Attributed to John Woodhouse Audubon, the Rocky Mountain Sheep is an impressive creature set in a scene with ram, ewe and calf. It was said "that the horns of the old rams attain a size so enormous, and a curve so much forwards and downwards, that they effectually prevent the animal from feeding on level ground." Rocky Mountain Sheep by John James Audubon
