Our trainer uses buffalo to train the horses for cutting. He's had these for a couple years now and they really are quite tame. We were right in the arena with them and all they wanted to do was run, play, paw the dirt, and roll. However, when it was time to go to work, they put on their best show. This was after only two months of training on Lady. We'll see her in a practice show with cattle instead of buffalo on April 7. Can hardly wait.
You made my day! That is the funniest thing I have seen in ages. What a hoot.
Using old, tame, laid back buffalo to train horses. Whoda thunk it.
