I was just watching a show about big horn sheep and, these are some amazing animals, they are equipped with 30 pound horns on top of their head, that are both used for fighting during mating season and, also protection from the ramming. I can't believe the force these guys hit each other with, it's like a couple mack trucks doing a head on collision. Large Rams from the rocky mountains can get over 500 pounds, they are also about 42 inches tall at the shoulder and, 79 inches long, they live in large herds and, have a life span of 12 to 14 years.

Absolutely right! My family also breed several sheep, precisely speaking is small goat, and their horns is not so big and super curved long like man bend them to be. When they fight, they all apply into their horns into and the sound when two sides horns colliding, you will worry about their horns gonna broken and their heads are going to explore. But after the dual, they just shake their tails and walk away, like nothing happened. But every time i saw, i will run to them to check their heads, i wondering why their heads are as hard as nut. And i also heard that the most powerful creature heart in the world is the one of goat, i saw the photos of goat climbing on rocky mountains, searching for foods, playing and walking, check the photo i found on Nairaland. http://www.nairaland.com/2396037/mountain-goats-amazing-goats-climbers

@TRBRocks420 My family cannot hold this wild goat, there are several types of goats as i know, and we breed those mild ones, like the photos as following, we breed them for giving birth to baby goats, and breed them to certain weight and sell them for earnings, and when it comes to festivals, like Chinese mid-autumn festival, we kill them for celebrating and feast.
