Bizarre and amazing. Four horns per sheep-head - ouch !
I was hoping his name was Jacob but it seems they're all called Jacob :)

Horns and attitude, I wouldn't want to tick it off!

Apparently the horns are for defense purposes. The sheep were bread to go after predators and they are companions to a heard of other sheep or cows..

Other than stature why would you need a set of horns like that? its like radar for predators, great weapon unless your under a tree! Thanks for sharing! Its a new one for me!
