Things you hope your granny never hears you say

Holy hell. No that wasn't one.

I clipped my yearling today. First, that's like nailing jello to the wall.
Second, I tried to do this while milking.
Why would I do this to myself, after getting up at 2 am?

Well, when you run things on a generator you combine as many chores as you can. And I have to get these goats clipped.

So here I am trying to clip this squiggly squirmy KICKING bitch, all the while trying not to suck the teats off the milkers.
I'm sure the phrase "Nasty Skank" And "Scum sucking Whore" fell from my lips more than once. "Kick my face and I'll break that fucking leg" was uttered a few times too. Funny, as much as she hated getting her legs clipped, when I prepared for the BIG fight, clipping her face, she LOVED that. In fact she fell asleep with her chin in my hand.

Aren't you glad I love my goats?

I have a funny about taking my mother to the China Buffet (all you can eat Chinese) but I'm too tired. I'm just hoping I don't forget any of it.

Yeah for me it was my little April kid. Shouldn't have been so much trouble.
Yeah, right.
Like trying to clip Brownie.
However, she is done.

I have 4 more. I'm thinking then can cook, I mean... be hairy.

I have one 12" fan. If you have others, we should probably take them. J R said it was pretty warm down there but they were getting a cool breeze in the dairy barn, the sheep barn he said was hot.

Now it should rain. LOL
