Perky

Bison begin their life as calves and are quite tame at this stage. They will run about and play with other young bison, much as young domestic cattle do. Unlike most bovines, the hair of a bison calf is of a different color than it is when fully grown; it starts as a light-brown, sandy color, indeed reddish in many cases, while the adult plains bison has a smoky gray-brown color.

Woke up to snow on this particular late May spring day, but that didn't deter these little bundles of energy. I managed to catch this one coming right towards us as we were stopped in the road, waiting on the herd to cross. It's almost Friday :-) Have a great one, and thanks for all your visits and kind words!!!!
