Feeding Bison at Terry Bison Ranch

Hi! It's Jilly. When we were on our epic road trip we were going to be passing through Cheyenne, Wyoming, so I decided to "google" cool things to do in the area. I found Terry Bison Ranch. It said on their website they had a train ride out to see a herd of bison. I thought that sounded pretty awesome, so I put it on our list.
When we got there and bought our train tickets I found out that not only would we be taking the train out through the herd, but we would also get to FEED them! Aah! SO cool!

To pass the time before our train ride we looked around the gift shop. The girls loved the jackalopes they could "ride".

We also checked out the other interesting animals they had on the ranch.

We had fun taking silly pictures.

Oh my word...it was so funny. Katelynn was trying to get the ostrich to look at the camera by waving a piece of grass for it to eat, and it stuck its' head though the fence and grabbed the grass out of her hand, nipping her in the process!! We all got a good laugh out of that one!

My kids love camels. The little baby camel was so sweet!

The train wasn't very fast, but it was still fun. When we got out to herd the bison came right up to the train. They knew what was coming!
Feeding the bison was SO COOL!!! It was seriously so awesome. They are such amazing creatures. 

Their tongues are really long and scratchy.
The kids could have stayed there all day long feeding the bison.

It was such a neat experience. Probably one of my favorite things we did the whole trip.

If you ever get a chance to see bison up close, you should definitely do it!

Have you ever fed a bison or another "exotic" animal? If not, would you ever do it? What's your favorite animal?
