Lazy J's Bluegrass is a Texas Longhorn steer with a horn spread measuring nearly 9.8 feet across. Joe Sedlacek of Greenleaf, Kansas, the owner, has reason to be proud. Bluegrass took the Guinness World Record for the widest horn spread at a competition held by the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association.
Sedlacek says that the past 5 to 6 generations of Bluegrass's lineage have had very long horns. He missed a Guinness World Record last year by only a half inch. Another year's growth was enough to secure Bluegrass the title.
