disastrous results, as

A cowboy knew no safety even on hia own ranch, for he could never tell when he might be jerked out of the saddle by the whirling rope of a playful friend.

This love of roping rubbed off on the children, too. Many a boy had to be rescued after dropping his rope on a big steer that far outweighed his light pony!

And every cow town has its story of a cowboy who "roped a train!" This was considered the wildest feat of all, and provided bunkhouse conversation for weeks

The corraled buffalo calves are vaccinated, tested for T.B., and branded with a number designating the year of their birth. Calves born in 1958 are branded with an "8."

The history of this herd dates back to 187.3, when a Pen D 'Oreille Indian, "Walking Coyote," captured a few buffalo calves and drove them into this lush, green valley in Montana. The descendants of Walking Coyote's herd are cared for and given refuge as they roam within the National Bison Range.
