    That's ok because the sheep looked "lonely" anyway. Ha Ha He'll have company now, and I've heard that all works of taxidermy always want more company. . . . right?? Congratulations on the goat. It looks good.

    I like it, came out real nice.

    I know all to well about having to rearrange to make room for new trophies.

    Awesome! I have one at the Taxi now, I gotta bug my buddy to go and check in on it since it should be done well before I get home.

    I am surprised that people think i this is a good rug and then will not like a bear rug that is glued.

    I am not saying this is not a good rug. Don't get me wrong it is. But people need to make up their mind about weather or not they like a glued rugs or sewn.

    Thanks for the comments. I think it turned out really good. Dan-I never even thought to ask if it was going to be sewn or glued. Is it better to have it sewn verses glued?

    I didn't realize it was going to take up so much room (nose to tail is about 6ft 6" and hoof to hoof is 6' 9"). My walls are made with thin sheetrock and we have metal studs so it would have been a PIA to move the sheep.

    I personally don't like glued rugs. You'll pay more for sewn but they last longer and handle usage better. I've got a Brown Bear rug thats really loosing some appeal because the felt is starting to seperate. I'll just need to reglue it.
