Four letter words

Posted on March 03, 2014

    The first four letter word today is LEXI.  As in Lexi Vanderwork.  She’s had a pretty good year showing goats.  She started it off by winning the State Fair, then she won a showmanship division at the Lone Star Elite as well as placing high.  Then she won a couple of classes and was reserve grand at the Champion’s Choice.  Now, she has shown the grand wether at Woodward District.

      No more Olympics on the tube, so I am going through some withdrawls.  But it got me to thinking about things that ought to be an Olympic event. –Parallel parking a ’93 Chevy van –Changing diapers (I wouldn’t be very good) –Trailer backing (Tyke would be a non-qualifier) –Finding the tv remote control –Hitting the snooze button on the alarm clock–eyes must stay closed. –Watermelon home run contest. –Getting a does horns

Emails from LA

Posted on February 27, 2014

      The following is an email that I recieved from some girl in LA.  As you read it, remember that this is my daughter and there are some borderline and some over-the-line smart ass remarks that were directed at me and to not be taken literal.   I like to to do a deep study at beginning of every year and see what movies are currently in production and this year I found

This morning

Posted on February 26, 2014

     If you need a fix of the crap that comes out of my mind, then you need to go to the message board of  I spent too much time on there this morning replying to a post instead of writing pertinent info on this wealth of knowledge website.

     One of the biggest pains in dealing with does is trimming hooves.  Some does never need their hooves trimmed, some need it 2 or 3 times a year.  It isn’t fun. It is time consuming and I usually end up using a lot of unacceptable language, only get a couple of does done, get mad and then go do something else.        I have found a new way to take care

Like the Restaurant

Posted on February 22, 2014

TGIFriday.  I’ve had some good times in several TGIFriday restaurants over the years, all involving goat people.  Kela and Danielle Litzenberger always made Susan and I take them to TGIFridays in OKC and Tulsa while at goat shows.        The weekend is upon us and I am a little stoked (even though I am going to work tomorrow).  I’ve got lots to do, a desire to get things done and a chance to

     It looks like the bar has raised for online sales.  I looked at the reuslts of that California sale earlier this week and I looked at the TX doe sale for next week.  Well presented animals, properly photographed and with good write ups.  My hat’s off to those crews for doing their homework on how to do an online sale.        Schneberger’s aren’t fitted up, but the goats read honest and

      I’m finally back home.  I’m a little bit tired, little bit jet-lagged, ready for my own remote control, my own keyboard but most of all just glad to be home and check the stock.  Everything was in good health and the warmer weather has treated them well.        This was a good trip to Phoenix.  No goats or other livestock, but a good trip, nonetheless.  I spent several hours on

I just spent a day at work, on vacation, digging in the dirt with new equipment that belongs to somebody else. RUSM?! I was paid to do my job. How many kids just want to dig in the dirt? I did this all day and was on the payroll.

100 degrees difference

Posted on February 17, 2014

Another day, another trip. But this time I don’t need a coat. I’m sitting near Phoenix and the temp is about 82 degrees. Compared to that negative crap I saw and felt in Moline the other day, this is alright. Over a 100 degrees temp difference. I know the goats at home are liking the warmer temps and the snow is melted & into the ground. My herdsman, Duke, has things under control. He likes
