A picture a day from around the Roanoke, VA area.
Good Friday Morning Tanya! Love this photo. Hope you have a nice weekend. Mildred
Looks like the cattle are getting ready for a restful week-end, too
Looks like they no longer roam.
looks like Paint Bank will be in our travels soon. i told the hubby & he thinks it's a perfect fun trip. can't wait. i wonder what Buffalo are like for a farm? normal? leaner meat? more fighting? easy to feed? what? makes you wonder? (:
I think buffalo are so cool!
The bison are down. I've heard buffalo meat is quite good but have not had a chance to taste it yet. I think I asked you this before, but the name, Breese, is so familiar...and I recall a few years back I got an email from a woman in your part of the country who said her relative, named Breese, had the same 12 DNA markers as I did and could we be related. But none of the other names were familiar. Obviously, there is a connection, but probably quite distant. Do you remember any of this or am I thinking of another Breese? Does Lowell Anderson mean anything?
no i don't recall this but it's really interesting...especially since i do genealogy...i wonder which breese line you are connected to?!
they look quite comfortable.
Relaxin buffalo! I guess they had a hard day grazing, huh? LoL! =)
"Oh give me a home where the Buffalo roam" ok..now this song is in my head. Funny how some photos can do that to a person!!!
Tanya - I got rather excited last night watching our UK news on Channel 4. They had a reporter in Roanoke covering the presidential election showing lots of shots outside!!!! So I saw for myself how your weather is and it was just fun to think I know someone who lives there. Now to this photo - Brilliant!
oh wow, that is so cool!!
we have a few bison keepers around here. so cool.
I guess these buffalo can't roam to far. Great photo!
That is so cool you can see buffalo right in your neck of the woods! They seem quite mellow, even if they're not roaming:) (Your photo must've made everyone think of that song!:)
I want to lay around all day!
They are bison. I guessed they were and came here to make sure.
the cattle look like they're expecting rain
Great picture of the wooly beasts!! :)
Great capture!Thanks for visiting.
What a nice photo! I have had a buffalo burger before, but did not care for it.Haha... I lived in Virginia for 15 or so years. First in the VA Beach area and then in Colonial Heights. My husband retired from the Army and we came back home to SW Georgia. I don't miss those Nor'easters nor snow. The heat and humidity is bad here, but with an ac I can handle it :-)
I'm assuming that these guys understand that single strand of "goosey wire"? We have one buffalo farm in the adjoining county. The owners have turned it into a tourist destination and restaurant. The babies are as cute as can be.
Aha, they are having a lazy day, maybe nap time! This is so picturesque!
Somebody took a trip to Paint Bank! I haven't been there in about 10 years. Did you eat at the Swinging Bridge?
My son recently tried bison...he said it's pretty tasty. Personally, I would hate to eat something that was almost extinct once.
What a great mean to measure time and life. Years since last I saw alike. Please have a good weekend.
I remember eating "buff steak" in Nepal when i was young...but I don't eat any meat at all these days. Great pic... i like the way you edited the grass and the way the fences weave across the picture.
How cool!They look to be very contented. :)
Agree - bison are cool! Great photo.
Wonderful fence picture!
I love buffalo (bison). Great photo.
bison in va?! cool!
Love this shot! It looks like most of them are taking a little snooze!
I thought last week when I photographed yesterday's blog photo. It was indeed a funky fence.
that should have included---- I thought of you last week...
I like the different directions the fences are going in, and in the middle, resting cows. Very nice!
