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

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 ;)

Wow your horse looks right at home there. Never heard of moving buffalo like that before.. very cool

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.
