    To keep from pulling the hide off center have any of you ever started your “y” incision by sewing both sides at the same time? Aubrey to five or six stitches on one side and then the other. Not a big deal but just thought it might work better. Thanks.

    Sorry that makes no scene, if that did happen , when you stitched the other side it would pull it right back over or in place . But it usually doesn’t happen and it never has to me . If it’s happening to you , your form may be to big .

    I pin the ears in place using ice picks in the ear canal, and the skin stays in place until it is sewn.

    Hide paste should hold in place if it is good hide paste.
