    hello, this is my second shouldermount, im a bird taxidermist and small mammal.
    i was asked to mount up this four horned ram and the guy that sent me it cut it behind the skull and right where the jaw ends,(he thought skin just magically appears) even though i said yes no problem, first off i couldnt find a form so i had to carve one out using reference skull i have and by memory, also i had to get skin from another ram to sew together with this one thankfully i found one with the same white yellowish fur

    Looks good. Any Corsican, Mouflon or Spanish goat( forgot what sub species it is) form would have worked.

    I have used mouflon forms for four horned rams before and it worked out well. Your endeavor, however, was very ambitious and very rewarding I'm sure. It turned out really nice!

    the size difference was so to much to even bother :)

    It's always nice to see someone not afraid to tackle a job like this and pull it off so nicely.
