He is a nice Ram, I can't tell enough from this Pic to say for sure one way or the other if He is Pure (if that is what You are asking) , although His Horns flaring that fast (right out of the Curl) is not desired by most "Mouflon purist" and many would say He is not pure because of it, but there is a strain of Mouflon that tend to do that here in the States, they were imported from the Frankfurt Germany Zoo by a rather wealthy Gentleman, in the Czech Republic there are a number of Mouflon that flare like Him....SCI states that the tips must not be the widest part of the Horn EXCEPT UNDER SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES...I always figured the "special circumstances" was when a Ram hits 40" He has no place to grow but out! I wouldn't breed to the Ram pictured....there it is, You asked for it, my Opinion that is!

Very true. If he wants him taken it should be soon. Other wise he will be Corsican looking .

Great looking ram and I agree with Casey and Don about the horns flaring out being an unusual Mouflon trait but you do see it in Europe.

What do you estimate his horn length at?

Another reason to shoot him soon is he will likely start brooming those horn tips off or breaking one.

Beautiful ram, but as already mentioned, the tips of the horns are not what I like in a mouflon. It looks more like a corsican type of thing then a true mouflon.

AGREED X3



If anyone is ever in doubt check with Hilonesome... that's my opinion.

We've heard from two of the best Mouflon breeders in Texas, in Ricky Hunt and Hilonesome, I would pay attention. The biggest thing is that, because there has been a lot of crossbreeding of sheep in Texas, the breed standards for Mouflon, exclude characteristics that do occur in Europe. If you were to have that ram mounted and told people it was shot in the Czech Republic people would accept it without question.
