Looking at this bad boy from Douglas, you can tell that he’s got one impressive rack. Come to think of it, that would’ve worked better if this had been a ewe. Now we feel sheepish. Seriously though, Bighorn sheep are impressive specimens of ovine virility. In this case, size really does matter. A bighorn’s curved horns can weigh in at 30 lbs, while the sheep himself can top 300. Now that’s nothing to sneeze at.
So prevalent was the Bighorn once, that he became part and parcel to Native American culture within many tribes. When they were nearly driven to extinction by hunting, growing prevalence of domestic sheep and diseases, a push was made to help them come back from the brink. So they went from around 2 million, to only a few thousand, and are now happily, flourishing from the mountains of Canada, the western United States and northern Mexico. Like domestic sheep, they live in herds, but aren’t kept in check by a single ram. Rather, the males all duke it out, and the leadership falls to a string of the most dominant males. This means there’s not just one lucky guy getting busy with all the ladies, but several – ensuring the flock’s survival by sheer numbers.
Douglas brings the rugged and lonely majesty of these athletic and agile sheep to life with their soft plush kohair bighorn stuffed animal. At 8 inches tall, he is the perfect size for all sorts of adventures, snuggles and fun.
