In Old Testament times, horns were a sign of power or authority, & sheep represented humanity. Genesis 22:13: As Abraham looked about, he spied a ram caught by its horns in the thicket. The "ram" thus serves as a foreshadowing of Jesus Christ, leader over every nation, the only suitable replacement sacrifice to God in place of all humanity, for their disobedience in the Garden of Eden.
