Texas Longhorn – Witchita Mountains, Lawton, Oklahoma
Is it really a Texas longhorn if it was born and raised in Oklahoma? Who cares? I guess I do for the sake of argument. In fact, the breed was created from feral Mexican cattle and later saved from extinction in the hills of Oklahoma. I think Texmexlahoma Longhorn cattle would be a more appropriate name. This particular Texmexlahoma Longhorn and her calf were swimming through a golden field of native prairie grasses just outside Lawton, OK. I waited for the calf to nurse just to make the photo a bit more interesting. This park is known for its bison herd, but it is also full of longhorns, elk, deer, and cute little prairie dogs. I saw plenty of each during this two day trip.
