My brother sent me the above link about this rare white buffalo calf born in Texas.  I hadn't heard about it so thanks to my brother for keeping me updated.
I wrote about my dream of a white buffalo, here and now this little guy was born on May 12, 2011.
He was born on the Lakota Ranch in Greenville, Texas.  The ranch owners, Arby and Patricia Little Soilder, held a naming ceremony for him Wednesday, June 29, 2011.  Sorry I didn't know about it.  
He was named Lightning Medicine Cloud because he was born during a thunderstorm and to pay homage to Big Medicine, another rare white buffalo born in 1933.
 According to the ranch's website you can still view him through July 4th.  They will have another ceremony when Lightning Medicine Cloud turns 2.
A few years ago when my husband was working in North Dakota he got to see a white buffalo.  He says it's pretty cool.
Have a great day.

What a priviledge it would be to get to see a white buffalo.
