Not your night

Posted on October 09, 2014

     For those of you wanting, hoping for a classic sideways post on here….well, it’s not your night.  I’m not mad or upset.  I’m just tired.  I had somebody tell me today that the blogs happened more often and way more interesting when I had fewer goats and I wasn’t teaching.  My friend…you would be correct.          Tuesday was a day that will make any ex-ag teacher cringe and current ones

Home Again

Posted on October 07, 2014

     I went back to Tulsa on Saturday morning.  Had some students showing heifers, plus I had to pick up grassboards, news boards and floriculture exhibits.  All exhibited very well.  By the way, I like showing grass boards, news boards and other state fair kind of exhibits.        I got back in time to watch the 4th div. of the jr. doe show.  I don’t normally care to watch many doe shows,

     Yes, I came home from the Tulsa State Fair.  Took care of my own stock tonight, check them again in the morning and then head east.  Here’s what I know FOR SURE from the 2014 Tulsa State Fair.   1—Without a doubt, there is one goat showman in Oklahoma (period, she’s better than whovever you want to name) that is better than the rest.  I’m not bragging on one, I’m just stating facts.

Tulsa State Fair

Posted on October 03, 2014

Congrats to the Stottlemyre family on a big win and very successful show. Good goat(s). Congrats to Bree Taylor on an excellent job showing. The Poe crew had a very good show. Chancery Bruce made the sale. Tonto has been the easiest feeding goat that I have ever held. It was fun watching her develop confidence as a showman. Watch out. As for the rest of the show, it was the worst day of my

Friday Nights

Posted on September 27, 2014

     The first scary thing on this Friday night is the fact that I posted a pic on facebook for the 2nd night in a row.  My dad took a pic of his tv screen that had Kela’s name listed in the credits of “The Amazing Race”.  I guess this deal is for real.  She isn’t just hanging it out in Cali.  She actually has a job.  Excuse me while I spark up “Sweet

Thursday night..OWW!!

Posted on September 26, 2014

       It is 9:20 p.m. at my piece of paradise.  I wish that I was in Stillwater on this fine evening, but I have a couple of crappy jobs that currently keep me tied to home.  My parents are in the stands tonight and I hope this game looks better in real life than it sounds on the radio.  I may just have to slam my head in a sliding glass door if

      “Oohh?!”, said the casual everyday reader of this blog.  “Should I continue?” And the writer answered, “Yes.  Come on in.  The water is fine.”       Yes, we are going to discuss a little religion.  But in typical form, it will be a different side of religion.  And there won’t be a collection plate.        I was very fortunate to be raised in a family setting that was/is heavily

     To start with, congrats to the Foraker family in Kansas.  They had a pretty good run at the Kansas Jr. Livestock Show.  Blake was the champion goat showman and Kaci was 3rd overall.  Then in the goat show, Kaci showed the res. grand wether.  Blake had a res. div. 2 wether.  Then in the sheep show, Blake had the res. grand wether lamb and once again, was champion lamb showman.  These kids can

State Fair Traditions

Posted on September 22, 2014

      I have been accused of being superstitious, somewhat sentimental and even a traditionalist.  I have “routines” as to where and when we eat at certain shows.  I may wear certain clothes/caps on proper days at a given show.  But the most traditional goat show that I attend is the State Fair of Ok.         1st tradition is that we always eat lunch at Earl’s on Friday.  Cheddar burger with
