Mmm…steak! No wait, we didn’t mean that.
Steak is yummy, but if you eat this plush bovine, you’ll end up with nothing but a mouthful of fuzz. Yuck! So instead, we actually suggest playing with him. His name actually comes from the part of the cow where the meat for a t-bone or Porterhouse steak comes from. But this bovine bully is no pushover. Steers (male bovines) aren’t the only ones with those horns on their heads. Female cows and calves usually have their horns removed, or there are even some who are born without them. It may seem cruel, but ranchers remove the horns so the cows don’t hurt one another, the farmers themselves, or (in the case of dairy cattle) the equipment used for milking.
But the big boys? They keep their horns. No bull here, we’re talking about Longhorn steers, which are a unique breed of cattle known for…what else? Their long horns. Cattlemen can measure the horns from base to tip, or they can measure the space between horn tips. Sometimes this can reach up to seven feet! Wow. Those are some wicked horns. Usually, a longhorn’s horns stretch out from the sides of their head, but the tips can curl or angle in many different ways, meaning that no two steers are alike.
Douglas’ 8 inch-long take on this iconic American animal is made from kohair, so he’s super soft and cuddly. And those horns? Well, he may just be boss of your plush barn yard, but don’t expect him to go up against a real bull!
