This is a head shot of a Texas Long Horn . He was really watching me very carefully. I have to admit that I found him to be equally intriguing with his unique horns and willingness to stand apart from the rest of the herd while I snapped my pictures.

The Texas Longhorn is a breed of cattle known for its characteristic horns, which can extend to 7 feet (2.1 m) tip to tip for steers and exceptional cows, and 36 to 48 inches (0.91 to 1.2 m) tip to tip for bulls. Horns can have a slight upward turn at their tips or even triple twist. Texas Longhorns are known for their diverse coloring. The Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America and the International Texas Longhorn Association serve as the recognized registries for the breed. Texas Longhorns with elite genetics can often fetch $40,000 or more at auction with the record of $160,000 in recent history for a cow.1 Due to their innate gentle disposition and intelligence, Texas Longhorns are increasingly being trained as riding steers.
