I know this has been on before. This my first sheep to mount. I got the horns off from the skull. I scraped any tissue on the inside, skull is clean. What should I do from here? Do I need to saw off some of the horn cores? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I usually cut the skull to fit the form so I don't have to clean the whole skull if mounting. I also cut the core lengths 2/3 off...sure makes it easier cleaning, bleaching and replacing with no problems.
After boiling the skull clean I immerse in H2O2 for two days to really clean/bleach the bone and remove any decaying smelling flesh.
Why the peroxide? After 8 hours it's nothing but water anyway. I pour DP down inside the cases and let them set separately for a day, then shake it out. Then I epoxy the cases on the cores. Works for me.
