Natural and Polished African Sable Horns for Sale (Hippotragus niger). The natural and polished sable horns measure between approximately 25 inches and 30 inches measured around the curve of the horns using a cloth tape measure--NOT straight with a wood ruler. The sable is a rotund, barrel-chested antelope with a short neck, long face, and dark mane. Both males and females boast impressive ringed horns that rise vertically and curve backward. When they arch their necks and stand with their heads held high and tails outstretched, they resemble horses. This flexed-neck position makes sables appear larger than they really are. The males maintain this position even when they gallop, as the arched neck is an important manifestation of dominance. As they grow older, sables change color. Calves are born reddish-brown, with virtually no markings. As they age, the white markings appear, and the rest of the coat gets darker â€” the older the animal, the more striking the contrast.
