I thought, wow these are different, intriguing, and heavy duty. To our delight Wayland is a new advertiser in this issue of  Breakthrough, and you can see his ad on page 47 of this issue.

Mounting a World-Class Rabbit

Mounting a World-Class Rabbit

by AJ Harrington Written by Larry Blomquist

During my first contact with AJ Harrington I asked, “why did you enter a rabbit?” and he said without hesitation, “I was going after the difficulty points, and if you do it justice, that’s one of the factors needed to win a major award.” Another factor he wanted to present was originality by custom sculpting his form and all parts of the anatomy—including the eyes. He documented the custom procedures with over 100 photos for a judge to see.

Mounting a Black Rhino Shoulder Mount

Mounting a Black Rhino Shoulder Mount

by Johnny Humphries

In 2017, an excellent client harvested a rare black rhino in Namibia. It was one of five killed in the world that year because only 5 tags are sold each year. The client asked me in 2019 if I would mount his black rhino shoulder mount, and of course, I jumped at the chance and so began the struggle. While waiting for the rhino hide and horns to arrive at the shop from being tanned at Wildlife Gallery, I started my search looking for a form, and I discovered that no one makes black rhino shoulder forms. So, the wheels started turning, and my creative side went to work.
