This past week our first buffalo calves arrived on the Cheyenne River Ranch! It is always such an exciting time. A time that is full of hope and possibilities, making one believe that our mission of prairie regeneration can continue to grow. Here are a few photos, with brief explanations.
After the mother cleans the calf, she encourages it to get up right away.
The new calf will be up and on the move within two hours of it being born.
The rest of the herd is close by relaxing in the spring weather, with the buffalo birds twittering (my kind of twitter) all about with excitement.
