"Going on a hay ride with you."

Bison Quest Drive In Dining

This youngster isn’t big on waiting for the hay to come to him.  Once we arrive, he jumps on the trailer and rides while I drive. Craig throws hay off of the front of the bale while the youngster snacks on the back.  It’s a buffalo sort of “Drive In Dining.”

"Deck the horns with boughs of aspen...."

“Deck the horns with boughs ….”

Ok – this is how we entertain ourselves when the weather is subzero and we’re out feeding the buffs, with Christmas carols playing on the radio! Inspiration (or desperation) abounds!  Other ideas welcome – I’ll see how many of them I can match with photos :).

 

And then comes the cautious coyote… February 21, 2013

While some critters come right in to the camera, others make really sure that it’s okay first. This series shows the cautious canid starting in, then going back out, coming in again and then going back out, over and over.  It took two nights before he finally actually ate at the bones.  Even then, he would eat, then back off, then carefully come back in.  This is how a little 20 lb canid lives in a hostile world.

Cautious coyote checks it out

Moves in...

Moves in…

Moves back out

Moves back out

Moves in again with a little more confidence

Moves in again with a little more confidence

and finally, eats.

and finally, eats.

 

Knock 3 Times – and you get buffalo! February 16, 2013

Feeding our bison in the winter is just a matter of driving out to where we last saw them and throwing out hay.  Usually they’re there.  Sometimes they aren’t.  And that’s when that old song by Toni Orlando and Dawn (yes, VERY old song) starts running through my head, “Knock 3 times on the ceiling if you want me, ….  Because I honk the horn three times, over and over until…. HERE THEY COME!  http://youtu.be/3K61YvfxbXA

Knock 3 Times on the ceiling if you want me....
