Bighorn rams have heavy horns that grow larger as they get older. The horns are composed of keratin over a boney core. The horns stop growing during the mating season each year, which leaves a distinct ring on the horn which can be used to determine the age of an individual ram. Bighorn rams are one of my favorite photo subjects.
