That the second best way to sound like a noob is to ask why robot and pants are censored?

Preserving Achewood is maybe worthy and all that, but somebody needs to pry this stuff from r. stevens before it is utterly bye-bye.

Or maybe not.

I felt so much guilt and shame that I had the pig turned into food last Tuesday. He walked over, all Oink...Grunt...Oink and we shot him in the head and cut his throat.

I guess I really displaced my uncertain feelings. I should probably work on that.

Something about how the absurd comedy and silly animals takes the edge off the all too sharp drama.

A spot on point. I'm not sure what a show with live action trying to take on these kinds of issues would look like, but I bet it would get run out of town in front of torches and pitchforks.

So I went home yesterday and found that the turn to Fall has put the older La Mancha goat, Gidget, into her first heat. Feistiness, lots of bleating, inflamed lady part stuff.

So now we gonna call the breeder and arrange to take her over to get her bone bone bone on in about 20 days.

It works out well, we've got her weight up over 70 lbs. and have been upping her grain and mineral intake so she should be in good shape to make some goat-kids.

Two interview this coming week! Nice.

Good Luck!

My long term project here at work paid off. HR created the internal position and I've applied to it. After five business days it can be closed and I'll receive the offer.

Then begin negotiations.

I've been working on this for a fuck*ng year. Tediously agitating!

Fair story: We made a little caravan to load livestock into the fair. I loaded up the sheep and goats in a truck bed pen and Bubba (yes, really!) pulled a 24' stock trailer for the steers and pigs. We got the goats and sheep loaded easy, you just walk them up and shove them in. The steer you halter up and walk in easy like. Pigs...fuck pigs.

We put a ramp up to walk them into the trailer and then we use hog boards to direct and box them in. Well, we got the last one up the ramp and when it went to turn the corner into the trailer it didn't like the truck load af angry swine and tried to back out. After chivvying six of the bastard beasts into the trailer I wasn't about to let this one start the process over so I shot my left arm out and straight armed that porker and grabbed it by the left ham and shoved it the rest of the way in.

The pig gladly went along with this plan because, in grabbing him by the ham and shoving, my left thumb went all the way to the base in his asshole. He even made a surprised little "GRUNT" as he hopped in.

About eight of the parents and kids there saw this and everyone generally lost their shit for about 30 seconds.

I went in and washed my hands, but people wiggled their damn thumbs at me and made 'oink oink' sounds all fair week.

I guess it was funny. Also, it didn't feel bad from my side of the deal.

OK, that was a pretty damn good season, again.

Now to wait another year!

Because a market animal sold through auction allows the 4H and FFA kids to fund their other projects. Mom and pops aren't supposed to just whip out the wallet for ever little thing.

Now, when 4H/FFA is over? I'll do what I damn well please (which will also include raising animals to slaughter and eat).

P.S. sent a pig and that shithead lamb to the butcher yesterday. Gonna eat good through the winter. Yesterday was the first day that screamy lamb was comfortable enough to shut up for long periods, if he knew what was coming, he probably would have kept screaming into the void.

Not with a wether (neutered male), they're either pets or food.

But yeah, that's part of the reason we have the La Mancha dairy goats coming along. Other-than-meat uses.

Welp, just finished off fair week. Had a good time, The Boy did well in showmanship and Agent #2 the goat did well in market judging. He sold at auction for $425, so this project went well.

Goats are hard, in that they are cute little goobers and over six months you can get attached to the good, sweet ones. So, selling him off was a little sad, he went to slaughter for market meat.

I bought a lamb at auction:

Lambs are cute and sweet, but kinda stupid and weird. This guy is a yeller. When we were traveling home he figured out he could see us through the back truck cab window, so he lined up where he could stare at us and scream-bleated every five seconds all the way home. Now, every time I go out back he scream-bleats his displeasure at me. However, he did shut up for 10 minutes this morning when I fed him.

Oh well, the butcher comes for him and the pig tomorrow...

The turkeys are 12 weeks old, so they've reached the point where there very loud and active, with all kinds of peeps, chirps and twitters from them when something riles them up. No gobbling yet, they need another couple of weeks for that to kick in.

Anyways, Spouse and the youngest boy like to walk across the yard and go "gooble gooble gooble" at them because they completely lose their birdy shit for about 30 seconds.

Turkeys are cool. I mean, I'm still going to slaughter and eat them, but they're cool.

(a 4H friend started a new AG program at a charter high school and her kids have turkeys as a project but the school won't allow them to slaughter on site. I'm going to host them to slaughter their birds, my price is, they do their bird then they do one of mine for extra learning practice. I'm not proud, I'll take child labour.)

I rode Geronimo all over the back lot again last night, he is really coming around. I can ride him with almost only my legs and body, no reining. It's pretty cool, I got him to respond to what I call 'opening the gate' where I straighten one knee and take the pressure off (the open gate) while pressing the other knee in a bit and shifting my weight onto the buttcheek on the side I want him to go towards.

It sounds really lengthy all typed out, but when you do a it bit it is very instinctual.

ALSO: he backs like a champ and will side pass if I stick my toe in his foreleg pit. That one was a surprise bonus.

Anyways, he is now paying for all his good boy apple treats in nose boops. Tomorrow I'm gonna see if he'll pony behind Oakie and start taking him out on the local trails to get him familiar.
