Longhorn Steer Statue

Well, this was a surprise. I've driven this road a bunch of times and never seen this weathered-looking longhorn steer statue before. It's not on Google Street View from 2016, so it must be a fairly recent transplant, and it doesn't look like any mass-produced bull statue that I've seen before. Wonder where it came from.
