Pics of me working buffalo last night

I finally had someone around with a camera last night so I got some pics of me working buffalo.

Bay gelding is a son of WR This Cats Smart out of a Smart little lena daughter.

Sorrel is a Freckles Playboy grandson.

Hope you enjoy :)

Looks like a blast!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I've approached a local buffalo breeder about just tracking them with youngsters I'm riding but he said they are meaner than snakes and he'd feel too liable. Is that typical? They aren't common around here so I have no clue ;)

They can be pretty mean. A friend of mine just had to go move some buffalo for a farmer because a buffalo killed his son.

These buffalo have been at our place for 3 years now. They arent tame by any means but they wouldnt come at you or anything.

We have 10 head and they are pretty different which is nice. Some of the bigger girls are slow and easy then theres a couple small ones that are pretty crazy. They have a way bigger flight zone than cattle so you have to really use space to control the speed your going. You will never outrun a buffalo and they will run till they die so you have to be smart when your working them so your horses dont get beat.

Wow, those are great pictures! We have a farm with them not too far away from us and just seeing how big they are in the field is intimidating.
