Never Boring!!!!

Postby Northern Rancher » Mon May 30, 2005 11:04 am

Went out this A'M and my calving cows seemed a bit more alert than usual-an hour later found out why-a gravel truck driver told me he saw a buffalo running our fence. I went and found him-he got in our big swamp pasture so I guess he's ours till he decides to leave. I had the crosshairs on him_I'm wondering if I'm gong to regret taking a Leupold snapshot of him lol. He's in his ancestral grounds anyway lots of buff skulls out there.

Can a buffulo bull breed a bovine cow? I was always told that they couldn't, but a bovine bull can breed a buffulo cow.

There was a white buffalo born near here a few days ago. Supposed to be 'big medicine', I guess. I think it is supposed to be a sign of a returning indian princess or something. Coming to purify the world and such. Sure looks neat though.

Well I gave my buffalo buddy a couple days to wander home-hadn't seen him till tonight when he was back in my cows. He started running them hard and is now four quarters in the back of my neighbors truck. I buffaloed bill'd him with one shot from my .270 lol.

Are you sure he wasn't half "Sacred Charolais"?

Couldn't get those newspaper pictures to come up on the screen.
Rats! Don't know why some work and some don't.
That must be something to see a white buffalo. Spooky? Did he have pink eyes or were you too far away, hiding? :)

Where did the buffalo come from? You did exactly what we would have done a little "lead poisoning". :wink:

No pink eyes. I don't know about you, but near where I live wild buffalo are pretty common place. I only have to go about an hour from here to see all of them I'd ever want to see. I only worry they will be here soon. If that happens, there will be lead poisoning issues. Elk are bad enough.
