    Default Cowboy has a real Texas Longhorn Bull!

    Well I know I started a thread about gettin' some Dexter cattle. I had a change of heart and got me a real Texas Longhorn Bull. We found him online yesterday and headed North today to get him. It was a long ride and has us all wiped out. The 3/4 ton sprang a leak in the radiator but, I was able to nurse her home. The little guy is just over a year old DOB 5/9/2011. The major plus is he is halter broke and trailers very easy. Better than a horse! I need to name him so any suggestions are welcome. Slippery Hollow's fill in the blank _____________. He has "Butler" bloodlines all the way from Lubbock TX.

    Here he is!

    Well, Longhorns eat rough forage and are leaner than turkey, from what I have read and they are the original American herd. Kind of like eating buffalo. You should have seen the herd I bought this guy out of. Some of the heffers were about 58" horn to horn. Steers were around 6 ft. You get the added bonus of a spectacular hide and horns plus lean meat that is actually higher in protein than beef cattle. Plus being part of restoring a breed that was almost extinct. I am very excited about it!

    The wife got a good laugh out of your response. I am kinda stubborn and I'll be naming this bull.

    Did you know that the bulls do not get the rocking chair horns the breed is famous for?

    The nice horns are reserved for the steers and cows. The bulls just have those simatar curved horns like yours has a good start on.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    You can also milk a longhorn. They don't have the output that a dairy cow does, but is perfect for single family consumption. The milk is a little creamier as well, and makes the BEST butter. And such sweet tempers! Cowboy, you sure have a nice lookin' bull!
    Cheer up, the worst is yet to come.

    I was thinking dinner or supper or tender. Then I remembered the Australian slang for food was tucker. So, I would call the bull Tucker.

    You realize, of course, that every respectable Sandlapper has to name at least one of his critters with something to do with the Gamecocks or the Tigers? My son is a big Tiger fan and I used to date Miss Clemson (yes, for real! - looong time ago), so I'm tossing out "Tiger".

    Oh I don't know Delta, if you were to give a Bull a Tiger name would that not give him a complex?

    Well, he looks like cookies and cream and has devil horns. How about CC Devil?

    Good looking animal.
    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.
