    Re: here's the buffalo

    I am sorry...from the angle of the pic they looked kicked back some.

    But you are correct, in live ref. pics...they can be almost any angle (i have seen some that looked like they would get stuck in a fence if they pushed up against it..LOL)

    A shampoo you might want to try, is Main & Tail shampoo that you get at the Equine dealer. Works great on show horses and show cattle, should work on a Bison.
