Big Sales Weekend

Posted on June 26, 2015

     This is the biggest goat sales weekend in Oklahoma.  It starts Saturday at Noon in Norman, OK.  Helms, Ralph Shafer, Cramblet and myself will be selling at noon.  There will be a killer set of wethers and a really nice set of does.  I’m taking 5 wethers–4 Rumours and 1 Dirt.  I like all 5 of them.  I think all 5 are premium sale quality with a couple of them having a chance

Not my writing!

The following is not my writing.  This has been on facebook and every time I read it, well, I laugh like I am in grade school and chocolate milk comes out of my nose.  I love it.  If you have facebook, then search Best Craigslist ad ever.  They ain’t lying.  Here you go.   “For sale: one early 80’s Craftsman riding lawn mower with an 11 horse power engine and 30? mowing deck. Bottom line, this

Weeds vs. Time

Posted on June 24, 2015

     I wish that weeds could equal time.  I know that I am running out of time, but I don’t seem to be running out of weeds.  I can spray, pull, hoe, whatever, they just keep coming.  Time, on the other hand, just seems to get shorter by the day.  I look at the calendar and realize that we are currently dealing with the longest daylight hours of the year.  Yet, I still need

     Another weekend, another trip south.  Braden, Duke and I decided to break the old gray goat of a pickup out of the barn for another run.  It ran like it was trying to prove something.  We made it to several farms and several sales.  Saw some really good stock.  Bought several.  Got out ran on several that I really wanted.  At least those will stay in Texas.        Gallagher’s put on

     Your president is a moron.  He actually said, “Mass violence like this doesn’t happen in other advanced countries.”  France, England, Germany, Norway, etc.  Not too mention terms like ISIS and all of the terrors that have gone on in the Middle East and in numerous African countries.         Thank goodness I get to attend a bunch of goat sales this weekend.  I will get to be a part of mild

     I don’t like talking on the phone and it is a well known fact that I am limited at texting.  I have had lots of calls this week and they all focus towards the same two questions. 1–Is there another Rumour in this Helms’ online buck sale? 2–How many wethers have you already got out of Helms?      I don’t work for Kenneth Helms, I don’t get paid by Kenneth Helms but

     Sunday and Monday brought flush dates to this part of the world.  Jodi Seelke scheduled a flush at her place.  On Sunday, Seelkes, Schovanecs and Milligan flushed does.  On Monday, Poe and I flushed does.  It was a typical flush.  Some went well, some not so well.  And it all cost money.       I wasn’t there on Sunday, but I wish that I could have seen and heard the excitement.  A

Saturday Night Thoughts

Posted on June 14, 2015

      I was pleased to be asked to sell at the Friday Night Fever sale.  When Mock asked, I told him I didn’t have much that would be ready.  I didn’t lie.  I took a doe kid that I thought was worth $2-3K.  She brought $3k.  I took a green Joe Dirt wether and a little Rumour wether that was still hitting the tit.  These two sold cheap.  But they went to good

    I have limited time, limited desire and too many things racing through my skull.  It was a good day, but I am not near done for the night.  Have a good one….and a better tomorrow.  It’s all good.

     Tonight was a really good night in paradise.  A buddy of mine was home for a few days, so we met for supper at, you guessed it, Charlie’s.  Another great American came in for supper, so we joined forces for an hour or two.  Great stories.        The Dragon Lady and I cruised back home.  I parked a pickup or two inside the barn and shut the doors.  The stars are
