     There are many different forms of retardation.  Some of it is more of a medical issue.  Some people would say that this goat deal has gotten retarded.  And then there are others that can just plain prove that we are retarded.  Enter Big Bill and myself.      We left my house Saturday morning headed to goat sales.  We stopped at Steve Simpson’s to look at goats.  Then we headed towards Perry to

Rain Terminology

Posted on August 10, 2013

     The worst word associated with rain is actually the lack of rain–DROUGHT.  Hopefully, we are seeing the end of this drought.  The end has to be close since Beaver actually got rain.        The other bad term associated with rain is FLOOD.  Tammy and I can tell you a thing or two about floods as we actually lost a house due to flooding back in the nineties.  It happened two years

Things everybody should see

Posted on August 09, 2013

This is just a list of stuff that everybody should see with their own eyes at least once.  Maybe even once a day. –That animal that just hits you where you go “Dang, I’m going to have to spend some jack to own that one.”  Could be a dog, goat, koala, steer, etc. –The deep, deep, dark, dark, blue water of the Pacific that you can just look down into and wonder just how deep

     Angus.  This isn’t a word of the day.  It is more an anology of the day.  Angus.  What do YOU think of when you hear “Angus”?  Me?  I think of the lead guitarist of AC/DC–Angus Young.  (and yes, there is a little thunderstruck playing right now).  Some think of really good cows.  The majority probably think of premium beef.  The Angus breed of cattle has done a tremendous job of marketing their brand

The importance of…

hitting the “save post” button.  As a result of not hitting the button last night, you, the readers have missed out on an incredibly well written piece.  It started to rain last night, so I sat down to write.  And write.  And write.  Then a power flash.  Then a power outage.  I wrote a tremendous piece full of social commentary, a tutorial piece on proper feeding/exercising instructions of goats complete with secret feed additives.  And

      It was a nice evening last night and a really nice morning today.   Noticed on an online auction that they have some genetics listed wrong.  The grand wether at 2013 OYE was a Freak On A Leash on a Hang 10 doe.  Ask Schneberger.  Hang 10 did NOT sire that wether.        I can’t hardly stand to watch espn or listen to espn on Xm radio right now.  I

     Last night, we had to deal with the down-side of getting rain–mosquitos.  We hadn’t seen many of them all summer, but they have now shown themselves.  It’s only fitting, as they can hang with all of the flies and these dang grasshoppers.          Time to start getting goats broke to lead and show.  It is 2 months away to the Tulsa state fair.  Time to get to work.  Tis the

Fifteen. In years, that is a decade plus five more years. After more than fifteen years, the Dragon Lady worked her last day for Chesapeake Energy. She parted on good terms. She had enough driving for awhile. She had a really good run there and has a lot of fond memories. It’s tough to work at one place for 15 years, especially while driving a LOT the last 8 years. What’s next? I’m waiting to

     It has been rather humid the past week and a half in this part of the world.  Goats tend to back off of feed when it is humid.  If you watch the doe herd, they will lay around more when the humidity is high.  Kids will just about cut their feed consumption in half.  The thing that all goat breeders/showers should remember is that theses animals come from a very dry climate.  And

     Let’s get random like a wandering pot bellied pig.  Who knows where it is going next?  (By the way, I saw one tonight)  Talk about random crap.  I’m a mile and a half south of Fargo, OK on my way home tonight, listening to Winger and is that a dog, or a….I think it is… a….WTH?….Is that a…holy Batman, that is a pig going out of the ditch into that yard towards that
