I love them!
Yikes, these horns are huge! I do wonder if any get accidentally gored.
Wow! Really long horns. I wouldn't want to go too near them.
I like animal photographs, are they bulls?
I could be wrong, but they were more common than shorthorns in the mid 1800's. The longhorns are quite dramatic!
What huge horns. They may be gentle but I don't think I would want to get too close to one!
Hari OmYes, they are quite spatially aware, so rare to have injuries. And they do tend to have gentle natures. Similar to the highland cattle of my homeland - not that you'd want to pick an argument, mind you! YAM xx
I can't imagine having to carry those horns around all the time. They are rather impressive looking.
Longhorns. Texas. They go hand in hand. But, y'know, I've never thought of them running into each other with their...long horns.
Gosh !! Those horns are really intimidatind!! Wonder if they they consciously avoid bumping into each other while going in a group!!
I would hope that instinct keeps accidents from happening. I wonder how heavy those horns are.
Wow, those longhorns are beautiful! Happy Thursday, enjoy your weekend ahead.
I think they must know.I bent down once to pick something up in the field and one of the long horns was curious and bent down with me. The horns brushed my hair but NEVER touched my head.I love long horns. They are very sweet animals.
How nice to find your photo blog! I used to live next to a ranch that had all kinds of exotic animals (in Northern California). Among them was a sizeable herd of Longhorns. They were indeed very mellow creatures and I could approach them through the fence and they were very curious.
Impressive horns and lovely color patterns
A great cattle shot and you raise an interesting question.
I love how they look, but seeing that I tend to stay away from large animals, I would need my telephoto lens to get a picture.
Those racks of horns are incredibly long! Talk about "elbow room"! A great find and capture here.
hahaha, that's a good question. But they do look gentle. I like this photo, Rose.~Sheri
it's a great picture of the longhorn cattle Rose... i would think that they are aware if the reach of their horns... but i am sure that they would rather be out on a renge then in that coral....peter:)
Another beautiful photo! I'm glad I don't have to carry huge horns like that.
I am a big fan of longhorns. I almost never pass by them in a pasture without stopping for some photos. Nice shot.
Can't believe those big wide horns!
Nice view of this herd. Of course they are aware of their horns and bodies; they don't get caught in fences and bushes as they walk by, do they" But of course they also have accidents - who among us hasn't bumped or backed into a stranger on a bus or crowded elevator.
They look like they are in too small of a pen for horns like that. I bet they catch them on fence wire and each other.
Those horns sure a BIG. I wonder the same thing!
