    Default anyone know the story on this sheep?

    Funny video. The best view of the sheep is if you freeze the video around 2:17. Amazing sheep, love the coloring of his horns.

    that is a pig for sure!!!! I agree it looks like the horns might have been died at one time.

    Whatever it is, it is a reproduction. Very large though.

    Okay, a long shot because someone here probably knows that taxadermist from Valdez and the actual story of that sheep. but to me it looks identical to the 46 incher taken by bob Cassell in the alaska range in tony russ's book. Maybe a reproduction of that ram?

    Well I looked at that ram again and the right horn is splintered so can't be a repro of the cassel ram.
