J. Frank Dobie in "The Longhorns," stated "The Longhorns were more than a breed - they were a race. Gaunt, wiry, intractbale, they were themselves pioneers in a hard stange land."

Texas Highways magazine in July, 2005, stated, "As as authentic Texas icon, the Longhorn stands proudly with the Alamo and the Long Star flag. No other creature personifies perseverance, survival and the indomitable Texas spirit quite like it.

The Texas Longhorn, in addition to their sheer beauty and majesty, are by nature gentle and intelligent. The Longhorns at Sunset Inn can trace their ancestry back to the Texas Longhorn herd at the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge (WMWR). The initial WMWR herd was established in August 1927 by the Federal government to save the longhorn from extinction. The initial herd has twenty cows, three steers, three bulls and four calves. Additionally, Rusty and Rosie have ancestry back to the YO Ranch in Mountain Home, Texas.

At Sunset Inn we maintain a "traditional Texas Longhorn herd." We raise four calves each year. These calves are sold when they are approximately ten months old. All have been vaccinated (1) wormed, branded and trained to be hand fed.

The Longhorns at Sunset Inn are registered with the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America. When a Longhorn is sold the registration is transferred to the new owner at no charge.
