Note:

"As part of his ongoing wildlife conservation and historic preservation initiatives, Watt Matthews had buffalo calves from the Reynolds' X Ranch in Kent, Texas, brought to Lambshead to create a small herd. In Interwoven, Sallie Reynolds Matthews described the hills “brown with bison”. As part of their Indian removal program, the U.S. Cavalry managed the extermination of plains bison in the 1870s. Watt’s friend Mule Stover brought the calves to Lambshead in the back seat of his Buick."
