|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. Our 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.
December 28, 2015: It's only been a month since the last ice storm. This one was a doozie! Rural Electric will be back on this next week or so, if the crews can make it happen. We lost count of the number of poles snapped like toothpicks with well over an inch of ice and 50-60 mph winds. First day or two we went through the chores to the tune of Simon and Garfunkel's
"Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip sliding away"
Well, we've changed our tune a bit and are now going with Merle Haggard's
"If we make it through December
Everything's gonna be all right I know
It's the coldest time of winter
And I shiver when I see the falling snow"
Longhorns hear the truck coming up the hill and come to meet it for a big serving of cubes and a few bites of hay. Then back to the tree-covered windbreak at the base of the cliff where they could hang out till the wind dropped - three days later.
If we make it through December (and January, maybe February, and perhaps a bit of March) we'll be fine.
Hang in there Longhorn Friends, and a Happy New Year to All!!
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.
