Well, technically it still has 4 legs, but it’s left rear leg didn’t work.  And I guess it is a tri-ungulate not a tripawd big-grin

Last week I was up in Montana visiting family and my mom and I took a tourist day in Yellowstone NP.  I like to go to the north east part of the park, out in the Lemar Valley.  There are usually lots of animals and fewer people.

We saw lots of buffalo, but this one caught my eye.  I don’t know about the rest of you, but before Maggie’s amp I had only seen one or two tripawds.  After Mag’s surgery I could spot a tripawd a mile away! Well this one was hanging in a group of 4, we had driven by them a couple hours earlier and they were all laying down.  On our way out of the park they were grazing by the road and I immediately saw the gait. I had my mom pull over (tourist!) and shot a little video.  It had the normal rear amp issue going up the hill, but seemed to get along just fine for the most part.  The leg swings, but never touches the ground.  Even when it was standing still the hoof was off the ground.  I stopped shooting when it stopped by the white car.  But then it went down the road bank and galloped away! It was too far for me to get it on video.  Just like most tripawds- it hopped when it walked, but was smooth when it went faster.

And for those of you who haven’t been up close with a buffalo I added the second video.  We saw this big bull about an hour later.

Wow! Tripawd tri-ungulates are amazing creatures. It’s so cool to see, and real interesting how the buffalo’s gait was just like a regular ol’ Tripawd. What a sight for you to see. I think that’s a first-class vacation if you ask me!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Wow, how cool!

(Funny… I almsot didn’t open this … I thought there was just a word missing and read it as Tripawd IN Buffalo. thought someone who lives in Buffalo was looking for other local Tripawds! Hehehe.)

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman.
