     It is real hard to put in print the sounds that have come out of my mouth the past couple of hours.  Most of the sounds have been un-intelligible.  Some are happy sounds and the rest just weren’t meant for children, mothers or grandmothers.  Let’s pick a few words. HUMBLED–Thanks to all the calls, texts, emails, etc.  I will be honest, it can be a pain in the ass, but this deal makes

      There is no doubt that getting the right buck can change a breeding program.  A person just needs to identify what they need and what they can spend.  Study the genetics and decide if a given buck is the right one to fit your program.  If it is, pull the trigger.  If it doesn’t feel right, then don’t do it.  But, just realize that waiting can cost you money.

Locked Up

Posted on March 31, 2014

     Thanks to all the calls and visitors about the goat offering that we have on April 1.  This modern marvel technology that I call an iPhone has just about locked up.  I don’t know if I have been talking to more serious buyers or not, but the etiquitte of the calls, emails and texts has definetly improved the past few days.  If you have questions the next day or two, call me and

     Thursday is becoming my favorite day.  The day before was HUMP day.  Tomorrow is friday and everything gets better on friday.  But, Thursday has things that bounce.  Both of my brothers can dribble a basketball better than I, but neither are as good at things that bounce as I am.  I like it.        Contracts–If I need to sign one to show a goat, I’m out.  Goats–contracts–they don’t bounce.

Good Feeling

     Today, March 26, was the first due date for our next set of kids.  Bred to be after OYE but still in March.  This morning–nothing.  Got home this evening.  Nothing.  An hour later–1 kid.  Three hours later–two does had dominoed and we had 7 kids.  Yep, do the math.  That would be 7 divided by 2.  3 on one–4 on the other.          We all know that I despise a

Where to begin?

Posted on March 26, 2014

       Tried like heck to leave work in time to make it to Duke’s baseball game(s) tonight.  Had several calls that said that they were on their way to look at the goats for sale.  I detoured quickly as the first one is a younger one that dang sure knows good livestock and I will always try to take care of a kid that is trying to forge their way in any facet

      I used 5 days of vacation in order to attend the OYE.  Left before 5 am last Monday morning and got home late Friday night.  Although it was termed a “vacation”, it wasn’t exactly relaxing.  Rolled right into a weekend consisting of washing, shearing, clipping, photoing and showing goats to people.  Throw in moving does into kidding barn and there hasn’t been any down time.  Now, it’s back to work.

     For those of you that don’t know, OYE stands for the Oklahoma Youth Expo.  I will put this show up against any of the majors in terms of depth of quality.  Why?  One reason is that there is not a more retarded breed of show addicts than OKIES.  Two, the Texans can spread out amongst a pile of majors, large districts and high paying counties.  Add in, that in Texas, if you win
