Holy Cow – well buffalo really

Water buffalo are pretty cool. I had the opportunity to photograph these gentle souls at Fairburn Farm in the Cowichan Valley this past week. This is a herd of approximately 45 animals, living a gentle life and providing milk for the cheese industry.

Darrel and Anthea Archer are the wonderful folks behind this operation, rising early every morning to make sure their beloved water buffalo are happy for the day.

I’ll be back for more photos, I can see a story coming out of this one.
