I went out of town this weekend and on the way back saw this beast. I've seen a lot of longhorns but nothing that looked this strange. Hope you enjoy. C&C welcome.

You must be eithervery braveor familiar to him.Seeing such horns, I would hesitate going near him or even be in his sight! Very nice pic.

Very nice, Don. I agree that is not the normal way I've seen the longhorns grow.

Wow, he should be in the Guiness book of records for longest horns! Good thing you had an a camera with a long reach...thanks for sharing. Donna

Well, we don´t have longhorns here. And for a reason!

This guy would probably not be able to turn around in a german barn, and always would rip off the electric fences....

What a strange looking animal, I´m still not sure if ist`s beauty or beast...

Cheers,

Mess with the bull and....you get the BIG horns! Neat shots. Jim

Thanks for viewing and your comments everybody. I've seen other longhorns with horns that long but the usually go straight out and then up. This one got a little turned around. I've also seen these wild up in the Davis Mountain of West Texas and they are mean.

Raghu, You forget the Handy Dandy 12x zoom on my FZ20. Without that I can assure you it would have been a looooong' distance shot.

Harjtt, They actually do sharpen and polish there horns. I've seen them tear down small trees doing so.

Now that's a real longhorne, good find and capture.

Thanks Tcook. When I saw it and stopped I was the only one there. By the time I finished photographing it there were four cars stopped and taking pictures.
