Let's see....powerful whacking machine, full of ability to survive in tough conditions that makes humans shudder and run for cover, defender of girls he keeps safe from roaming intruders, defends to the death. Noble, strong, attentive, a leader, watchful, feeling, short-lived. Rams are amazing creatures. Yet, for all their strength, determination, and aliveness, I can't help but think their horns, when viewed from the back, are just plum cute. I'm sorry.
