Ben has such a great personality. He looks like he is having a conversation with the egret. I noticed his eye looks red in the picture. Hope it is okay.

Ben's new penmate has one too - as long as they are too few to mention…

I wonder how much Ben would be paid to be the mascot. Why don't you call and investigate about what is involved. He is certainly gentle and healthy enough and good looking enough. Check it out and let us know.

IMHO Ben is your friend and he is really attached to you. The Field Lab is all he knows. I would hate to see him used as a mascot and possibly see the two of you separated.

Ben is a country boy of the great Chihuahuan Desert. None of that noisy city living - and banging drums and brash sounds at football games for Ben. Ben and John are now partners in a great life experience - that few of us live. IMO, being a mascot is for a city longhorn - who doesn't already have such a great life.

I asked Ben what he thought about the prospect...he said he would do it but only if he wouldn't have to change his name.

I believe Ben is in it for the long haul at his present vacation spot..
John would never exploit him to be a mascot. Just my opinion.:-)
