Thanks for the input fellas. Some of those reproduction are far better than I could have imagined. Really impressive. I figured they'd look real blocky and fake. Those have some great detail. UH, the job on your son's sheep is unreal!
And thanks Doe Nob, but I'll pass on the skull. I think somewhere down the line I'll try to jimmy rig my horns onto a doe skull. It's not a super impressive buck, but he has some pretty cool "hay hooks," so just finding a way to hang 'em up at some point is all I really want. Plus, it gives me an excuse to get a doe tag at some point.
UH - I'm assuming that the taxidermist in question, never got any referrals from you. Wow, 3.5 years for a skull plate mount when a European is what was asked for, and then to top it off, broken horns in transit because he didn't package it right. If it had been my sheep (still one of those animals on the bucket list), I think I would have broke down and cried! The reproduction looks fantastic though. I'm glad Danny was able to piece everything together for your son.
