They Call Me Coach

The title of this painting may sound a little strange. Usually there is a reason for such things. So, here is the story about the title of this painting. The wife of the couple that owns this bull bought it as a surprise for him. He always said how much he liked Longhorn cattle. Wished he had some Longhorns of his own someday. Well, she surprised him alright, on his birthday one year. And you ask, "where did the name come from"? Her husband happens to be the headcoach of the football team at their high school. Since then they have raised several Longhorns and many of them were given names relating to the sport of football. Check out my website for more western, equine and Longhorn paintings.
