    My older brother and I went to a sheep farm and he pointed out the one with horns. he said it was a ram but I couldn't see any other evidence that it was a ram (if you know what I mea) can a ewe get horns.

    It depends on the breed of sheep! in some breeds both rams and ewes have horns and in some just rams have horns so if you did not see "other" evidance it may well have been a ewe.
