A sheep with four horns?

In the Bible we learn that Jacob gets a herd of sheep by divine intervention. Most Middle Eastern sources cite it is this sheep-the four horn-also known as “Jacob’s sheep”.

These unique creatures have horns that come down the side and curl like a typical wild sheep but also have top horns that are more goat-like. Having four horns sets them apart alone but the unique configuration makes them even more unique. I had the privilege of photographing this one on my friend Thompson Temples’s ranch near Vanderpool, TX.
