Red Bull

I am fond of this Longhorn – he has appeared in this blog before but he is such a handsome beast that he deserves more exposure.  He seems quite docile but you would not want to stand within the arc of those horns – a sudden turn of the head could have dire consequences; impaled by innocent curiosity.

Apologies to all those who were expecting a post on motor racing – perhaps he is called Sebastian or more likely Mark (@AussieGrit).
