The Texas Longhorns are direct descendants of the first cattle introduced to the New World. The ancestral cattle were brought by colonizer Christopher Columbus in 1493 to the Caribbean island that would become Hispaniola, to supply food to colonists. Between 1493 and 1512, Spanish colonists brought additional cattle in subsequent expeditions.[8] The cattle consisted of three different breeds; Barrenda, Retinto and Grande Pieto.[9]

Over the next two centuries the Spanish used the cattle in Mexico and gradually moved them north to accompany their settlement. They reached the area that would become known as Texas near the end of the 17th century. The cattle escaped or were turned loose on the open range, where they remained mostly feral for the next two centuries. Over several generations, descendants of these cattle developed to have high feed- and drought-stress tolerance, and other "hardy" characteristics that have gained Longhorns their high reputation as livestock.[10][11]

Early Anglo-American settlers in east Texas, then part of Mexico, obtained feral Mexican cattle from the borderland between the Nueces River and the Rio Grande. They bred them to their own eastern cattle. The result was a tough, rangy animal with long legs and long horns, extending up to seven feet. The interbreeding produced changes in color of the breed. The varieties of color ranged from bluish-grey, and various yellowish hues, to browns, black, ruddy and white, both cleanly bright and dirty-speckled.[12]

Portuguese cattle breeds, such as Alentejana and Mertolenga, are the closest existing relatives of Texas Longhorns

Ready to Hang Metal Prints

These ready-to-hang metal prints represent an art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Metal prints have more detail and richer colors than canvas. Metal-finished images will take on a good luminescence but not to the level of acrylic products. The colors are vibrant, and the luminescence is excellent. They are available in sizes up to 48” x 96”.

Classic Fine Art Museum Quality Paper preferred for Color or Black and White Prints

I prefer this paper for the best classic fine art display medium for Color and Black and White. My work has been printed on this paper thousands of times and displayed in collections worldwide. Its surface is smooth with a subtle texture and a slightly warm base that produces very pleasing B&W and Color prints reminiscent of platinum prints. Fine Art Rag paper meets the highest industry standards regarding density, color gamut, color graduation, and image sharpness while preserving the special touch and feel of genuine art paper.
