little Bighorns

While returning from a trek into the high country yesterday I found a small band of Bighorns, including these lambs, grazing beside a small road near the river. Who can resist lambs?

Large numbers of Bighorns have died this year in our region from pneumonia for which there is no vaccine and no cure. They simply have no resistance to it. It was nice to see a good number of lambs in this group to help retain their numbers!
