"Hi Dad" - Desert Bighorn Lamb and Ram - Zion National Park, Utah

This lamb has come up to stand by a mature ram who may or not be its' father.  Rams join the family groups of ewes and lambs in early winter during the rut. The rams usually stay with other rams in herds by themselves for most of the year, although that is not a hard and fast rule.
This ram has broken off the tip of his right horn during a battle with another ram.
