There have always been black longhorns far as I know..a very common early color was a brownish/black with a red or brown topline & poll. We now call this Parker Brown. I am the owner of the black bull referred to earlier, Zorro FF (or I was until we had to put him down last week). I have a solid black calf on the ground now and have sold several solid black longhorn bulls for commercial use over the years. I also know where there are some available now in OK. They are very popular for commercial first calf heifers, though Zorro was used in a registered longhorn program.
