GOODWATER, Ala.—A Texas longhorn in Alabama has set a mark recognized by the Guinness World Records for longest horns, with a span wider than the Statue of Liberty's face.

News outlets cite Guinness World Records as announcing last week that Poncho Via's horns measured just over 10-feet-7-inches as of last month, beating all previous records. The 7-year-old steer belongs to a family in Goodwater, just southeast of Birmingham. Poncho's owner Jeral Pope says he brought Poncho into the family when the steer was 6 months old.

Pope says Poncho is a gentle giant with a soft spot for apples, carrots and marshmallows.
