    Not a Bighorn. Possibly a Dall.

    I knew I came to the rite place you both are absaluetly correct. According to all the info I've read online as far as the nose being black and the horns pointing outward and they aren't as thick also the eyes are yellow... How do you price this type of sheep shoulder? Is it true you count the rings on the horn to figure out the age?

    Ms Holdsworth,

    I recently noticed your post. I am curious to know more details about your museum, its mission, its collections, location, etc. I have experience as well as some connections in and with museums and may be able to offer you some assistance with contacts, acquiring specimens, and so forth. Even though your post is 3 years old, I'll presume that you are still operating. Let me know if I can be of assistance. My ph: 936-874-2930.
