A Gentle Giant

The is no shortage of wild animals near where I live, but seeing this guy and his friends in one of the pastures always brightens my day. On a quick trip last week, I noticed him standing alone in the meadow, far from the crowd, and wanted to stop. But I had an errand that needed to be done. On my return trip, Imagine how happy I felt when this guy waited by the side of the road so I could get a better look. Or did he want a better look at me?

He was in the road, looking for the place in the fence where he’d crossed but wasn’t successful. When I stopped, he probably assumed I would help him so he came over to ask directions.

Ultimately, another passerby went to the house to let them know of an ‘escapee’ and his adventure came to an end.

  1. He’s so beautiful! Is he a beefalo bull? Do you know what breed of cattle they’ve crossbred the bison with to get a coat like that?

      1. I wonder if he’s mixed with some sort of yak? I know an avid knitter and she was telling me about bison wool and how wonderful it is. . .I know some people knit with yak wool, too. This guy could’ve been bred for both his wool and meat. 🙂
