No, it was only on display at the last Whitefriars Exhibition at the museum, which was a few years ago now.  It's not generally on display, nor is most of the WF stuff.  This is a link to my album which shows all the WF stuff which is on display at the moment: http://picasaweb.google.com/elaine.simons/HarrowHeritageMuseumWhitefirarsDisplays?feat=directlink
Not a lot, I'm afraid!   ::)

LOL ! What a cute herd !  I was thinking an American Bison (which I think might not strictly speaking be a  Buffalo !) . Besides, a male Bison is a bull anyway !  But they are too hairy around the face ...so I guess it is a normal bull or mad steer with  big hair  ;).

The colour of the glass has a slight pinkish hue in normal light if that is a clue .

I've been trawling though the internet to try to find another example but to no avail :)

Thanks Anita,

They definately have a pronounced hump but not much hair on it ! I'm thinking possibly Romagnola , derived/bread from an ox native to north eastern Italy....which would tie in.  Here's a link ...a hump with hair  :-\.
