This cute little guy growed up!

Rocksprings longhorn breaks Guinness world record for largest horn span

A six-year-old longhorn from Rocksprings has unofficially broke the Guinness world record for largest horn span on a steer.

The longhorn, whose name is Bucklehead, attended the Horn Showcase in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Oct. 4-5, where his horn span broke the world record, measuring 11 feet, 1.8 inches from tip to tip.

The previous record was 10 feet, 7.4 inches, set in May by a seven-year-old longhorn from Alabama named Poncho Via.

Paperwork is being reviewed by Guinness before Bucklehead's record can be deemed official and appear in the 2020 record book.

On a recent YouTube video, it's shown how he was measured at the showcase.

The owner of Bucklehead is 14-year-old Marceala Gonzales. Her brother, Leandro, is the handler and exhibitor of the longhorn.

Nearly five-and-a-half years ago, Marceala won Bucklehead at another show.

Five breeders were donating steers for a drawing, where Marceala's name was pulled out. She got to pick the steer of her choosing, and she chose 6-month-old Bucklehead.

Pauline Gonzales, the mother of Marceala and Leandro, explained how their team carefully transports Bucklehead to each show.

She said they have a personal chauffeur who drives him. Leandro tapes tennis balls on the end of the horns to protect them in his 8.5-foot wide transporting trailer.

"We have to be very careful, he is our big baby," Pauline said.

The next showing for Bucklehead is the Longhorn Show in Llano on Oct. 19-21. The record-breaking longhorn attends about 12-15 shows a year.

How would you get 10 1/2 foot horns inside an 8 1/2 foot wide trailer? Perhaps it isn't fully enclosed.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
