We got into longhorns approximately six years ago. Obviously, we are romantics, and had to go with America's breed of cattle from the Old West. Many modern cattlemen like to have quick growing fat loaded animals. We are more interested in the character and beauty of the animal. Here are some pics of our herd.
Longhorns add a character to your fields that just isn't there with traditional breeds.
Bull Bridge--Herd Sire
Venus Bull Bridge 2001 calf
Bull Bridge: Herd Sire, fairly strong color genetics, most calves end up white with brown spots concentrated around the neck and head regions. However, he has produced two all red calves. Nice horn rack, approximately 34 inches tip-to-tip.
Musica and her 2001 heifer calf. Musica is our oldest and most reliable cow. As you can see her horns have started to go out to the sides. We're expecting 10 more good years of breeding from her at least. She produces fast growing nice calves.
Gracie Burns: Very tall cow, looks like her horns will follow same lines as her mother Musica. Produces fast growing large calves.
Lela --Without Calf this year.
Lela: Calves have great conformation with good horn growth. Missed the cycle this year though.
