On a recent trip to the Texas Hill Country, we had a chance to ride through the Blue Ridge Ranch, in Llano to take a few photos. (Thanks Susan!) Not having a lot of cattle experience, we weren’t sure how their longhorns would react to several guys hopping out of a pickup with cameras. Once they realized we were not there to feed them, they soon returned to their grazing.
These guys are as big as Texas and a very stately animal. According to their website, this young bull is BRR Smoke’n Mirrors. This 2.5 year old fine specimen already has great horns and just seemed to exemplify what a longhorn was to look like. Thanks again to Blue Ridge Ranch for allowing to take a visit and admire these Texas icons.
I wasn’t sure which way to process the image, so I did it with several variations, so make sure you scroll down to see all three.
