This is Buffy at the Santa Fe Ranch. Buffy was the gift of Paulita Sedgwick- she, Buffy that is, is an American bison. Former Ranch manager and Board member Ron Fish says of moving bison from one pasture to another, that the only way to do it was to open the gate and hope she would go where he wanted her to.

Buffy enjoyed classical music and every evening, Eduardo Bojorquez, 30 years a cowboy at the Santa Fe Ranch would turn on a cd player near her paddock and the sounds of Mozart, Beethoven or Rachmaninoff would waft across the desert evening.

In summer, Buffy would be hot and so we set up a swamp cooler for her- it would hum away loudly in the heat and Buffy would sensibly stay as far away from the contraption as possible!
