Get up close, personal with Texas Longhorns at SA Stock Show & Rodeo

The Cross T Ranch is showing off two of the beautiful beasts, Casino and Tex, at the Wildlife Expo.

A first at the SA Stock Show & Rodeo in 2018 is to get up close and personal with a Texas icon -- a 2,500 pound Texas Longhorn.

The Cross T Ranch is showing off two of the beautiful beasts, Casino and Tex, at the Wildlife Expo.

"The Texas Longhorn is one of the most unique beautiful sweet, smart animals you can be around, and I love every minute of it. And the people are always hypnotized when they look at them," said Charlotte Browning, of the Cross T Ranch.

Our own David Sears mounted Casino, and said the moment was "pure Texas."
