History of the Texas Longhorn
The History of the Texas Longhorn is a variety of cows known for its trademark horns, which can stretch out to more than 70 inches (1.8 meter) tip to tip for bulls, and up to 100 inches (2.54 meter) tip to tip for steers and remarkable cows. They are relatives of the first cows presented in the New World, brought by wayfarer Christopher Columbus and the Spanish pilgrims.
Plunged from steers that flourished in bone-dry pieces of Southern Iberia, these steers have been reared for a high dry season pressure resistance. Texas Longhorns are known for their different shading, and can be any shading or blend of hues, yet dim red and white shading blends are the most predominant.
The longest recorded absolute horn-length marks is 129.5 inches (3.29 meter) was in Fayetteville, Texas. The second-longest on record is estimated 100 inches (2.54 meter) tip to tip on September 13, 2018.
