[Biggest I've ever seen - massive rack.]
What a handsome and massive longhorn! And yes, that's quite a rack! It looks comfortable in front of your lens. I love the colours here too, warm and vibrant.

Now I know why they're called Longhorns! He looks like he could be quite dangerous if he got up in a hurry! Were you in any danger?

@San G.: I was behind a fence and he was pretty docile - no danger - I think he even began to doze off as I clicked away at him. From the pampering and the impressiveness of his size and rack, I'm guessing this was a show animal of some sort - used to close human attention. Longhorns are typically pretty small, like Herefords. This one musta been bred for size - he was like a mountain even lying down. He seemed as big as my little red truck!
Woe, what a great composition! Beautiful light too!

@Eleftheria: Thx, E-gurl! His crazy black snout swallowed up all definition so I had to psuedo-HDR him to create some depth in his face. Didn't want to but ... I had to, ya know?
Awesome shot Tex!! He is a biggin!!! :) I wonder if he says "eat mo' chiken"??

Thanks to your picture I have seen my first longhorn ever. It's impressive. Well framed. Did you bribe it to pose for you?

@Daniel: I told him if he sits still I will feed a Yankee to him.
