Back to the big dog! Vertical jig mount (I made this jig to do the same area on my daughter Ravrn’s horse), the piece is so heavy I braced it, this also prevents any vibration even when I am whacking away with the #9, 1” gouge and the 18 oz. mallet.

Now, just the fur at the base of the throat, blending the top and bottom lips and sanding will finish this section (sanding will be done when the rest is carved).

When I come back again from the Green man, I will be starting the final detailing nose back.

-- God bless, Michael, Roanoke VA.

Your skill is amazing

-- Mother Nature created it, I just assemble it. - It's not ability that we often lack, but the patience to use our ability
