Texas Longhorn

Posted by B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 15 July 2018 in Animal & Insect.

The Texas Longhorn is a breed of cattle known for its characteristic horns, which can extend to over 5.9 ft. tip to tip for bulls, and 6.9 ft. tip to tip for steers and exceptional cows.

They are descendants of the first cattle in the New World, brought by Christopher Columbus and the Spanish colonists, and have a high drought-stress tolerance. Texas Longhorns are known for their diverse coloring, and can be any color or mix of colors, but dark red and white color mixes are the most dominant.
