The Inspiration

From the Animal Series inspired by a trip to the San Diego Zoo with my daughter.  Returning after several to the zoo, I felt it was time to continue the animal series. The animal series is not limited to wild animals, but all those that roam the earth. 

Quick Fact

Longhorns are known to be docile and pleasant, despite their intimidating appearance! One of their most endearing traits is their personality. 

They don't gain weight as easily as other breeds because of the harsh pastures they usually feed from. Longhorns are quite disease-resistant and have a very long life time.

Males and female Longhorns both sport horns, although horns vary in shape according to gender. 

Conservation Status

[ x ] Critically Endangered. The global population of Texas Longhorns is just over 3,000 animals, with approximately 1,200 Longhorns existing within the U.S.  The breed came close to disappearing back in the early 20th century. 

Bull Power Animal

Bull is a symbol of power, strength, will, and stubbornness. Bull represents wealth, sacrifice, potency, bravery and physical fertility. 

Call upon the Bull when you need to stand up for your beliefs or defend yourself in some situation. When you need stability, determination, and strength. When you need patience, or joint efforts on a project. 

When you call on Bull he obliges so be careful because Bull shows up in all his power and glory – he will not hold back. Be certain you are ready to step into and join this kind of power. It is no joke and can be scary if you aren’t up to the raw powerhouse of  the Bull.
