    Nice haul, Ken. Looks like you're gonna be busy. Perfect time to horn in on the antler pen business and bag some new customers.

    Stink to some, smells like money to others! Actually having shod horses for a living for a few years then more years as a side job to my teaching, to me it actually smells like a horse hoof as you are cutting out the dead sole. So it is a smell I have grown accustomed to. But my one son in law, it makes him upchuck!!!!

    Maybe he can send you some of the steaks that were attached to the horns?
