Description: A depiction of a common ranch animal often seen in the Lone Star State called the Texas Longhorn. The bovine is lounging in an open meadow of lush green grass. This piece would make a great addition to any rustic, rural, or western-themed room. The painting is signed by artist Teresa Bernard.
This Texas Longhorn painting does not need to be mounted in a frame before it is put on view. It is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas which allows the composition to extend around the edges of the canvas. However, if you prefer to have it framed, it will look great!
The Texas Longhorn is a common breed of registered cattle in Texas. They get their name from the breed’s characteristic longhorns. Some sets of horns on these massive bovines can reach a span of 7 feet tip to tip. You have to see one of these magnificent animals in person to appreciate those vast horns. I live in East Texas, and there are several longhorn ranches near our small homestead. I love driving past those places and seeing the longhorns grazing and resting in their pastures. They were the inspiration behind this painting of a Texas Longhorn sitting in a meadow.
Some Fun Facts About Texas Longhorns
- The Texas Longhorn is descended from the first cattle brought to America by Christopher Columbus that bred with native cattle. The breed consists of approximately 80 percent Spanish blood and another 20 percent of “mongrel” stock.
- Texas Longhorns come in all colors and patterns, and no two look exactly alike. Their coat pattern can be flamboyant and loud, while others are more subtle in color.
- Both male and female Longhorns have horns, although they will vary in shape and length according to gender. Longer horns are more desirable. The longer the horns, the more valuable the cow or bull. Calves will begin to grow their horns by three weeks of age.
- There are Texas Longhorn ranches all over America. Longhorns easily adapt to all temperatures, from hot to cold climates. This breed of cattle can thrive in terrains and climates where other breeds have difficulty living.
