Rosethorn

These hardy mountain dwellers surpass their lowlander cousins in stubbornness and agility. Rosethorn rams sport distinctive, twisted horns that measure up to 4 feet in length and bear thorny growths, which they use to damage enemies in combat and strip the bark from trees during harsh winters when other food is scarce.

Though hardly a domesticated species, rosethorn rams' shaggy outer coats cover fine hair that makes a yarn prized for both its softness and rarity. Their milk also provides nourishment during severe seasons.

Ram

Source Bestiary 3 pg. 212
Rams are sturdy, stubborn herd animals suited to rugged terrain and cold weather. Regardless of their territory, all share a stubborn nature and surefootedness, navigating uncertain terrain with ease and weathering all seasons in scattered herds.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Mindspun Rams

Rosethorn rams developed their unique horns along the steep slopes of the rugged Mindspin Mountains in western Avistan, where foraging is scarce but abundant natural caverns provide shelter from predators and the elements. Though the creatures have since spread, most cultures in Avistan refer to them as Mindspin rams.
