The fiberglass bull statues shown below have neither message board signs nor blankets. They were probably produced by the same company that made the Sirloin Stockade bulls described on the previous page and marketed to other businesses.

Bull [gone]
Verona, NY
Chuy's
Fort Worth, TX
Charco
Broiler Steak
Dallas, TX
Kelly's Steak and Seafood
Boalsburg, PA
This Bull statue in Verona was installed in front of Joel's Front Yard Steak House when this photo was taken in 2009. The garland-wearing bull was named "Lucky". Supposedly, a tractor trailer carrying the statue broke down in the parking lot many years ago which paved the way for his acquisition. In 2014, the restaurant was renamed the Stampede Steakhouse & Saloon. In 2016, there was a devastating fire. The statue was unharmed but the future of the restaurant is not known as this point. In 2018, the statue was nearly stolen and was moved to storage until it can be secured to the ground. [map]

The Chuy's bull statue has been here since the restaurant was known as the Dixie House Cafe. [map]

Charco Broiler Steak has been here since 1963. This bull statue, nicknamed "Sonny the Steer", is located on the restaurant's roof. [map]

There is another rooftop bull at Kelly's Steak and Seafood. The bull statue was here when the place was previously known as the Boalsburg Steak House. [map]

Bull [gone]
Ringgold, TX
Lanning's Food Center
Plainview, MN
Bull
Winston-Salem, NC
This Bull statue at Lonestar Hereford Ranch was confined to a cattle pen when this photo was taken in 2011. By 2013, the statue was gone.

The Bull at Lanning's Food Center is located in the parking lot. [map]

The Bull statue in Winston-Salem is installed next to Thrift Way Meats & Produce. [map]

Kelsey's Steak House
Valparaiso, IN
Mercer Livestock Auction
Mercer, PA
Winston's Sausage
Chicago, IL
Bull
Gilboa, OH
Kelsey's Steak House features "Howie" the 24 foot tall bull. He was originally located at Howard and Sons Meats in Schererville, IN. In 1995, he was moved to Kelsey's. In 2005, they opened a new location just down the block and brought him along. For more, see this website. [map]

The Bulls in Mercer and Gilboa are further examples of the "woolly" type. [Mercer map]; [Gilboa map]

The Winston's Sausage bull statue is installed on the roof. [map]

Purple Sage Rib Company
Cortez, CO
Blossom the Bull
Binghamton, NY
Bull
Houston, TX
These two statues are like those described above but they do not have horns.

The Bull at the Purple Sage Rib Company is located next to the road. [map]

Blossom the Bull is located at the Discovery Center. It was previously installed on the roof of the Vestal Steakhouse and Seafood Grill in Vestal, NY. The statue was moved here and repainted in 2004.

The Bull in Houston is installed on top of the sign at Power Tires & Wheels. In 2008, the building housed the El Torito Mexican Restaurant. This Bull was there then. This statue may have looked like the two statues below but reworked with a rougher coat and a bent right front foot. [map]

Branding Iron
Family Restaurant
Durant, OK
Baby Bull's Restaurant
Pontiac, IL
These two statues are different from those shown above. Their halters, coats, ears, and faces are different and their hind legs are next to each other.

The Branding Iron Family Restaurant bull statue is installed on top of the business' sign poles. [map]

Baby Bull's Restaurant features this statue. He does have a rather juvenile look. He probably had a real chain under his chin instead of a painted one like the one in Durant. [second photo thanks Mark Comstock] [map]

Mike's Barbeque House
Nacogdoches, TX
Bull [gone]
Indianapolis, IN
The Bull at Mike's Barbeque House is installed on top of the restaurant's sign. This statue is similar to the two described above but with a different face, curlier coat, and no halter. These photos are from 2011. The statue was blown off the roof in 2015. He was repaired and reinstalled in 2016. [map]

The Bull at Karman Produce in Indianapolis was similar to those described above. Although it was about the same size, the body and face are different. The nostrils are unique. The statue was brightly painted and stood on a trailer among the lawn ornaments when these photos were taken in 2005. By 2010, the statue was gone and a BBQ stand had replaced the produce stand. I'm told that the bull was sold to someone in Fort Wayne. For more, see this website.
