Thoughts from Kelln

Random Sunday

Posted on April 07, 2014

      I’m pretty sure that Barnthouse can get from Blackwell to Fargo quicker than I can.  He and his co-pilot made good time.  They picked up “Blood Pressure”  and took him to Kay County.  I like the name for this bad-ass buck and I am excited to see the future results of “Blood Pressure”.  I’ve been on the buying end of these kind of high dollar deals, and they will make your blood

Talladega Nights

Posted on April 06, 2014

      I’ve got more good friends than the law should allow.  Like Ricky Bobby in Tallagega Nights, I’ve got friends, like Cal Naughton Jr. that would help put out the “imaginary” fire.  There is a not-so-old proverb about a “good friend will bail you out of jail, but a best friend will be sitting in the cell next to you saying “Damn!  That was fun!”  I have some of those kind of friends

What day is it?

Posted on April 04, 2014

     Yes, it is that day again.  Thursday.  More specifically, things that bounce Thursday.  And on this bouncy evening, I am currently watching a professional doe at work.  B20 is a professional doe.  She is out of Kela’s original kid crop back in ’06.  She is a paint doe that is sired by Harley.  These Harley does are way good mothers.  They literally go into labor for less than an hour, then go to

     It is real hard to put in print the sounds that have come out of my mouth the past couple of hours.  Most of the sounds have been un-intelligible.  Some are happy sounds and the rest just weren’t meant for children, mothers or grandmothers.  Let’s pick a few words. HUMBLED–Thanks to all the calls, texts, emails, etc.  I will be honest, it can be a pain in the ass, but this deal makes

Bucks

Posted on April 01, 2014

      There is no doubt that getting the right buck can change a breeding program.  A person just needs to identify what they need and what they can spend.  Study the genetics and decide if a given buck is the right one to fit your program.  If it is, pull the trigger.  If it doesn’t feel right, then don’t do it.  But, just realize that waiting can cost you money.

Locked Up

Posted on March 31, 2014

     Thanks to all the calls and visitors about the goat offering that we have on April 1.  This modern marvel technology that I call an iPhone has just about locked up.  I don’t know if I have been talking to more serious buyers or not, but the etiquitte of the calls, emails and texts has definetly improved the past few days.  If you have questions the next day or two, call me and

Bouncey

Posted on March 28, 2014

     Thursday is becoming my favorite day.  The day before was HUMP day.  Tomorrow is friday and everything gets better on friday.  But, Thursday has things that bounce.  Both of my brothers can dribble a basketball better than I, but neither are as good at things that bounce as I am.  I like it.        Contracts–If I need to sign one to show a goat, I’m out.  Goats–contracts–they don’t bounce.

Good Feeling

Posted on March 27, 2014

     Today, March 26, was the first due date for our next set of kids.  Bred to be after OYE but still in March.  This morning–nothing.  Got home this evening.  Nothing.  An hour later–1 kid.  Three hours later–two does had dominoed and we had 7 kids.  Yep, do the math.  That would be 7 divided by 2.  3 on one–4 on the other.          We all know that I despise a

Where to begin?

Posted on March 26, 2014

       Tried like heck to leave work in time to make it to Duke’s baseball game(s) tonight.  Had several calls that said that they were on their way to look at the goats for sale.  I detoured quickly as the first one is a younger one that dang sure knows good livestock and I will always try to take care of a kid that is trying to forge their way in any facet
