Rockport to Edinburg, TX

Yesterday we traveled from Rockport to Edinburg. We are now in the Rio Grande Valley. There are many palm trees and working farms. We saw cabbages, oranges, brussel sprouts and some we could not identify being picked and trucked. It seems very different to us to see road construction and farming being performed in January and February. We left the crookedly live oaks of Rockport and now have scrubby trees and bushes and palm trees. Today was around 60 degrees and cloudy. The rains held off but should hit tomorrow. We went to a National Wildlife Preserve and a bird watching paradise of a Texas State Park and could not take Sunny with us so we did not get to see the border birds and animals. We were right at the Rio Grande River, which is the border between Mexico and The USA. The Border Patrol is all over around here. Many signs are in both English and Spanish and some only in Spanish. When coming back home we saw a herd of about two dozen of what looked like cattle with large sheep horns. By the time the camera was ready, this is what we got. We don't know what they are but we will be looking for them again. If you click on the photo, it will be enlarged and the animal is in the center facing you. Do you know what it is?
