There are many different opinions on how many horns a sheep can have. However, most sources say that a full grown sheep typically has two to four horns.

Let’s take a closer look…

What is the difference between ewe and sheep?
There can be a few key differences between ewes and sheep, but at their core they are both mammals of the family Bovidae. Ewes are slightly taller than sheep, have shorter horns and a more pointed face. They also have thicker fur on their tails, shoulders, chest and neck – essential for keeping them warm in wintertime. Sheep are heavier animals than ewes, with rounder bodies and larger heads. Their fleece is typically much finer than that of an ewe’s wool – perfect for use in high-quality fabrics like tweed.


Worth knowing

The largest population of sheep in the world is found in New Zealand. There are many reasons for this high concentration, but the foremost reason may be that the country has a long history of stable, renewable energy sources (e.g. geothermal and hydroelectric), ample grazing land, and few predators.

Sheep are able to thrive on low-quality grasses and shrubs (as opposed to cows, which require high-quality forage) making them well suited to New Zealand’s diverse landscape. The country also has significant areas of wolf-, cat-, and deer-free wilderness, ideal habitat for grazing sheep without risk of predation. In addition, domestic sheep don’t compete with native wildlife for food or resources; they instead consume plants that would otherwise die from overgraze

In order to answer this question, we must first understand the difference between a ram and a sheep. A ram is an adult male sheep that has been castrated (or have had their testicles removed). Sheeps are female sheep.

Cows have four teats instead of horns, but throughout the world there are still some cows with horns. A bull is a mature male deer that has shed its antlers. Cows and bulls are the same species, but they are not the same animal.
