Never a dull moment on the farm
We heard a thud about 5 am we let Vanessa and Sam out back and we looked out front and sure enough a coyote had one of our Spanish black hiertage turkeys.
We jumped up got dressed and went running chasing the coyote around our ten acres. Victoria our 13 year old poodle is the only experienced coyote catcher and she is not up to the task anymore.
I do not have the DNA to kill so I have always had family and friends do the slaughter here on the farm , but I have always helped with the processing but never totally by myself. When the going got tuff I grabbed the tree loopers to help. I could not just waste our farm fresh turkey.
