Texas Longhorn earns the name, breaking the Guinness record



A Texas Longhorn? Well, that's an understatement.

In fact, a Lone Star Longhorn broke the Guinness World Record because it has the longest horn spread on an ox.

The record-breaking horns – they have a span of 10 feet-7 – belong to Poncho Via, a 7-year-old specimen that actually lives in Alabama.

Poncho was named after a Pancho Villa, a Mexican revolutionary general of the early 20th century. The name giver of the beast was six months old when his owner, Jeral Pope, and his wife saw him and needed him.

The popes realized that Poncho, at the age of four, may have record-breaking horns. They noticed that he was just outgrowing and did not curl up like those of his animal contemporaries.

Guinness confirmed on May 8 that Poncho's horns were slightly longer than the previous record holder Sato.

Pope describes Poncho as "a tall, gentle character" loved by the community in Clay County, a community southeast of Birmingham.
