The goats face!
I just finished this goat for a client that had the bottom part of his jaw shot off. It also had a extra large hole in the center of the back. I'm happy my client will have a nice goat to enjoy for many years!

If you look close you can see the stiching for the repair. This is the inside of the jaw skin.

Thanks everyone. Every year I get a few animals that are almost beyond repair. I'm glad the trophy owner has something to take home to relive the memories of the hunt.

From: Ucsdryder

That's magic. I don't understand how you were able to get it all sewn up and the hair all going the same direction. Impressive.

Regarding the picture of the full body, it looks like it's tipping over backwards? Maybe it's the angle or just me, but he looks like his back legs are too far under him? Am I imagining things?

From: AZ~Rich
07-Aug-17
Great save Dennis! That sure took some extra time. It's always amazing to see how something that blown up can be salvaged by someone as talented as yourself. The long hair helps too. Great day for your customer. I hope he knows how far you went the extra mile to make it work out the way you did.

07-Aug-17
From the quality of your work I know I could not afford you......but your talent is amazing. However anyone who can afford a goat hunt and botched up the animal that badly made a wise choice in taking it to you. Well done!

I've done taxidermy for a number of years and it amazes me what some can do. This is an example of the difference between good taxidermy and miracle workers. It takes great artistic ability and creativity to do this. It's not just replacing a piece that's missing. You have to be able to invision what the finished product will look like before you start. Very well done. This is definitely like the saying " making a silk purse out of a sows ear". Beautiful work.

This blew me away more than any of your other threads. I can't imagine that going remotely well for anyone without an extreme gift. If I have a bad accident at some point I'm getting them to take me straight to you to piece me back together.

When you have to invest extra time in a mount, does the final price reflect that?.....or is it the same price regardless of hours invested? Does the price for a goat mount depend on the quality of the hide, in extreme instances?

You should be paid by the stitch .. Great work

From: Dennis Razza

Jake, I include minor repairs and form alterations in my pricing. For major repairs or form alterations I do charge extra. This is always discussed before hand with no surprises. This project had an additional repair charge for obvious reasons. We discussed the charge up front and he was happy to pay and understood why.
