One of our neighbors was working with somebody else's longhorns, and the bull gored his horse. They can be dangerous big time. Ours were very aggressive. They didn't get much care as far as shots and stuff once they matured. They were just too dangerous. We did buy pour on dewormers and drove close to them in the truck. They ate well anyway. They were certainly none the worse for wear. They were extremely healthy but mean as the devil. Very pretty on somebody else's property.

Beautiful, I'm betting he crossed. Decent enough conformation though. AND, if you're smart, dealing with bulls that get this big, you typically have them trained in some way or another. My papa once told me a story about a rodeo bull who just couldn't be caught.

A group of them, including my papa, chased this bull around until the managed to get him into a corral that lead into a barn. He'd always charge them out of the corral. Well, the owner showed up, grabbed a rope, threw it over his head, and the bull was instantly as tame as a well trained dog, following the holder of the rope around with no qualms.

Like Celeste said, though. Longhorns, or any bull with long horns like the one in the OP, can be rather dangerous. Therefore, always pretty when owned by someone else. XD

Yes, all bulls, horns or not, have the potential to be really dangerous.

Yes, our longhorns, well a couple of them.. besty she was bottle feed so she is far from dangergous.. except those horns.. sometimes she forgets she has them and she got me once right under my jaw.. that could have been BAD. But we are careful around her because she is an animal and no one knows HOW they think. And then our bull star.. He is sorta tame. You can go in the pen and brush him and what not. But he has his days where he will tell you go away by flicking his horns at you.. flicking really isnt the word but still.. from now on..

once our cows calves are around 4 months old we put them in a specific chute/run/ pens thingy and we halter break them and are going to show them. Its the first time around doing this so its going to be fun.. since both calves are bull calves:/ lol

We used to raise longhorn crosses (had longhorn cows and a limousine bull) that we would use as our roping stock. When they got too big for that, the steers would go to the sale and the heifers would go out to be breeding stock. Most of the heifers/cows were relatively nice. They wouldn't charge or anything, but they could certainly jump about any fence they had a mind to .

The steers, on the other hand, weren't usually so nice. We used to have one that we called "Pancake". You didn't dare go into the pen where he was without being on a horse because he was guaranteed to flatten you like a pancake.

Our neighbor on Browning Ranch had 2 longhorn bulls that he used to ride....they had about a 15 ft spread of horns in their 20's before they were euthanized. They were monsters.

And both our babies are longhorn/charlotte crosses...theyre only about 8 months? I think haha and they got their horns growing in....very very hardy breed but yeah if you don't handle them alot theyll get mean.
