Here goes, my question:

From what creature was the Horn of Gondor, that Boromir carried, made?

The Great Horn was made from the "White Ox of the East". It was never referred to as the Horn of Gondor in Tolkien's literature.

The actual term for the beast was "Kine of Araw" if I remember correctly.

" 'Verily,' said Denethor. 'And in my turn I bore it, and so did each eldest son of our house, far back into the vanished years before the failing of the kings, since Vorondil
father of Mardil hunted the wild kine of Araw in the far fields of Rhun.'"

Mertaal gets an honourable mention, but specifically it I was looking for the "Kine of Araw".

btw Kine is the archaic plural of cow.

So as it is a cow not an ox, and Drauglin had the full name, he's up next.

I bow to Dragulin's superior knowledge on the subject! Looks like the "oxen of the east" were the descendants of the creature in question.

However, on a pedantic side note:

ox (ɒks)

n., pl. ox•en for 1,2, ox•es for 3.
1. any of various large, bulky bovids, as domestic cattle, water buffaloes, and yaks, esp. a castrated adult male used as a draft animal.
2. Informal. a clumsy, stupid fellow.
[before 900; Middle English oxe, Old English oxa; c. Old High German ohso (German Ochse), Old Norse uxi, oxi]

I won't have too much internet access for the next 2 weeks, so you can go Mertaal.

Mmm well Arwen's Granny and Grandpa were Eärendil and Elwing, who were Aragorn's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-(runs out of greats...) grandparents too...

Eärendil the human,and Elwing the elf-maid. Having two sons Elros the Half-Elven who chose humanity and founded Numenor and of course Elrond the Half-Elven, well who doesn't know ol' Elrond???

It would appear so. You can go next if you want. We should add a rule that if the person who posted the question does not reply within a week or two weeks, we should just assume it's right and the person who guessed first can take a turn. Just an idea to keep it running.

Here's a hard one:

What are the two possible origins of the Elfstone given to Aragorn by Galadriel?
