You could just use this logo and the article at the following link to create a chart.

RE: Texas Longhorn Pattern
I couldn't find one so I actually created my own pattern for one last week. I'm doing a dishcloth (or golf rag if it is too big). I'd be happy to send it to you, but not SURE that it is perfect as I'm still knitting it.

Now that I'm done, I wish I'd seen this link AND wish I had photoshop. LOL... Oh well, my husband gave me a thumbs up for the design so I'm happy with my hand-charted one.

RE: Texas Longhorn Pattern
Made my the most cut and piece way there probably is, but since it was my first time/attempt... Well, I'm happy.

http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/matrix/e-index.html is what I used to create my graph paper. I then used a pix of the longhorn logo and traced to the graph pattern and then marked it as closely as could to match the logo. I will gladly send you what I created later this evening/tomorrow morning if you would like to see it laid out? Unfortunately, I left it at home today as I brought a different project to work on during lunch.

Another source you might try... I used this as well (basically, I used several methods and then piecemealed them all together to get the result I wanted...I did mention I'm not experienced at this so obviously went about everything the LONG way?). www.microrevolt.org. Use the KnitPro on their site. It does a somewhat good job but I still had to adjust a lot of what it spit out cause it did all the shading and I still felt that the logo was "off" a bit.

My Texas Longhorn Pattern
As promised, I've attached a copy of the pattern I created for my Texas Longhorn dishcloth I'm making. In order to look "right" you have to have a min of 3 on the bottom of the longhorn. Odd numbers seemed to work better than even to get it started.

Anyway, I hope this helps you in your endeavors.

i thought because i'm making a blanket, that the long-horn would have to be bigger, so i doubled it. and since i can't make my own online, i used some graph paper i had and did it by hand:

Actually, I did my pattern the EXACT same way and completely agree with your "exhausted" smiley. It was a bit daunting. However I was fearful that you wouldn't be able to see it well if I took a pix so I put it on an excel spreadsheet that I'd adjusted columns/rows for so that you could see it.

I would recommend, since you are making it larger, expanding the horns a bit more. I couldn't due to space constraints but I think 3 -5 more out on each side would be groovy. IMO.

Sorry I didn't have one to the size you needed but glad you found it useful.

Be sure to post a pix when you are done! I'd LOVE to see the finished product.
