The Texas Longhorn is a breed that originated from Spanish cattle. Texas at the time was full of predators so the Longhorn became tough and could kill anything from grizzlies to mountain lions. The Texas Longhorn is the Mascott for the University of Texas Football team. For generations the Silver Spurs have provided the Longhorn that carries the name "BEVO". This year a new "BEVO" was introduced. The young Longhorn was branded with the month he was born "1" and the last number of the year he was born "2015" so it would have been a five. Fitting that this is the 15th BEVO used as the Texas mascott and the new BEVO bares the brand "15". GO LONGHORNS THIS IS YOUR YEAR!
