  6. Extremely nice TBT. My dream is to mount a Cape Buffalo and after that a Texas Long Horn. Very impressive. Frank.

    that is a good lookin mount for sure, my dad raises them terds for roping stock, so i see them often, and you did a fine job of it, congrats, Russ
     
  8. That is a sweet cape. Mount looks good to me but I'm no expert on longhorns.

    The back corner of the eye is wrong. So is the front. Let me go find some pictures for you.

    first pic is looking at the left eye, second is the right eye, and the third is the bull looking upward.
     
  10. Nice Highland, Here is a couple longhorn eyes for you. And a nose for finish work ref.

    I think it looks great !
     
  12. Looks nice but the upper lips are to skinny, they shoud look like big thick flaps on the sides.

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    The quality of the cape and appearance keep some people from judging objectively. Like Mr. T, I noticed the eye immediately and I THINK that the ears are too low on the neck. They tuck up under the horns a bit more snugly. Still, a great mount and a beautiful marbled coat.

    You learn on each one, think you need to get the top of the eye lid tighter on the eye, those ref. pics are as good as you are going to find.
