Four horned yearling Icelandic ram born in Iceland. The Icelandic breed has the 4 horned genetics naturally. This is a trait that the commercial breeders in Iceland have been trying to eliminate. However some breeders in that country prize this trait and are trying to preserve this interesting horn characteristic. We are encouraging the Southram AI station  to collect this ram so that we can bring these genetics to the USA. If you are interested in this trait email us and let us know so we can get an idea about how much interest there is for these animals.
