IF you ever wanted one of these Nice SHEEP shoulder mounts, for decoration here IT IS!ANIMAL SUMMARY: A mature adult Stone ram has a body weight of about 180 to 220 pounds, but occasionally they can be 250 pounds or more. Females (ewes) are considerably smaller. The Stone sheep has been aptly described by wildlife scientist Valerius Geist as a Dall sheep in evening dress. It is a handsome animal, differing from the Dall mainly by not being white. Individuals vary greatly in color and pattern, ranging from almost white in the north through shades of gray and brown to nearly black in some areas.
Sheep that appear black at a distance actually have a brownish tinge at close range. Stone sheep with "lighter" coloring are often considered Fannin sheep. Fannin sheep are typically found in the northwestern most regions illustrated on the species locator map. Sheep of various colors may be found in the same group. The head, and often the neck, are a lighter color than the body.
The muzzle, belly, backs of legs, and rump are white. The tail is black, and is usually connected by a dark band to the dark hairs of the back. Older rams sometimes have a dark band across, or partially across, the white belly.
The Stone sheep is somewhat larger and chunkier than the Dall sheep, with a larger and relatively wider skull, and heavier, darker-colored horns. Horns are brown or dark amber and exhibit considerable variation in size and shape.Females have short, slender horns.
