This was a fun day! Our PleinAir Painting group
Went to a buffalo ranch in Southern Missouri.
We were able to go in the pen, take a ride on a 4 wheeler and get
within inches of all sort of buffalos. The bull, the new mommas with their
Calfs. They were so docile and calm, They keep two different herds. One herd lives close to their home and has several pastures and ponds. This group all has names etc.
They have had some of them for 30 + yrs. they are not slaughtered.
There is a huge herd across the road that is a commercial herd.
They sell all the cuts of meat and terrific buffalo jerky.
It was a great day! I can't wait to paint
