Happiness

Posted on July 23, 2013

     Happiness is that time of the month when you don’t have to worry about bills being in the mailbox.  It makes one happy to find checks in the mail.  True happiness are checks in the bank.      Another form of happiness in my world–no more goats to band this year, no more goats to dehorn this year.  Only one more set to wean.  Then the feed bill drops–does on pasture–not on hay

More stuff

Posted on July 20, 2013

Where else but an airport can a person lie down anywhere, use luggage for pillows, wear anything as long it is comfortable & you aren’t naked & spend piles on magazines & other crap you normally wouldn’t buy? We had a large time at Fenway. Red Sox/Yankees- the best rivalry in sports. Great night for a ball game. We watched BP and came close to getting a ball– it took a bad hop to the

Thoughts

Saw some cool historical stuff. Took a duck tour around the city & in the harbor. The USS Consitution, aka “Old Ironsides” is pretty cool to see. They also have a neat aquarium that has a heck of a penguin exhibit. I asked the ticket taker if penguin’s were on the menu. She laughed & said , “Sure.” She then realized that I meant to eat. I think a lot of taxi drivers are from

Journey

Posted on July 18, 2013

I’m currently on a journey. Not gone looking for goats, but supposedly on a vacation. I told the Dragon Lady that I want to go somewhere that is cooler than Nw Ok. that worked out well as it is cool & wet at home & hot as heck here. I’m not sure if I’m having fun yet, but have seen some cool stuff. Fenway Park and a few other parts of Boston. Found a good

A Classic!!

Posted on July 16, 2013

     I don’t know who did it.  I know that it has racial overtones.  I also realize that people lost their lives in the crash.  I know that it is not politically correct.  But I also know that it is dang funny.  If you haven’t seen it, then you need to…the you tube video of the San Francisco news station reporting the names of the pilots of the Asiana airlines flight 214.  The news

Horn Burning

Posted on July 16, 2013

     One of the most unenjoyable livestock management practices is the burning of horns.  It isn’t fun, it is a pain in the ass and it doesn’t always work.  There are times when I just know that I screwed one up and the head stays smooth and never has scurs.  Other times, I’ve smoked one and I just know that it was done right.  A month later, scurs and nubs start to appear.

Monday

Posted on July 15, 2013

     It is a beautiful Monday morning here in paradise.  No wind.  We got a 1/2″ of rain last night & this morning.  Duke has a new puppy.  Kela is in California.  The goats are fed.  And with the rain, I would imagine that I will have to use some scour-halt this evening.

Blame

Posted on July 15, 2013

      I don’t have any problems that I can blame on anybody else.  My problem’s are my own.  I can’t blame my parents as they did their job.  All they did was raise three boys on a way-limited budget & all three boys managed to find their way to find smoking hot wives that happened to be great mothers.  Find pictures of that on the chive.         Here is what

Turtle Pancakes

Posted on July 13, 2013

     No, they aren’t made out of turtles.  They are pancakes made to look like a turtle.  One big dollop of batter to make the body/shell, 4 feet, a head and a tail.  They look like turtles.  My Grandma Schneider always made us turtle pancakes.        Anytime there was a big event, Grandma made turtle pancakes for the kids.  For example, when I was a junior in high school, I had to

Change it up

Posted on July 10, 2013

If you have been doctoring a goat for the runs and you have used the same medicine for 3 days in a row with no improvement, then you better do something different.  Get a stool sample to the vet and see if you are dealing with worms, coccidi, some sort of bacteria/virusor a nutritional problem.  Don’t keep doing the same thing if it is not working. The extra time spent on checking a sample and
