I took this picture 15 years ago on my way to my place in Alaska. I was going over Summit pasd, BC, Canada. My daughter wants to do a paper on this sheep and I don't know for sure if it is a Big- horn or a stone sheep. I know ya'll will know and I really appreciate the knowledge you could share with me. Thanks in advance!

It's a Stone Sheep! Dall and the Stone are known as the "thin horned" while the Bighorn and Desert Bighorn are thicker horned. You can also answer your question by searching the geographic range as listed in either the P&Y or B&C websites under specie range! C
White face and a saddle would make me think of a Fannin's rather than a Stone's.
Stone for sure.
True Fannins are only from a very small area in the northern Yukon.
Stone, without question.
I sure do appreciate the reply! You folks are great! Stone it is, and thankful I am...
