Horn Protectors for Blue Sheep

Sometimes sheep and lambs need protection from other sheep with horns. Sometimes horns are damaged and require protection while they heal.

The Paris Zoo has placed rubber stoppers on the horns of the Blue Sheep (Pseudois nayaur) from the Himalayan mountains because there are three baby lambs in the enclosure, and to protect damaged horns.

The light-weight rubber stoppers (like thimbles) can easily be attached and removed without harming the horns or the sheep.
