“You’re going to want some of these yourself!” the neighbor told my dad.

“Nah, I don’t think so. I don’t think my fences would hold them,” he replied. They were talking about the new buffalo trio the neighbor had just purchased. A pregnant cow with calf, and a bull. The neighbor, from Aspen, thought they would be a terrific investment, and couldn’t wait to get started. Dad, a little skeptical decided to let them settle in for a couple of weeks, then he took us to see the new woolly beasts.
