Almost a Buffalo

What you are looking at in the picture above is a buffalo statue just outside the town north of mine. He appears to be all dressed up for Christmas. I took the picture a few days before then. He was a pretty easy target since he didn't move at all and even let me get right up close.

How do I know that he's a he? Take a very close look at him. It's interesting that they would put that little detail on a statue. I guess they have to do it right. I'd probably do the same if I made the statue. I'd leave off the Christmas decorations though so that random photographers could get better pictures.

I wanted to do this post a few days earlier but then Christmas got so close that I figured it might be better to take a few days off. I had a pretty good Christmas, so it was all worth it. I hope you did too. The next post won't take so long. I have some good stuff coming. I'll talk to you later.

    1. You may have been past it. It's not far from some of the other places you've visited near here.

  2. Odd. The first thing I noticed that made me think statue was how neat his coat looked. Then I realized no live buffalo would wear a Christmas necklace!

    1. I noticed that neat coat too. The Christmas necklace did seem oddly out of place.

    1. Yeah, I'm not sure a real buffalo would be too happy if someone tried to put that thing on it. It might be fun to watch though.

  4. I hope you've been having a great holiday season, Ratty! I'd rather see that buffalo wearing Christmas decor than us kitties!

    1. I guess that Christmas decor doesn't depress the fake buffalo as much as it does you kitties.

  5. It looks so real.

    So real that you can tell its gender.
