Cee-BW-Challenge-Horns

~~~~~

Horns from all over.

hereford cattle have horns.  However, PollHerefords do not have horns.

Similarly Poll Dorset sheep, in this case a ram,

do not have horns.

In both cattle and sheep horns have

been breed off the original livestock to

facilitate better animal husbandry practices.

Riverboat horn.

Trumpets…also called horn.

Do Giraffes have horns? 

Google states that a best guess is that

giraffe’s “horns” were originally

support structures for their antlers.

 

 

…for their antlers.   

Sockets that supported

the large racks which deer find so handy

during mating season in their tests

of strength and dominance.

Finally, a highly sort after horn, by some cultures.

Made of similar material which forms our fingernails,

it’s hard to see why rhino horn is valued.

I think I would drown if I tried to use mine for drinking.

This youngster was practicing its get lost look.

 Either that or waving goodbye.

One of our party was very keen to site an aardvark.

This was the best our guide could do .

Aardvarks are said to have a snout.
