The is a water buffalo that lives on my friend Pat's farm. The thing is enormous. Bill (Pat's brother-in-law) told Yun and I that they kept it as a pet. It's as friendly as the nicest dog you've ever met. Her name is Buffy. You can sit on her, lay on her, even grab her face and she loves it all. She has two huge horns but they seem to be smashed against her head out of the way. Bill said they do that to them when they are a baby. They burn the horns somehow. The horns are very dangerous and can do serious damage if you are not careful. Anyway bill said they started to let the buffalo out to hang out with the cows and all of a sudden her personality changed. He said she became very protective of the cows and she started to menace Pat nad Bill. She was becoming unpredictable. There are kids around so they can't take a chance. Buffy is going to live with another farmer who has a bunch of water buffalo himself. Maybe she'll find a mate.
