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.

I am aware that you can't get goat milk from a male. My point was, why buy males when you could become a goat cheese lunatic?

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.

Hey all. Been a bit since my last update and I'm afraid I haven't made much progress in the interim, other than to make the decision to divide the archive into volumes. Naturally, I feel this will be more amenable to printing out and storing on the shelf, rather than the 800+ page monster it was going to be as one volume. Again, these are intended to supplement the published Dark hoss volumes, so my archive will not include any comics published prior to 05/07/2002, nor will it include The Great Outdoor Fight. They will also only include freely available material and nothing from any of the paid archives.

Attached are links to the Table of Contents/Title Page and the Archive itself.

The volume division does present the unique issue of requiring individual titles for each volume. I'd love for you guys to help me come up with titles, sourced from iconic dialogue, etc and such in the strips within. For those unaware, the Dark hoss volumes are:

Vol 1: The Great Outdoor Fight
Vol 2: Worst Song, Played on Ugliest Guitar
Vol 3: A Home for Scared People

My ideas:

Vol 4: A Sojourn into Destiny
Vol 5: The Martha Stewart of Condoms

Any suggestions to improve these, or ideas for future titles?

Thanks guys! Hoping to put in more work on the archive soon.

You could solve that sad goat problem by becoming one of those crazy people who make goat cheese and soap and so on out of goat milk, couldn't you?

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...

Downsides to moving to a cabin in the woods? Bears maybe.

How is that a downside? Bears are awesome!
