Commonly bright white in color. Usually 3 to 8-inch mane on lower neck of males (thicker and longer in winter). Horns in males only that circle and turn outward at tips and are generally tan to light brown in color. Lengths of 14 inches and up, typically 28 to 35 inches in adults. The males' horns can weigh up to 30 lbs and can actually outweigh the rest of the bones in their bodies, combined. Females, called ewes, also have horns that are smaller. Texas dall males typically weigh between 130 and 160 lbs; females 80 to 100 lbs.
When mature, fight to determine dominance and hierarchy. Males very aggressive among one another. Rams butt heads vigorously. Form tight flock when disturbed and then flee as a group. Most active in the early and late hours of the day. Seek shelter amongst trees, in brush, and inside ravines during harsh weather conditions. Sun themselves on exposed slopes when cold and sunny, but not windy. Seek out hilltops to catch a breeze when hot. During warm weather, drink daily. Can go 2 to 3 days without water if conditions optimal.
