Male domestic sheep, called rams, can clearly be distinguished from females, or ewes, by their massive horns. Horn size alone is a direct indicator of the ram’s hierarchy within its flock. When establishing territory and hierarchy, dominant rams will battle each other with a series of roaming head-butts.
