    Love seeing these beauties. Have a friend here who raises this type of cattle here in Arkansas. I miss the West so much. Grew up in out there and lived in dozens of places. Dad was a welder and followed construction. Married an Arkie and was out West the first 20 years of our marriage and then all Arkies come home when they get older. Ha

    • I love seeing longhorns and imaging what it must have been like to see herds of them being driven from Texas to Kansas. I think they’re so much more interesting than regular cattle, although probably not as good for meat.

      I’m a fan of the West myself, although I’ve mostly lived in the Midwest.

        I miss the deserts of Arizona, the beaches of California. The mountains of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The beauty of Wyoming is wonderful. Nevada is my least favorite Western state, but I have been all over it. Love the rock arches of Utah. Camping in Montana was wonderful. Oh sorry – you already know I miss the West. Ha

      • I do know, Peggy. I haven’t spent as much time as you in the West as I’ve lived in the Midwest, but my heart is in the West. When I was growing up, we lived in Nebraska, putting us right in the middle of everything, and as my dad liked to travel, we went all over the US to some extent, but mostly to the West. Except for some years in Steamboat Springs and Greeley, CO, I haven’t lived in the West until now, but I’ve been to Wyoming for every summer, barring two, since I was in college, which was many years ago. The mountains fill that little spot in my heart reserved for completion, not that the mountains have to be in Wyoming, but of course that’s my special place. 🙂

        I use to love to go to Telluride, Colorado every year to see the gorgeous yellow aspen trees in October. The mountains are fabulous anywhere. No one knows what mountains are until they get into the Rocky Mountains. So glad you enjoy the West so much.

      • There are aspens in some places in the Big Horns, but I’m never there during the fall to see their beauty. I do enjoy their sound as I ride by, though.

        The Rocky Mountains are indeed spectacular and I’ve also been blessed to have been in the Alps in Europe. In the mid-seventies I spent almost a year backpacking around Europe and worked over the winter in Grindelwald, Switzerland, which has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. I saw the Eiger outside my window every day.

        The Alps must be spectacular – I have never been there. I have a friend that went every year to hike around the Alps – he said he loved it more than any other place he had ever been.

  3. There are horns, and then there are HORNS. 🙂

    Those horns look dangerous!

  7. Yehaw, longhorns! That’s the mascot for my alma mater University of Texas. 🙂

    I’m not going to argue, Janet 🙂 🙂

  9. bushboy says:

    Not many like that in Australia 😄

    Must have been the inspiration for the handlebars on a Harley Davidson!

  11. lolaWi says:

    wow. that is amazing! 🙂

    We have cows in western Uganda with such long horns that make a u-shape. These interestingly cover a wider space 🙂

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
