Here's
another one of our Brood! Meet Tumbleweed. He is a bright, red and
white, twelve-year-old registered Texas Longhorn Steer with very
handsome, flashy, facial markings. My what Big Horns you have!
Tumbleweed's horns measure about 78" tip-to-tip, with a nice
classic twist. A RGPS steer, he has received extensive professional
training by my father, making him a solid Lead Riding and Driving
Steer.








Tumbleweed
handles easily. He pulls and rides with his head down. A very gentle
beast, he is a “woman's steer”, driven alone all over town by a
woman in her 60's, my mother, Marie. Tumbleweed and Mom are
well-known all over the area, having participated in many parades,
fairs, and other countless events throughout the years. With a sweet
personality, Tumbleweed follows you everywhere, sticks his nose
inside your vehicle to get treats, and gets along very well with
other animals. He is not a huge steer, and is often the one that we
ask to train the younger generation of Steer Drivers in our
constantly growing family. Kids love him.
