The Pope family, of Goodwater, has been raising Poncho. Jerel Pope said the longhorn has become a celebrity in Coosa County, AL.com reported.
"All my neighbors 'round here, any time they have company, they come over to see the longhorn. He’s just a big, gentle character," Pope told the website. "Everyone brings [food) with them -- he likes apples, carrots and marshmallows."
Jeral’s son, Dennis Pope, said the family considers Poncho "just a big pet."
"He's had so many people over the years stop by to see him, feeding him treats, that he's turned into a wonderful, big pet," Dennis Pope told AL.com.
