I love Vietnam's water buffalo!

I do. I love water buffalo.

We saw a number of water buffalo on our road trip.

I have enjoyed learning about water buffalo since coming to Vietnam. I grew up with a friend from my gymnastics years who lived on a buffalo farm... but those buffaloes were different from these water buffalo. Water buffalo are native to Southeast Asia... and are very gentle animals. A water buffalo is often a poor farmer's most valuable possession in Vietnam. (The Wikipedia article on Water Buffalo does a pretty good job of describing these guys.)
