    My Uncle has requested me to do him a full body Baby Hog mount, AND..., he wants me to put a cup holder in it’s back. I’m looking for any advice before I start this adventure, particularly about how to treat the toes and ears, and any problem solving advice for potential condensation.

    I personally wouldn’t do it , not a fan of a mounted animal being anything other then the animal in its natural environment doing what god intended it to do . A cup holder in its back is not natural. JMO . Could care who it’s for or how much they would pay , well I’d do it for 1/2 mill .

    The toes (hooves) need to be skinned out and fleshed completely. The ears need to be split and turned then formed with bondo or an ear liner. The addition of any novelty feature won’t have any affect on how you would mount the pig, which is what led to Tanglewood’s question.
