He’s getting old, but he is such a majestic, grizzled, shaggy creature, with his bedraggled winter coat half shed, his horns slightly worn down from rubbing, and his beautiful dark eyes.
One of the details I remember from when I saw my first bison almost forty years ago is the surprising stripe pattern underneath their agile tongue. Also known as handkerchief.
The arrival of the first calf of the season is always highly anticipated. This cow has beautiful horns.
She will stay at the far side of the herd with her calf if the farm truck approaches. She will often stand between the calf and the truck even when distant, so it may require patience to get a photo.
Any cow with a young calf is dangerous. Bison can move at the speed of lightning.
