This new steer’s horns are ten inches in diameter from the base and he is believed to be between seven to eight years old.

The steer is also docile.

This is the final installment from Barb and Harold Minge, alongside the six longhorns they received last Friday.

This brings their total to one steer, one bull and 18 longhorns.

They are not worried about the steer’s massive horns but want to be careful when placing all of the animals together.

“They actually do a pretty good job of maneuvering themselves as they go around them,” said David Wolf, Executive Director. “The one thing we are going to have to watch, and we do have them in separate pins from the new set we got versus the old set, is when we integrate them. We will integrate them slowly so that they can get used to each other and we don’t have any competition.”

They are the most photographed at their museum.
