I seem to remember a picture of a big ram with sharp horns and glowing red eyes, but I can't seem to remember what is or where I've seen it.

However, I do know that Races of the Wild has the Brixashulty (http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/row_gallery/86666.jpg), which is a horned sheep thing that halflings use as mounts and pack animals. They're Medium-sized.

This being the homebrew forum, I would anticipate someone will homebrew one. Just give it a minute. If nobody does, I might eventually.

Here you go, I just made this one. Look over it first, I haven't statted up an animal in ages, so there might be a few flaws.

Riding rams are relatively territorial. If anybody gets too close to the herd, than they may attempt to bull rush their foes off of the mountain.

Surely an animal which has been dormesticated to the point where it is considered a "riding ram" would have been trained to be less aggressive than that?

Ahh, that's a good point. What I mean is, that riding rams are naturally aggressive creatures, but they have their aggressive natures supressed in the training process. There are both wild and domesticated riding rams, just like there are wild and domesticated horses. I called them "riding rams" because that was their intended purpose.

Fair enough.
