Oh Give Me a Home...(sing it with me!) #WW


Seriously, did we see what I think we just saw on the side of the street???

I had to turn the car around and go back for a better look

Turns out I wasn't the only one who was curious.  :)

  1. I hope that fence is taller and sturdier than it looks, buffalo can jump fences 10 feet high and go right through a wooden fence!

    1. I was very surprised it started coming towards me, and there's a busy street there, so I hurried up and drove off, not wanting him to come out.

  2. Speaking of fences, you really need a super powerful one to keep those babies in.

    1. That little fence was all they had, and it was next to the highway. Crazy stuff.

    1. They have a buffalo farm in the next city over that my daughter wants us to go see this summer. I'm curious, and think we'll do it. :) Thanks for stopping by.

  4. We have buffalos (or is it bison?) at our local zoo and I swear that my boys could stare at them for hours.

  5. There are a couple of different places I have seen buffalo. One is not all that far from us. Erie, Pa. They also have a restaurant there where you can get a Buffalo Burger.

  19. Wow. Those Buffalo are so huge. I've never seen one up close. The little calf is a curious cutie, but I wouldn't mess with her Mama! lol

  20. You sure don't see that everyday around here.
    POSH

  21. Oh I love it! Finally someone got a shot of buffalo! We kept looking and looking for them when we did our cross-country road trip last summer, but apparently it was mating season so they were off doing their thing in privacy...heh! ;) Love your shots! :)

    Signs of Spring... At Last!

  22. Omgosh Rosey! I'm glad you didn't get run down by one of those! I don't know how someone could keep buffalo with an inadequate fence!

    Thanks for linking up :)

  23. I loved that song in elementary school. Thanks for the flashback :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh crazy! I wonder if they're just super tame and the owners figure the fence will suffice because of that! Would definitely be a surprising sight!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those things are massive! I'm surprised you had the cajones to go back and get some up close shots with that flimsy looking fence! You are much braver than me, my friend ;)

  26. I love buffalo! There are several Buffalo farm sin our area and we like to stop by once in awhile. they are such cool animals :)

  27. now this song will be in my head all day my friend☺ great photos.

  28. We have a couple Buffalo (and Beefalo) farms by us. My son just noticed one of the farms for the first time the other day and was super excited to see real life buffalo!:-)

    By the way, I'm sure you were perfectly safe taking pictures. Those electric fences don't look like much but work pretty well ;-)

  29. My 18 year old used to sing this all the time when she was little because it was on Barney! She'd put on her cowgirl hat and gallop around singing Home, Home on Drange :)

    1. I laugh when the little ones mix up song words like that, with my older three I corrected it, with my little guy I don't say a word because I know it'll be gone before I know it. :)

  30. Super cool. The most I've seen is cows. I'd love to see some of those up close.

    Happy WW :)

  31. I LOVE animals, but I've never actually been face-to-fact with this one. It looks quite frighting .....

  34. There was a drive through park that had buffalo roaming around where I grew up. They are interesting creatures!

  35. OMG! You are lucky you had your camera with you! See, that's why it pays to have your camera with you at all times :o) Great captures! Hope you had a wonderful Wednesday!

  36. That fence doesn't look sturdy enough for me to get that close lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. You'll see buffaloes (ours live near swamps) roaming in the 'kampong' (villages).

    ♫♪♪♫.....Where the deer and the antelope play..... ♫♪

    The song is stuck in my head too!

  38. Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
    And the skies are not cloudy all day

    In the Cades Cove area of the Smoky's years ago, the park had a couple of buffalo in one of the fields. They were big beast, too. The fence could have easily been demolished by these animals, but they didn't seem to mind the human factor at all. It was amazing to come upon these creatures lazying under a huge shade tree. They seemed so out of place to me.

  39. Haha... That's funny that you drove back to get another look. :)

  40. Too fun! I just love animals - all of them, even the not so pretty ones like snakes. :) I love these photos and yes, they are GORGEOUS!

  41. Well it had to happen...sooner or later winter blues was going to get to you and you were going to start stalking buffalo, bison, or very hairy bulls!!! lol...too funny...on the last shot seems like he was checking your intentions out too and getting ready to call the 5-0 on you! Ha. Love it!

    1. I know, Lizy, it startled me that he was coming so close and I high-tailed it out of there. The highway was RIGHT behind me and I didn't want him to come out and get hurt (or hurt a car, lol). I had no idea until this post that they could jump so high. Crazy.

  45. My song goes..Give me a home among the gum trees, with lots of plum trees, a sheep or two and a Kangaroo. a veranda at the front, clothesline at the back and an old rocking chair...this is a very different scene for me :)

    1. LOL, I think it would be awesome to see kangaroo running around. When I lived in Florida, Vanilla Ice had a kangaroo that got loose, it was quiet the news at the time. ;)
