Me too, and by the way, a Buffalo does not sing, we bellow.

I made mine out of grass and a whole lot of mud, kept it together with
sisal rope pulled apart into threads, works great.
I was in a den (CS WB) of one other male and 6 females. To add to the
sillyness of it all we had tails that we wore. A piece of brown
fur type material large for the males and smaller for the women.
We had great fun with it as we would turn our backs and swing our tails
to the staff. As I think back, my dean was outside waiting for one of
the ladies to finish her buisness in the bathroom. The door opened up
and out she came slapping her tail against the building. being a female
she was not used to anything "hanging down" and when she sat on the seat
her tail proceeded to get wet. Some of my other sister buffaloes also
had similar problems.
My "chips" were 4 to 5 inches in diameter and were left in obvious locations,
the weather rock, the service shovel, etc. Be creative.
our cheer went something like this
"CHIP, CHIP, CHIP, WATCH WHERE YOU STEP"
If I think of any more I'll post.
As you sing, sorry, bellow out "back to Gilwell", stomp your
foot as a patrol, (out and draw it back).
