    Travis, you really need to line up some way to market those mannikins to the US market. From your postings here, your Sculpting work looks awesome.

    Keep it up,

    Keith

    Hi, Snowy - you are correct up to a point. They will however, show the white when turning to the left or right and when startled. I had several pet Roe deer in my time, mostly female but a buck too, and they would show the white in their eyes all the time. Feeding out of my hand etc etc. I had pet Red stags too and when I used to feed 40 - 60 each winter it was amazing how much white and eye rolling used to go on. Bill.
