The Bighorn Sheep

 
A few of my photos of the Bighorns from the last few days.
 

The Lambs are so cute and so laid back in
 the way they mingle in the herd.

 
The Rams are in their rut so lots of posturing as they
compete for the females. 

 
Notice how this Ram has rubbed off the ends of his horns,
called brooming.

 
Twins...

 
Mom and her little one.

 
There were four Rams in this herd and he was
definitely the biggest and most striking.

 
Cute, cute, cute!!!!!

 
One of the Ewes with a broken horn that is growing back.


A handsome Ram with his upper lip curled
as he follows the scent of a female in heat.
 
Definitely a highlight of my day to be able to
take this many photos of such a beautiful and healthy herd.
