Sheep?

I feel stupid asking this, but oh well. I bought a bunch of misc. taxidermy supplies and forms. Include was a tanned cape. It is a sheep, white, with hare all the same length on the neck. In the auction was also a corsican shoulder form. So I was thinking this is just a texas dall. I thought texas dalls had long hair on the front of the neck? Can anyone clarify this?

during colder weather the Tx dall has longer hair on the front of the neck; it is mostly shed for the heat.
It could also have been cut to match the rest of the hair.
A wild Dall is a much larger animal than a mouflon, probably a shoulder form would be at least twice the size.


ok

The hair does not look cut. It is also thick like a winter coat not summer.
