Thoughts from Kelln

     Quite possibly my favorite day.  It doesn’t matter if I am working in the private sector (making $), as a public servant(not much $ but….WTF was I thinking) or for just working for myself (Oh, how I miss May -July of 2014), Thursday is probably my favorite day.  Why? Well, most road trips start on Thursday evening.  We are real close to the weekend.  You can feel it.  Only one more day till

      Are they really worth a 1,000 words or a thousand $s?  Yes and Yes.  But it still depends on the seller.  I can personally give you accounts of both sides of the story.  Look at Joe Dirt’s semen prices.  He doesn’t set the world on fire.  Why? Because there isn’t a good picture of him and at this point in his career, who needs one?  His track record compares favorably to most

There wasn’t many items that I truly missed about teaching. But when of the things that I did miss was the numerous trips to Stillwater. Especially, since Kela graduated, I haven’t had many reasons to make it to the best town in Oklahoma. On this fine morning, I find myself sitting at the hotel, waiting to go compete on campus. Last night was fine outdoors dining at Eskimo Joe’s. Of course, the waiter had to

About Time

Posted on October 20, 2014

     Remember that bull?  The semen got really high, then his calves showed up and the semen got real cheap.   Actually, Dirt and Rumour have been standing around thinking that it is About Time for me to open the gates and let them have some action.  Their day is rapidly approaching.  I have waiting to get to the last week of March before starting to kid.   That way we are completely done

       You mean that a blog is supposed to be a daily deal?  Not here it ain’t.  The terms out-of-time, un-inspired and SOL come to mind.  Although, I do realize that my last post was the past Friday and it might have had something to do with Motley Crue.         Yes.  It was LOUD!!    Real LOUD!!   What?  Have I ever said, “If it’s too loud, then you’re too

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
