Texas Longhorns have many well known traits but the most recognised of them all is their famous long horns. This page will showcase Horseshoe B Longhorns very own Johnny Reb AKA 'JR'
JR was born on January 3, 2005 and at an early age he showed exceptional horn growth. Once we knew that he was going to be something special we measured his horns regularly and the rate of growth amazed us. We decided in 2011 to see how he stood up against the beast that held the Guinness World Record (another Texas Longhorn) and decided to submit an application. After obtaining a verified measurement of his horns we submitted the claim to Guinness World Records in London and within weeks we received the certificate that stated he was the new Guinness World Record holder. His photo and details are in the 2013 Guinness World Records book.
At his passing in 2020 his horns measured more than 10 feet 4 inches or 3.15 metres tip to tip and he is now on proud display in the 'JR GALLERY OF HORNS' that was named in his honour.
