|'Game On' -Bighorn Sheep|
Edition of 48
The bighorn sheep is one of my favorite animals, but ironically, this is my first sculpture of one.
Michael and I hiked up a hill in southern Colorado where a small band was grazing. Three rams were
following a ewe, and the competition was keen. We watched one sideswipe an opponent, nearly knocking
him over a cliff... the rocks tumbled over the edge as he scrambled to safety.
I find their posturing during the rut intriguing, as their head-drop displays are directed at both
the ewes and rival males. For different reasons, of course!
