Longhorns on Exchange Street
These steers have VERY long horns. They are most impressive when you see them attached to an animal who may or may not decide to use them. and while they are accustomed to doing this trip twice a day, every day (subject to weather), they are still not 'tame' animals.
Think about it. Longhorn steers weigh as much as a ton each and have horn spans up to 6 feet. In the picture it looks almost like one of the steers is scratching the butt of the one in front of him. How would that grab you?
The cattle are donated by breeders from throughout the state. To prepare the longhorns for what they might encounter during the daily outings, the drovers tried everything possible to irritate the one-ton beasts. They blared sirens, drove cars around them and pulled their tails. One steer, a red-and-white bovine named Bravo, passed every test but was pulled from the team the day he gored a horse
Stay back on the curbs.
According to the website: "The Trail Boss has the ultimate decision on whether to drive the cattle or not. Longhorns are not pets or show animals, and drives are subject to their disposition."
The cowboy at the left is at the trailing end of the herd, most of which is out of sight on the right.
