|Beaver Creek Longhorns: Registered Texas Longhorns|
Beaver Creek Cattle Co., located in north-central Oklahoma, is home to Longhorns with striking eye-appeal. Our Longhorns have great color, conformation, disposition and big horns.
Coloration of longhorn cattle is fascinating. BCC longhorns show tremendous variation in colors as we strive for "every color in the rainbow". Horn shape is almost as varied as color. What wonderful eye-appeal these animals have as they decorate the Tallgrass Prairie!
Most of our cows are for sale and prices are included next to the pictures. A few are marked nfs (not for sale) for various reasons - often sentimental! Price listed is for the cow only unless stated otherwise.
October 23, 2014: We have added longhorns to the "Sales" page from Casa del Toro longhorn ranch!!
October 31, 2014: This is a follow-up on Tiara and the two calves she is raising. Both calves are doing well, and Tiara is filling the role of mom and foster-mom better than we ever could have hoped for.
Tiara understands that she gets more feed than any other cow on the place and she seems to enjoy her special treatment!
October 4, 2014: Don't know how many folks remember Orren Mixer of Arcadia, Oklahoma. He was a gifted artist and a good friend. He lived in a many-windowed home surrounded by his flashy-colored longhorn cattle. He painted the ideal quarter horse for the symbol of the Quarter Horse Association. He also painted a wonderful longhorn cow with her calf, titled "Good Mama". Each day as I sit down to update my website, I see the painting hanging over my computer.
This morning, in the backyard, there was a variation on the theme of Orren's beautiful painting that seemed appropriate to share.
First a little background. Tiara and Sally are both older cows that have been in the herd many years. Sally was born here and Tiara was a youngster when she arrived. Both are very gentle and have always hung out with each other. When some folks came to look at cows several years ago, I turned around and there was one of the little boys, about 3, smiling from ear to ear, sitting on Sally's fat back where his dad had placed him. I was a bit shocked, as Sally's had never been sat on before. But all went well, and the family had stories to tell when they got back home.
Now it is too late to make a long story short, so here's the rest of the tale. Sally and Tiara have calves about the same time each year. Sally's bag was injured 3 years ago and now produces almost no milk. So Tiara feeds Sally's calf each morning as well as her own. Today was a chilly morning with the first frost of the year and the cows and calves found a sunny spot to lie down. Tiara had both calves with her at the time, as Sally was elsewhere for the moment. The red calf in front of Tiara is Sally's, the black calf behind her is her own. It was a wonderful re-enactment of Orren Mixer's painting.
Our longhorns are friendly!!!
The ranch is located on the shores of Kaw Reservoir where Beaver Creek runs into
the lake. The land was part of the Kaw Reservation and backs up to the
Osage Reservation. It's on the southern end of the Flint Hills, so it's
rocky, but grows wonderful bluestem pasture. It has never been plowed.
I have three sons and their families who are great to help when
needed, especially for the big items like fencing, yearly vaccinations, and
pulling me out when I get stuck in the snow. Good friends and neighbors pitch in
Sometimes it is best to view the world from a secure location.
