    Good day

    Greetings from down South (South Africa). I found your site while searching for ideas for the uses of Horn and some examples as well. I found this site and it is by far the most informative. I did not know that there was such a following of Horners.

    I recently, on looking for a new hobby, discovered some local cattle horns lying behind a out building on a hunting farm. I played around with them and even began intensively working on one of the horns and to my surprise I was quite good. I think that I have found my new hobby as I have now completely cleaned a horn and only the final sanding and varnishing must take place.

    I do have a question and that is if there are any uses for “twisted” horns? There is a local breed that carries twisted horns that when cleaned on the outside have incredible colors (to me anyway). I thought that the best person to ask would be from those who are passionate about the subject.

    Regards.
