This is "Tex". Amidst 2,000 head of Black Angus momma cows, Tex always stood out in the herd. Several years ago, one of our neighbor's bulls jumped the fence and when spring rolled around, Tex was born. Expecting only black calves, to say he was a surprise was an understatement. At our branding, he was cut, branded, and turned back out with our momma cows where he lived out his entire life on the ranch here in the Sandhills. When he died, my Dad and Grandad felt it was only right to have a taxidermist friend of ours put him back together. For many years, he has been a talking point on the wall above the sale ring in Ogallala Livestock. It was only fitting, as my family had been selling cattle there for many years. I'm really excited to have him back, welcome home Tex!
