Modern bone. Cow? Horse? Other?

Well, this is modern, I don’t even have to do a burn test. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but I was hoping someone could help with an ID.  I came across it when I was out on a hike through Little Death Hollow in southern Utah awhile back.  I don’t have any other photos of it, which will probably make the ID more difficult.  I’m thinking cow humerus, or maybe horse.  Thoughts?

The deltoid tuberosity looks more like cow than horse to me but it is difficult to say without seeing how it folds over the other end. Nice picture.

Thanks, that looks right, at least as good as we can do without any other views.
