Texas Longhorns Coming Home

Texas Longhorns Coming Home

Some people love their dogs. Some people love their cats. Some people love a variety of other animals. I love my Longhorns. These are located in Oak Harbor, Wa. and I snapped these pictures in yesterdays (12/17/08) snowstorm, which is a rare occasion for Whidbey Island. Cows in general always travel together. When one moves, they all move and it is common for them to move in a single line. These pictures were taken in the early morning as they came out of the shelter of the forest and were headed home for a drink of water. Longhorns were the first cattle to arrive in North America. They were once closer to extinction than the American buffalo. They are the hardiest of cattle and can thrive in any climate, including the heat of the desert and even in sub-zero temeratures. These are my pets and are strictly for enjoyment, they are not for food purposes. There is nothing better than looking out your window and seeing these magnificant animals going about their day, just as you see in these pictures.
