Lightning Medicine Cloud
White Male Buffalo- Born May 12, 2011 - Passed May, 2012

At the Lakota Ranch in Greenville, Texas, on May 12, 2011, on a thundering, stormy night complete with lightning and hail, a prophesy was born—a living piece of a legend central to many Native spiritualities. It took the form of a buffalo calf that emerged into the world completely white, a one-in-ten-million occurrence that is even more miraculous considering the scarcity of buffalo today.

To our sadness, he joined his earth father and our heavenly father just shy of his 1st birthday in May of 2012..

As we mourn the death of Lightning Medicine Cloud, it is so important to us that his legacy will forever live on through the message he brought as, "The Hope of All Nations". Lightning was brought in as a spiritual blessing from God and taken taken away at a far too young age. 

May you all rest in peace, dearest Gentle Ben, Lightning Medicine Cloud, and Buffalo Woman.
You will be missed very much, but NEVER forgotten.  It has been our honor to have taken care of you and shared in your greatness.
