Bull Weathervane – Texas Longhorn

Texas Longhorn Bull Weather Vane


The Texas Longhorn Weather Vane pictured was crafted of hand shaped copper with optional gold leafing on the horns. Arriving in the United States via Mexico, the Texas Longhorn is one of the most distinctive breeds of cattle today. Instantly recognizable, a Texas Longhorn is a perfect subject for creating a classic weathervane design.

Because each of our weathervanes is handcrafted to order we are able to utilize optional gold leaf to personalize your weather vane by matching an animal’s individual markings, adding a brand and/or putting the name of your operation on a custom designed arrow fletching, allowing you to display a one-of-a-kind sculpture piece. When displayed on top of a barn on a ranch, it can be written off as an advertising business expense. We also created a Texas Longhorn Weather Vane for an enthusiastic alum of the University of Texas at Austin, depicting their mascot, Bevo.

Customers of ours in Southern California are owners of a well known and very popular steakhouse. They were opening a new location and they wanted a Texas Longhorn Weather Vane with optional gold leafed horns for the second story turret of the new restaurant. They preferred the body of our Black Angus Bull Weather Vane and because we craft every weathervane to order, combining parts of two different weathervanes to create their ideal bull  presented no problem. It now sits proudly atop their new steakhouse.

The early Texas settlers obtained feral Mexican cattle from the borderland between the Nueces River and the Rio Grande to mix with their own eastern cattle. The result was a tough, rangy animal with long legs and long horns extending up to seven feet. Longhorn cattle have a strong survival instinct and can find food or shelter during times of rough weather. Longhorn calves are very tough and are able to stand after their birth sooner than other breeds.
