Clash of Titans

These are the big boys, apex bulls of the herd.
It is not a death match, they have worked it out many times before.
Many other lesser bulls have been injured, some will die.
They are more or less equals, these big guys, somewhat rivals.
When they connect, it is with care to match up the horn and the tines.
It is a thing to behold.
