Promiscuity Among Bighorn Sheep

by Steve Reiss (Dalmdad Landscape Photography - www.dalmdad.com and https://www.facebook.com/Dalmdad.)
Bighorn sheep are the most highly promiscuous of any native big game animal.  
Ewes will accept more than one ram in rapid succession and the rams from 3 1/2 years of age and older are eager to breed as many ewes as possible.
From The Bighorn Sheep in the United States by Helmut Buechner (1960).
 A promiscuous couple?
