    Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that In my 5 short years of doing taxidermy part-time that I would get to work on such a magnificent animal.
    Being that I am not a dumb ass and attempt this on my own, I called upon my good friend Robert Major to assist me on this project and compete with it at our state show in the collective artist division. We were happy with the results and I can't thank Mr. Major enough for his wealth of knowledge and dedication in helping me on what could possibly be my once in a lifetime desert bighorn sheep mount.
    Regards, Geno

    Beautiful mount, and a noble looking animal, presented in the 'Classic' way. Well done ... well done!

    Thank's for the kind words. Working on this piece with Robert really gave me the confidence that I was lacking. I just hope to continue to improve on each mount. I also want to throw a big thank you out to Mr. Manny Chavez who started me off on the correct foot, and always telling me "never settle for mediocre work in taxidermy".
    Regards, Geno
