Today is my official chaperone day for my son's field trip to Garden of the Gods. Rather than show you another rock picture (today, anyway), I thought I'd post a picture of one of the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep that hangs out at Garden of the Gods. Here's hoping we see the herd!
The problem with Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep is that they resemble goats more than sheep (to me, anyway). We have mountain goats here that are all wooly and make me think of sheep. So I have to constantly remind myself which is which. Why would they do that? Here's a quick photo of a mountain goat:
Okay, okay, so it probably looks like a goat, too, but it's the wooly "fur" that gets me confused.
Random fact: A RM Bighorn Sheep's horns can weigh up to 30 pounds. That gives me a crick in the neck just thinking about it!
Two Announcements for ya':
1. I guest posted over at the Official A-to-Z Challenge Blog yesterday about how to make your links so they automatically open in a new window instead of replacing the current open page. Things were so crazy for me that I did not get the chance to add the link to yesterday's post on here, nor have I had the chance to respond to comments on either blog. I WILL be responding to comments later on today and getting all caught up!
2. Voting is now open on the A-to-Z Video Challenge: Click HERE to vote.
What do you think, do bighorn sheep look more like goats or sheep?
May you find your Muse.
