This might be a bit of a strange question, and sorry if I seem accusing (I don't mean to be), but with some of your pelts, mostly the domestic stock ones (i.e lambs, goats), I was curious as to where you get the pelts from, if you purchase the carcass from a butcher or stock market and skin it, or just purchase the pelt alone?

Most of the time the domestic ones come from two "Sources"

1. Meat animals from our own herd and our neighbors herds. We raise all our own meat, So the hides are a by product that adds some value to us and helps cut our food bill for the things we can't raise.

2. Stock Deaths/Accidents/Illnesses/Stillborns- Animals with terminal injuries, Things that just up and die, Old animals that must be put down etc.

I do get a few from our butcher and I do end up buying a few animals to fill the gaps in orders and in our diet.. Most often Animals that are VERY bad tempered or completely unmanagable/sterile.

We do the skinning on almost everything.

I'm glad when the whole carcass is used, especially when it would just be thrown away otherwise. Also, with the soft plushes, do you have inside a wire skeleton, or something similar, or do you rely on the stiffness of the hide to rigidness of the legs and head?

When I Soft mount I either use the leather as a support or use a Pillow foam. The head is a Solid Form so there is no flex there.

Do you use a wire mesh or something similar for the head then?
