Great shot Ron! Excellent stuff.

Thanks Mike.

BTW, is it just me or do those horns look like two huge cashews?

These horns can weigh up to 30 lb (14 kg), while the sheep themselves weigh up to 300 lb (140 kg). A very good read can be found a Wikipedia - Bighorn sheep.

For those that are not aware, the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep is the Colorado State Animal.

Cheers.

Ron
