About the Bighorn Sheep

Bighorn Sheep Mount for SaleBighorn sheep are one of two species of mountain sheep in North America. Rocky Mountain bighorns inhabit the mountains from Canada south to New Mexico. Bighorn rams are best known for their heavy, curled horns. These massive horns are a symbol of status and a weapon used in battles for dominance across the Rocky Mountains. Fighting for mating rights, males face each other, rear up on their hind legs, and hurl themselves at each other in charges of some 20 miles an hour. The resounding clash of horns can be heard echoing through the mountains for miles as the confrontation is repeated—sometimes for hours—until one ram submits and walks away. The animal's thick, bony skull usually prevents serious injury.

A Rocky Mountain bighorn ram's horns can weigh 30 pounds, more than all the bones in his body combined. The ewe’s or female’s also have horns, but they are of smaller size.

Bighorn’s range in color from light brown to grayish or dark brown. It has a white belly, rump and muzzle. Males weigh between 125-300 pounds, females weigh between 75-200 pounds. Its hooves are hard around the outside and soft on the inside. They are legendary for their ability to climb high, steep, rocky mountain areas.
