Original text on this topic:
Within the territory the dominant bull usually has a number of favourite resting places in which he lies up in the shade during the heat of the day, either standing or reclining on his belly or side. In cool cloudy weather with high winds they tend to shelter in thickets. Cows and subadults do not seem so prone to use established sheltering places as do territorial bulls.
