    I have noticed the neck swirl (where you groomed the hair in the side of the neck) on winter axis capes, but not summer. Is that why you groomed it that way?
  8. Chongo, I really didn't groom it that way, that was the natural pattern of the hair. This Axis had 4 swirls or cowlicks like that on him and with these animals as you know from doing them, have very thick, stiff hair, even when short. It's easy to see how the patterns line up or change in the direction they lay in, so I go with what the hair tells me. This Axis was killed in late Oct here in FL, not cold but cooler, he still had a thick coat. :)
