Running With Hoofs

It’s taken me a while, but I’m finally learning something about myself.  I’m an all or nothing kinda gal.  I’ve had these pictures loaded onto my Live Writer page for over a week now.  Only…waaaay out in the woods I simply couldn’t get internet  service to post.  So, I didn’t.  Not even when I got home.  Not only did I not post my pictures (or bother even bother with the text) I haven’t posted anything since.  Sigh…

So, here are my some of my pictures from the Game Farm.  (I’m hoping they enbiggen when you click on them…but frankly, I have no idea if they will or not!)

In the sleepy little town of Sequim (pronounced “skwim”) is the Olympic Game Farm.  It’s a park that  you drive your car through and can feed all sorts of animals through your window. 


This is our friend Clyde.  He ran along side the car switching from side to side begging for a crust of bread.  He reminded me of a pesky little brother.  (Not that I have one of those or anything!)

This is the view we saw most often…a big huge nose sniffing  or an an eyeball looking for a crust of bread…which of course we happily provided.



We’ve been to the game farm a few times with Shaun.  I finally refused to go with him because of the buffalo.  They, of course, are his favorite part of the entire park.  Mostly because the girls and I are terrified of them.


The VERY large buffalo that try to cram their entire heads into car windows.    It amuses Shaun to stop the car and let the buffalo do as they eat  us.


Actually all they want is some bread. 


And they always give us gobs of slobber in return.  They are considerate that way.

My dad was driving this time and he kept moving just like all the signs said.  It finally dawned on me that these huge beasts are actually quite sweet.  They seemed content to trot along beside the car and would happily lick you once in a while, especially if you gave them a slice of bread…kinda like an overgrown puppy. 


It’s hard work making friends with buffalo…just ask the girls!

    This is something my kids would get a big kick out of, I think. I love the photos, especially the buffalo up by the car. I’m off to check our their website!

    They probably would! It’s great fun

  4. Betty says:

    Ah, yes. I bonded with a buffalo once at a drive through animal park. Creeped me out, too.

    I heard there’s a great story there!

  5. Cheryl says:

    And aren’t your girls just looking so cool. Looks like they’re texting to me.

    They do, don’t they. Actually they are zonked out asleep

    I love drive through animal parks. I’ve always had a lot of fun at them. The one mom (Betty) is talking about was in Texas. I thought the buffalo was going to climb up on the car, then he walked around to the passenger side and went to eyeball-to-eyeball with mom. It was hilarious. haha

    Not what your mom said!!!!

  7. photowannabe says:

    Love, love, love your animal tour. what huge noses poking through the window. The slobber picture is priceless. Great stuff.

    I’m just glad it wasn’t me getting slobbered on!

  8. Cazzie says:

    OMG, that buffalo would make me crap me dacks!

    dacks? I think if I actually heard you talk I wouldn’t understand a word of it! But I’d love listening πŸ™‚

  9. Linda says:

    My kids would love that! Maybe I’ll have to schedule a field trip up that way huh?

    That sounds like a great plan!

  10. We used to have a place like that called Lion Country Safari. You didn’t roll your windows down AT ALL!

    It looks like a good time was had by all.

    I remember that place! We never got to go, but I wanted to sooooo badly!

  11. Patti says:

    Hey Susan,
    We took Tomi there when she was a little girl. I learned the true meaning of “Buffalo Breath”.

    pretty rank smelling isn’t it? I wonder if Tomi remembers it?

  12. holy schmoly…i’m not sure what i would do if a buffalo poked his head inside my car window! great shots!

  13. Pamela says:

    I think I guess buffalo tongue. Been there — seen the slobbery window.. ha ha!

  14. Tink says:

    That’s so cool! And just a little bit scary. πŸ™‚

    I’m jealous. We don’t have anything like that near us.
