I haven't worked with any horn but as far as I know you should be able to work with it using the same methods as ram's horn or buffalo horn. I would expect the horns to be smaller than a rams horn so that might affect what you can do with them.

If the natural shape works as a handle or topper you may be able to fill it with something like car body filler and use it whole.
Another choice if you can't get a topper out of it would be to cut it up and use it for inlays, collars, etc.
Hopefully someone who has worked with horn will chime in soon.

there are some good books on working horn . but idealy you do want a experianced person to advise you
the videos on them are good .just check the thickness of the walls of the horn and length .
to get a full set of equipment is expensive to shape and bend horn .Not sure where your based but try a local stickmaking club in your area

In all honesty put them in the bin.....Ewe horn is too thin to bulk up.....
