I presume it was a reference to the ram's horn or _shofar_ blown 
in the Temple on the High Holy Days (Yom Kippur?). It is generally
agreed (among those who believe in the Fall to begin with) that 
the unfallen animals had characteristics & abilities not present
in the Fallen world -- i.e., the lion & the lamb were at peace,
Eve wasn't surprised to hear a serpent talking, etc., etc. -- so
perhaps in an unfallen world, the ram might blow his own _shofar_ 
without humans needing to kill him? I dunno...
