Let’s call this Sheep Sunday and feature this handsome fellow.
He was following some ewes in the canyon last weekend and clearly looking for love. Bighorn sheep are Colorado’s official state animal and, in my opinion, a very fitting one to have chosen.
Like the terrain and the original inhabitants and settlers of the Centennial State, they are tough, rugged and strong. Rams can push toward 300 pounds and are impressively powerful.
For this image, I did a conversion to black and white which helps to really highlight the fine details of this guy’s awesome eyes, horns and fur.
