Everybody’s got a water buffalo
Yours is fast but mine is slow
O where do you get them I don’t know
But everybody’s got a water buffalo
Not everybody has a water buffalo, Archie says, but
We did have a water beefalo…….
My beefalo jumped into the pool
The chlorine made him start to drool
The water slowly turned to brown
I’m just so glad she didn’t drown.
She belonged to our neighbor. Her mama was a Longhorn and her daddy was a buffalo that had jumped the fence on the ranch where she lived before. I guess she got her athletic ability from him. I thought he was kidding when I heard this story from her owner, Pat, but I found out that this is a popular cross. The meat has less cholesterol,less saturated fat,less total fat and fewer calories. I also read that unlike cattle, they sweat. No wonder she wanted to take a dip in the pool to cool off. “Take a picture” Tom said. Then I remembered another bit of info about her. She is MEAN! We called off the dogs as she ambled out and backed away to hop on our horses and grab our cell phone to call the pool cleaning crew. We closed the gate where she had gotten in before the whole herd joined her.
