I started a new blog today to post information about our rabbitry. Just yesterday we brought home a trio of Jersey Woolies to start our own little herd. We've joined the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) and the National Jersey Wooly Rabbit Club (JNWRC). And registered our little rabbitry as the Sparrow Grass Rabbitry.

Coyote & Crane
So strange! On a detour from our grocery trip we came across 3 young coyotes in the road (leading from the stream up to our house). When I slowly drove up two of them hopped off into the corn field, but one sat and looked at us and then became distracted with chasing grasshoppers!
I'd stopped the car and he didn't run off so I became worried that he would sit around and a farmer would come by and shoot him. So I got out of the car and clapped my hands at him and tried to shoo him off..
He backed a couple of rows into the corn and sat down to look at me... Like I was just the most interesting and unusual thing he'd ever seen!
I then drove up the hill to our house, picked up my camera, and returned to the bridge and found the following...
One coyote was crossing the bridge and I tried to get a photo, but it vanished into the weeds at the opposite side. We drove on across to where he'd gone & when I looked back at the other side of the bridge there was another sitting at the edge of the corn field looking at me.
As I returned (again) to the car my daughter yelled out... "Another coyote!!" Sure enough here came another coyote running up from the creek toward the bean field, just like the one I'd already photographed. I wasn't as quick this time and couldn't catch him (her?) in action... But it stopped at the edge of the field to sit down and look at me. So I did manage to get a couple of pictures of it!

Here is an image of one wall in progress what is soon to be of my son's new room...
The theme is "prehistoric oceans" - My son has always loved dinosaurs. I hope to do the theme justice... Even if it is on a brick wall. Ahhhh!
