Thoughts from Kelln

We’ve had a couple of sets of triplets born in the past couple of days.  Luckily only 2 of each survived.   But one thing about a lot of sets of triplets is that one or all of them will be spraddle legged for several hours.  They just can’t seem to get their legs underneath themselves.  Some of this is a result of triplets being all tucked up inside together.  Some of it may be

It is truly amazing at how close a yipping coyote can sound like it is sitting right on your front porch.  3:54 am this morning and I was outside with a rifle that has a light mounted on it.  I first thought the critter was in the front yard, then by the mailbox but as it turned out he was sitting down by the north pond.  They can throw that voice out there. Another amazing

Sale Over

Posted on April 11, 2016
      The Banners and Backdrops sale is done and in the books.  Personally, I would call it a success.  Duke and I got to Perry on Friday afternoon.  We had planned on being there earlier, but it just didn’t happen.  We got setup, unloaded, fed and watered then found a hotel.  Tyke, the Gambler, Duke and I made a dash over towards Morrison to the Ring Family compound.  Eric and his brother Michael

Friday Fun Day

Posted on April 8, 2016
No school today but plenty to do–at school and at home.  Headed to Perry to get things ready for the Banners & Backdrops Sale.  Ring’s are cooking quail tonight.  Duke and I ready to hit some bird.   Saturday will be show and sale.  There will be a really good set of goats at this event.  Not many bucks, but the quality will be top shelf.  There will be some elite wethers and doe kids.

Where to begin?  i know that I am behind on this blog.  My fault.  Let’s ramble. Happy birthday to a couple of cool chicks–Chesley Comstock(18) and Mindi Clark(??).  We look forward to continued great things from Chesley Comstock.  And as for DR. Mindi Clark–cheers to another birthday to my favorite daughter’s best ag teacher.  These two ladies always put me in a better mood (not that anybody could tell).  I love being around super successful

      The winds were back with a vengeance on Tuesday.  Unfortunately, a fire got started north of Woodward.  It is still going.  Supposedly, a couple of high lines whipping in the wind sparked and started the fire.  We’ve got several friends that live near where the fires started.  One of those families is Scott and Chesley Comstock and Scott’s parents.  Luckily, they are all fine.  I do know that there has been a

Buyers and Bidders

Posted on April 5, 2016
I enjoy watching the pshycology involved with the art of bidding during an auction.  There are lots of emotions that can happen in a short period of time during an auction.   Hoping for a miracle–This bidder has an addiction to owning a good animal, but they know that they aren’t going to get it done.  This is the type that bids at 8:05 am on an online auction and then spends the rest of

Banners & Backdrops Sale

Posted on April 4, 2016
       There are a few high quality goats selling tonight in the online Banners & Backdrops sale.  The live version of this sale will go down this saturday, April 9, at Perry, OK.  I’ve seen several sets of goats that will be selling there.  There will be a really deep set of wethers, several top shelf doe kids, a donor quality yearling or two and at least one wicked buck prospect.    

“Kind Of” April Fool’s Day Sale

Posted on April 1, 2016
  Huge thank you to all that bid, bought, called, texted, acted interested or anything else involving the “Kind Of” April Fool’s Day online sale.  I am truly thankful for the interest.  I had more phone calls and texts regarding this sale than any that we have ever had.  The phone has had trouble staying charged.  Again, THANK YOU! 12 lots went to 9 different states.  Some were new buyers that I have talked to.

Hump Day

      Wednesday has been here and is on the way out.  Another dark night.  But that is to be expected.  Yesterday was a quick trip to Alva for the NWOSU FFA Interscholastics.  We only took a crew of 8th graders that wanted to compete in the Entomology contest.  These “buggers” did well for their first time as they picked up a 2nd place piece of hardware.  Then back to school.  For those of
