Big Tom here was King of the “Killing Fields.” Beard 10 1/2″ Spurs 1 1/4″ and sharp. Wt approx 20lbs– Shot at 100 yds with an Assault rifle–AR-15. Should have taken a picture of the gun!!
Our FBF naturalist found this beatuiful coyote sleeping in the forest. He has consulted many profesionals on how to care for Coyotes. Some have even said he is a “coyote wisperer.” Notice how he demonstrates the proper way to hold a sleeping coyote.
It has been another increadable trip to Froggy Bottom Farm for Labor Day 2006. We have been riding Plasma cars, shelling Buckeyes, playing mini-tennis, catching bugs, reading fairy stories, muscrat watching, carp fishing, and of course eating great food with lemon cream sherbert for desert. Matt has continued to perfect the MSC and all the grand kids have been sleeping on blow up beds in Mur-Lily and Papa-Doc’s room.
Got Papa-Doc smoothie?
