Old article noted Buffalo head into wind during snow storms and herd bunchs a bit with younger calves in toward center. when they slow advance to a shelter, the herd pauses in lee of shelter. first cattle herds in Dakotas drift down wind and end up bunching, some of the longhorns joined buffalo herds and survived. The survivors come spring bred with the young Buffalo bulls that old bull was chasing away from "his" harem and the "Beefalo" offspring were noted in 1890s. Humans caught in blizzards snuggle up to whatever warm body with shelter- and some offspring also result with combined features, sometimes features of "Buffalo soldiers". Scotch ox not noted as big pile up critters- lager up with calves in middle and wait out snow storm. Wild horse herds in northwest may be trimmed back- but the old Siberan Pony bloodlines have survived since 1880s bad winters so likely to survive this one also. Now if someone can figure a cheap way to get the snow to Texas to relieve the drought? Be kind of nice, don"t think the thirsty texas critter would complain about cool water/snow melt. RN

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeYep buffalo's are smarter, they head for the tree's if they are nearby or they just stay put.

I had some calves born in 3' of wet snow this spring, it didn't bother them none.
