This is a Texas Longhorn.  I took this picture in Fort Worth, Texas about four years ago.  I think these cows are so beautiful!  They are known for their horns, which can sometimes extend to 120 inches tip to tip for steers. Some horns can even have a slight upward turn at their tips or even a triple twist. They are also well known for their extreme diversified coloring. The Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America serves as the recognized registry for the breed and it can fetch up to $40,000 or more at auction with a record $160,000 for a cow.
