    Those are not goats....but sheep. Goats have small, basically upright horns, while those of wild sheep curl around. The ram there is a younger male. He is not yet a "full curl" ram.

    You are correct -- my error. These are Mouflon Sheep from Corsica which run wild on Spieden Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State (as do Indian Stag and some other game animals).

    The curl of the ram's horn is a very nice line, but it seems to have some sort of blurry halo around it. I'm also not so sure about seeing so much white sky.

    Yes, those are sheep. This is a nice shot. I like the way that the trees are blurred in the background. The fact that the trees are without leaves give it a nice mood. It is not too busy in the back. Thanks for the picture.
