How old?

Recommended Posts

Having a little bit of a hard time on the rings from that pic but I'd agree with around 7.

Not easy to see on this pic but you can usually distinguish a 3 year complex and a 4th year ring, which is often one of the darkest. Somewhere on the 4th to 5th year rings the horns start to show the cracks and chips from competing in the pecking order. This ram has broomed off the lamb tips and is pushing rings at least a couple past the 4 year ring. I also would guess he is at least 7 or 8 years old and a nice ram to harvest.

 

When judging for score I like a pic as straight up from the front as possible and one from the side to help guess length and age. If you have those please share them here.

For us guys that don't understand the aging thing is there anyway one of you guys could take the pic and draw a line at what would be considered each year ring?
