It’s a Great Day to be a Goat!!

The sun is shining! The goats are excited to be outside enjoying this very pleasant moment in the sun and hay!

This is Bunny! Appropriately named for his beautiful long white ears!

This is Spot!

A lot of my animals are named spot! I think it’s a wonderful name although I didn’t name him. The family that raised these three billy goats named him and I think it is fitting!

The youngest of the three goats is Young’un! Yes he’s the youngest of the three goats! He’s learning to bark at the dogs…who think they are goats!

I have never been around goats but I have to say that I am really enjoying them! They do a spectacular job keeping the fence line under control! They are also very entertaining!! I’m sure that I will have a lot more to tell you about in the coming months when things really begin to bloom!

Is it Thawing???

It looks like a thaw is in the making! Temperature this morning was about 10 degrees according to my outdoor thermometer…but it’s on the rise…slowly and the ice is receding….slowly…

Stay warm my fellow ranchers and keep your eye on the temperature tonight because my friend Eric Berger at says it will be cold until this weekend when we may be able to put on our shorts and sun bathe!!

Brrrrrr…ing in 2018!!

Wow! Temperature in the teens!!! Sleet and snow continue to be in the forecast! But chores do not stop! Out checking on water and animals!!!!

The sky really looks as though more might be on the way! It’s going to be a pipe breaking cold!! Stay warm y’all!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Merry Christmas from all of us here on the ranch to all of you!!! And best wishes for a happy 2018!!!

Here she is!!! My last calf for 2017 out of Diamond! She was born a few days ago but she is already running and bucking through the pasture!!

A Snowy Texas Home on the Range!


She’s telling #Harvey to moove on outta here!!!

Preparing for Hurricane Harvey!!

Preparing for a hurricane is no easy task!!! All loose objects must be secured….and all animals sheltered!

The goats have given me their approval!! They love being able to hang out in the barn!
