Today was a busy one. I helped with one of our two annual bison roundups (one for each herd) at the Niobrara Valley Preserve. We brought about 500 bison in from the hills, ran them through a corral system, and sorted the ones to be kept from those to be sold. It was a cool and cloudy day, but the predicted rain held off until the last two hours, and we got everything done by late afternoon. I always love the chance to see these animals up close, and to listen to the sounds of pounding hooves and bison grunts.
I will post more photos from the Preserve next week, but I’ve just got time to post this one before I head to supper and then bed.
