OK, I did a search but nothing came up for tanning a exotic ram.

    I have a four horned ram comming tomorrow and I have yet to tan one of them. I currently use Krowtan, Is this ok for the ram also.

    I'm sure it'll work, though I don't use it.

    If you have never mounted a 4 horn, leave a lot more skull attached . You will have to make extensive alterations to the form & probably need to use quite a bit of the actual skull in your alterations.

    It will work fine, I still do some in house tan's and never have a problem on goats .,ram's not alot of difference as far as the capes. You will want to put a deodorizer in your rinse they have a smell of there own.
  6. Rittels sells a wool degreaser which strips the lanolin out of the wool. This helps in the cleaning process. It will comb a little easier. The bottle says to use prior to tanning. I believe the tan will work better if the lanolin is gone prior to tanning. I have also been told that simple green that you buy from home depot will pull out the lanolin also. I did a jacobs 2 horn that was just all mated up. This produt helped clean it up some.
