cheers for your input stickie! I know it is much more difficult but I wouldn't necessarily need to be bulked into a round shape. I have seen sticks on a website which sells ewe horn sticks and would like to know how this is done.

I think a bit of threaded rod glued into the shank with epoxy(or cutting a tenon on the shank) and then filling the core of the horn with epoxy and sticking it into the horn would do the trick. As long as you take the time to make sure the point where they join is nice and neat, it'll make a fine stick. Maybe a collar of some sort if the horn and shank are of different sizes.

Could you provide a photo of the horn, it may help others with the thinking process, we have e few lateral thinkers here.

Our members from the UK kown more about this than most of us. Also if you google something like mounting horn on a walking stick You will find a lot of youtubes on how to shape and use horn..

I'm from the UK and there is very little in regard to ewe horn whereas there is loads on rams horn. often they only subject using rams horn because the walls of the horn harry thicker and stronger nut was just wondering if anyone has had experience in ewe horn as I expect there to be a difference in the way it is mounted to a shank due to its very different characteristics.
