    Have a customer asking for an ostrich rug. Evidently, it is wet tanned. I would like to tackle it, but don't know if there is is a certain "way" it should be done. I'm willing to wing it if need be. ;D

  3. Same as ding a turkey "rug" detachable tail and wings with backing. They usually hang on the wall.
