Long Horn not a Longhorn

As they don't have many praires in Delaware, we find a significant shrotage of longhorn steers to mount in these parts. We do, however, get some "furener" who move in here and bring some with them. I've mounted several before with no problems until TODAY!.

Customer has deposited a 1500 pound steer on my shop floor. He claims its a longhorn, but for all intents and purposes, it is a hereford with long horns. Eye to nose in 11 inches with a 9 1/2 inch forehead at the horn plate and a 10 inch measurement at the eyebrows. The butcher removed ALL the neck so we're winging it here. I expect to have to modify an existing form from one of the major suppliers, but I hoping some of you folks in Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, or surrounding states may have a local guy who specializes in making such mannikens. Again, I have all the major suppliers catalogs, I'm looking for a regional supplier who might specialize in big ox (And I did say OX without a "Y")
