    Oh his horns are enormous! how does he hold them up? Are they heavy?

    • TheFieldLab

      His head and horns probably weigh about 200 lbs. How does he hold them up? His neck muscles have strengthened as his horns have grown He will be 5 years old on July first this year.

    Thanks for another great video, John. I really enjoyed it.
    Ben is one awesome, handsome guy.
    You may have noticed that I have always been a great fan of your wacky, ingenious, creativity. I'm still in awe of the "Bike-O'-Warsher", "Pepino", the "Greenhouse", the "Solar Oven", etc.
    All the 'critters' around your place make it pretty special, as well.
    Good Vibrations

    I'm a new subscriber and I think your little film pieces are great. You obviously have a passion for film, and you have a good sense for setting a scene. The only recommendation I have would be to get rid of the news caster intro theme. It takes away from your otherwise tranquil and earthy atmosphere.

    I see your channel growing fast into something special. Keep it up.

    I can tell you, with all the fidget spinner videos trending at the moment, if you were to make a video of two fidget spinners spinning on each one of the bulls horns, you've got yourself another viral video.

      I just saw at a bday party, my fifth grader cousin showing me his fidget spinner and how he is getting straight A's now because it helps his stress, etc. Now I'll have to go see the videos, who knew? 8-) I need all the brain help I can get!
      He said he fidgets with it during a test. Helps his FOCUS.

      Ben will be 5 years old on July first this year. I rescued him when he was 10 days old after his mother drowned -
      and bottle fed him for 4 months. He weighs over 2000 lbs now and his tip to tip measurement is 69". He still thinks I am his momma. Here is the first video I shot of him when he was only 2 months old.

    Hello! New subscriber here. I'm a big fan of sustainable energy sources and an even bigger fan of animals, so I'm having a great time going through your other videos.
    I'm glad you're making videos, they're excellent. Nice to meet you and Ben!

    Do you do your own video editing? Going back and looking at some of your other uploads, they have amazing videography! Do you have someone else edit for you or how did you get in this hobby considering you seem more of the wilderness type of guy. btw I don't mean anything by this simply wondering the back story. thanks and keep up the great work :)

      Sorry...I forgot to add that information in the video description. I used a Canon T3i DSLR with a Takstar SGC-598 microphone.

    Just keep doing what you do, don't feel pressured to come up with crazy interesting and new stuff for us new subscribers. Lots of people who get featured wind up getting overwhelmed.

      Good advice. I will try to just keep doing crazy interesting stuff that I want to do for myself. I contemplated whether or not to do a welcome video to all the new subscribers. I decided to just go ahead and do it since I got such a big bump and I really haven't shown how big Ben really is and this was a good excuse - and I do genuinely appreciate all the people that got sucked in to my channel from stupid viral video sources (I hate when I see BoredPanda show up on my Facebook feed and personally never watch any "viral videos"...although I did make an exception for "Chewbacca Mom") . I really don't care for channels where creators constantly acknowledge their viewers as friends. My blog and my YouTube channel are really just a diary...not a dialog. I rarely respond to comments for just that reason. I have done a daily blog for almost 9 years and only recently decided to step up my YouTube game. I am a bit conflicted about this racket but ultimately I am hoping that my online presence becomes a tidy nest egg for retirement. Let's just hope I can keep it real. If you ever see me on The Ellen Show...please just slap me. In my favor I would like to add that being an out there "off gridder" has gained me my fair share of reality TV show offers over the years. I turned them all down. Cheers!
