RICK SMITH: Unexpected visitor steers into ASU dorm|
It wasn't a bull stampeding through a china shop, but a longhorn Texas steer caused considerable excitement when it strolled through the new Centennial Village residence hall at Angelo State University last weekend.
"I was in my room when I heard a 'moo' from the hallway," said Elena Davies, a freshman student from Fort Worth.
"It was loud. I thought 'Oh my gosh!' I opened the door and, sure enough, there was my dad, leading Oreo down the hallway."
Elena's father is "Cowboy" Craig Davies, a 61-year-old entrepreneur, entertainer and animal trainer who operates a catering and entertainment company in Bandera.
The longhorn, named Oreo, is a not-quite-grown 8-year-old, 1,300-pound steer. Oreo's horns measure 6-foot-6 from tip to tip.
