Great shoulder mount with slight head turn to the left.

The Blesbok or Blesbuck is an antelope endemic to South Africa. It has a distinctive white face and forehead which inspired the name, because bles is the Afrikaans word for a blaze such as one might see on the forehead of a horse.

A mutation in color, the White Blesbok is not an albino, but rather merely a variation in color known as a 'morph' species.
