Monday evening.  It was a hard pull.  A very hard pull. C section was crossing my mind.  Luckily, Muret was here.  He held the horns while I ran the

Useless… as tits on a boar hog.   as a one legged man in a donkey kicking contest. as an ejection seat on a helicopter. as non-portable sheds, panels, feeders, etc. at some goat ranches.  as a white crayon. as a corgi for a guard dog. as Ron Simonson after several days of slaying fish.   as a wire panel between two does.   Forgive me…but….useless as balls on a priest. as tits on a

No Shows

Posted on May 13, 2016

It is a known fact that I like to listen to good music.  I don’t care what the genre is, as long as it is good.  I had the opportunity to go watch the Shattuck Jr & Sr High School choirs perform their spring concert tonight. Way talented bunch of kids.  And the adults that help are obviously doing something right.  It is amazing that these meatheads can sound that good.  And they have the

I just spent time on the Socially Transmitted Disease known as facebook.  Dang, that deal can be addictive.  However, there is some cool stuff if you can stand to sort through all of the crap. I scroll through looking for goat, cattle or pig pics.  I even stop to look at some wicked cool sheep pics.  However, the best parts are the people stuff.  I had to stop and read a post about Tim Crissup.

I’ve got a headache

Posted on May 10, 2016

RUSM?  Your federal government is wasting time and dollars to sue North Carolina over this whole bathroom deal.  Jeeminy christmas….I now have a headache.  This crap is simple people.  I don’t care what you believe.  And I will not tell you what to believe.  But do NOT tell me what I should believe.  I think that I will just step away from the keyboard and stand there…for a minute or so….shaking my head.   And

May the 8th

Posted on May 09, 2016

     Yes, it has been a day or 4 since I have hit the keyboard.  For one, Duke and I were hooked up on the 5th.  It was a screwed up day at school, so he got some welding done.  I used the detention kids to get some work done at the ag farm.  Good Trade.  They didn’t want to stare at homework that they were not going to work on and I needed
