I loaded up a few kids that needed to find a new home. I drove to the piece of paradise west of Fairview. Two sundays ago, Duke and I loaded the majority of our doe herd. I can tell you for a fact that 38 mature does will fit in a 6×16 stock trailer. I left 9 does at Fairview. Yesterday, I made it back to pick them up. Of course, they were as far away as possible at 2:30 in the afternoon and it was hot. No gator, no 4 wheeler. Just my fat ass trekking across the cedar canyons to find them. I got them sorted and loaded and then I headed to Perry.
This was my first visit to the Perry goat sale. Got 4 does and 4 kids unloaded. They told me that they would be in pen 44B. I asked if that was the high dollar pen. They laughed and said, “All of pens are high dollar pens.” We’ll see about that.
I hadn’t been to Perry in a year. So, I called Milligan to look at his new additions. Holy crap! He has spent a pile on panels, carports, feeders, etc. I feel his pain. Very functional set of facilities. Millligan and I agree that good facilities, fences, etc. are a MUST for raising goats in Oklahoma. It just makes things better.
The welcoming committee was there in full force. Big I was in a great mood. Elliott was moving sticks around. I didn’t have time to stay and they had appointments, so all parties were on good behavior.
I made it back to the Kompound at Fargo in time to look at a wether fighting kidney stones. My question is “How come it is always a good one that has stones?” Its never a common one that has problems. Oh well.
