    I do have pics of the form before the hide but I have to load them up ,I will try and do that by tomorrow.The form was from Research,it was their straight form then I altered it heavily.I tried to cast my own septum but couldn't quite pull it off so I used an elk septum.
    Hey Fred,if you want one you can buy this one!The guy I bought him from has another one on the hoof that he is willing to sell but I have no room for it.

    Paul,I am pretty sure we will make it back down next year,we have had fun both times we have been there and what I have learned from competing has done nothing but good.My wife and I agreed the only thing we would change for next year is to come kid-less!I enjoyed meeting new people and I am always amazed at how you can have mounts side by side with "competitors" and yet all the "competitors" are visiting and sharing ideas.It is amazing how each other help one another out,that means a lot to me.I also work in the oil patch here in Canada and if someone can steal an idea,stab you in the back or stomp you down they get ahead and it goes on and on.When you go to a function like this competition,it is a breath of fresh air for someone like me to see people having a good time.Thanks again to MTA for what you guys have done for me.
     
  11. Curtis.......absolutely outstanding. I would love to see that steer in person. I am very happy for you and it just goes to show that if you work hard and continue to push yourself, you can accomplish anything. Your studio is going to start looking good with all those ribbons hanging on the walls. Hopefully, if everything goes well, my wife and I will join you and your wife next year......abit closer than the 42 hour drive across Canada to do the Canadians.

    Once again, congrats from my wife and myself....really impressed with that piece. .............Marco
