Now Those Are Some Horny Cattle


Spotted in a pasture near Josie's pre-school. 


I'm guessing they're Ankole -Watusi or some iteration thereof. Pretty amazing.


I have to wonder though--how would one transport these critters? Those horns wouldn't fit in an ordinary cattle trailer. Or in a head gate, such as we use for worming or doctoring our cattle. 

And you sure wouldn't want to anger one.

NOTE: Where I live, cattle with horns are called horny, those without are called muley.

I wonder what damage they do to each other when they get riled?

We're watching the series 1883, which features a herd of Texas longhorns. They seem quite placid. I suspect they're actor cattle and have been used in films all their lives.

Interesting subject, since I know nothing about it!
