Texas Longhorn and friends


This is another picture I took last week when I was visiting family in Austin, Texas. They live in one of the small towns just north of the city and this handsome fellow posing for me is one of their neighbors. That is a donkey in the pasture directly behind him. Believe it or not, that other animal in the middle on the far right and almost out of the picture is a zebra. You may have to click on the picture to enlarge it for a better look. My sister and I had stopped on the side of the road so I could get a picture, but the cow was so preoccupied with grazing that he would not look up. My sister decided to bust out with a loud "moo" and he looked up just as I snapped the picture. It was pretty funny, but I guess you had to be there. Linking this post to Good Fences.

That is an odd assortment of four legged creatures all in view there at the one time Lois :)

It is nice to have a look at him with his big horns.

Karl Demetz said...

Really long horns, better not get too close...

That is a true Texas Longhorn but, I'm not quite sure what the zebra is doing in the mix. Loved the mooing story. I've done things like that myself.

What a great "mooing" giggle to start the day, Lois!! And a great capture for the day as well! Hope your week is going well!!

A zebra's a bit odd to be in that part of the world. Longhorns like this you'll never see up here.

Moo! Wonderful story, Lois.

VP said...

A good idea to attract his attention!

Marie said...

Awesome longhorn, and I'm glad he looked up. Not unusual to see exotic animals in Texas, too, thus the zebra. Good fence!

Felicia said...

Those cattle are really something aren't they! Sounds like your sister is a talented mimic!

visiting again after a long hiatus, been doing other things like Facebook and writing books.like the long horn.

Jack said...

The cow is thinking, "I wish these humans would stop yelling moo at me."

Ida said...

Well that's something you don't see together everyday. How funny about mooing at the Longhorn but I probably would have done the same thing. Glad he looked up.

He's an impressive critter. Odd to have a zebra in the pasture.
