The Longhorn is commonly known as the Texas Longhorn. This breed of cattle is best known for its horns which can extend up to 7 feet. Their ancestors were brought to the new world by Christopher Columbus and Spanish colonists. Over the next two centuries the herds were moved northward until they reached the area that would become Texas. The cattle were on the open range, turned wild and evolved into the tough, drought, low and poor vegetation tolerant animal that was required to live in the inhospitable area. Adult cows were aggressively protective of their young unlike the cattle of today. These extremely wily and intelligent animals would hide in or take anyone chasing them into imprenetrable thorn bushes/trees to escape their captors. Their long legs and rangy build allowed them to move swiftly when needed and the wickedly long horns were the ultimate weapon for frontal defense with strong hind legs that could lash out in an instant if unable to utilize their horns or if attached from both ends. When settlers moved west they originally bred their cattle with the wild Mexican cattle and the cattle that can be seen today are their descendants. Once the area was well settled the ranches no longer wanted the lean, rangy longhorn as they preferred the fast growing cattle that gained weight quickly. The few small herds that were left by the late 1920's were saved from near extinction by the US Forest Service who established a breeding herd on a wildlife refuge in Oklahoma. Within a couple of years other herds were established in Texas State Paks. The Longhorn flourished in these protected conditions due to their longevity, resistance to disease and ability not only to survive but thrive on poor, sparse pastures. Today many ranchers raise them as beef stock once again and as a representation of the Wild West.
