Affectionately dubbed “Baby Bevo” when he made his debut at a practically minuscule 1,100 pounds in 2016, Bevo has certainly outgrown his original nickname. Bevo XV, or Sunrise Spur, is still growing and has proven he’s not to be trifled with.

In lieu of gifts, Bevo XV is requesting donations to the Neighborhood Longhorn Program, which helps send kids to college. You can donate by joining the Bevo Fan Club.
