Thread: Anyone have any pictures of ram horns mounted on a plaque?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone have any pictures of ram horns mounted on a plaque?

    I am wanting to get all my ram horns mounted. These do not have the skulls, all been cut off so not european. Just wanting to see some pictures so can figure out how to do it this winter.

    Not exactly cheap, but you could go this route. Spend a few hundred and mount the nicer ones.

    You gotta love it when a guy says "all my ram horns".

    I've got a "few" sets of sheep horns in the shed! I've got two shoulder mounted and will add this years to the shoulder mount club since it is the best sheep I have ever seen in the field. The others will get mounted on plaques. I just have to see the right set up to do!

    Thank you! It is white leather....both the skull plate and the horn wrapping. Under that is bondo. The OP mentioned that he didn't have the skull plates, but I think if you’re handy enough you could still make something like this. Fill the horn cavities with bondo, insert couple small metal rods. Once that hardens, make your "mound" type base, and insert the rods into that at the correct angle etc. I'm happy how this one turned out, but I did have a portion of the skull plate to work with, so that was easy. It was originally a shoulder mount gone bad.....long story. That taxi is no longer around (years ago), but let’s just say stench, rotten hide mounted, etc!!!!!

    Sorry guys, I guess I was not clear after reading Hoyt. I don't have the entire skulls for a euro mount, but the horns are all attached to the cut off skull. I've seen these mounted on plaques before and then have a piece sticking out from the plaque where the horns are attached to.

    Hoyt sorry to hear about your mount issue but it looks like your ram came out good in the end!

    AKgramps that is a very neat mount never seen one even close to that. Love the burl in the wood!

    When I am done will post you a picture! Now at least they are in the garage waiting for me to do something with them, rather then sitting gathering dust! Original plan was to have all of them shoulder mounted, but after selling capes, etc. realized that was never going to happen!
