everything here is somewhat oversized- the horn, the clasp on the chest... much to see here and support a hobby.
Picturit: This was such a great place to be and too short time to really check it out...

What a fine collection of stuff!
Picturit: Thank you, Ray. This was such a great place to be and too short time to really check it out...

Love these details, Astrid! That must have been a very hold ram!
Picturit: I am glad I never met this Ram in real life and there was no fence in between us.. I know I can run, but would never be able to out-run him... HA

Je n'aime pas trop les trophées d'animaux...
Picturit: I doubt that this was a trophy, Martine. This was at a sheep farm and there were many of these hanging around. It was maybe a kind of memorial to a good Ram???
Astrid.
In English, that would be Aries, and I love it! What an incredible specimen for the farm memorabilia! How fitting that it hangs in the dilapidated barn I posted on Monday!
Picturit: Ginnie I got lost in translation and spelled it wrongly. I loved those skulls, the details are amazing. It is the same farm indeed, what a place to visit.

Just imagine having a set of horns like this!

I'm not going to try..
Picturit: Don't you love it. I think I will have a head-ache at the end of te day...

Oh wonderful! I like the time-worn clutter and of course the sheep's head. That's a big skull! So much to enjoy in this image; what did you supply in the box bottom left?
Picturit: Don't you just love it and the way the horn is shaped and I think this was a 'famous' Ram on the farm. I am in the renovation this farm and needed some good parts to do so.... grin....

That would make you jump in the dark!
Picturit: .....and get you in the E.R of the hospital if that one hits your butt....
Love the skull though.

I have a sheep skull on my garden wall, but without horns Astrid. Not many people spot it.
Picturit: Next time can you please point that one out. I do have the name of your cottage in lead in the stone.
Astrid.
It is amazing some of the things you can come across. Good find!
Picturit: I love places like these, we saw so much however we had not the time to stay any longer... sad
Astrid.
Going by the size of the skull that must have been a pretty large Ram.
Picturit: I think this one was huge and one you need to respect, Brian....
Astrid.
That must have been a big sheep!
Picturit: I think so too, Tom. And I would have taken my distance if he would walk by..
Astrid.
Lots to admire here...
Picturit: Thank you, this farm was one big photo-op, to little time though.

Still impressive in this state - I can imagine you browsing in this old sheep farm shed.
Picturit: Indeed, very impressive. This was a big Ram and too bad we did not much time on this farm.

Excellent picture and title - you are wearing a tie now? So out of fashion smile
Picturit: The ties are in the box, that's why the box is there wink...
Thank you kindly, Louis. As always.
Astrid.
This is a cracking still life, Astrid. I really like it. What a beast that must have been! Well done with your I.D as well smile
Picturit: Thank you, Frank. I was really impressed with that skull, that must have been 'the monster of the valley'....
Thank you for your kind words.
Astrid.

Aries looks a bit fearsome and scary!
Picturit: Indeed he does and I think he was the 'monster of the valley'....
Astrid.
Oh, this is soooooo cool!!
Picturit: I was so impressed with this skull.
Astrid.
