    What should I do with these goat horns?

    I recently had to bury a goat - poor guy his name was little billy. Anyway I salvaged his horns (with all ethical precautions taken) and im wondering what ritual tool i could make out of them. Only I have no need for another wand. They are about 8 inches long are the shape of about a quarter of a circle. Thanks in advance, this is my first post here.

    Make a hilt for a small blade
    Make a mask that uses horns as decoration
    Affix them to a drawer or cabinet as a handle
    Make another wand and sell it or give it away

    Use them to make macrame!

    I like the idea of a mask like Juniper suggested.

    You could also make a wicked-looking staff (with some creativity):

    I'd walk around with a staff like that!

    Not to hijack the thread, but I think I still have some young deer horns that I was going to turn into a mask accessory... but it's not happening any time soon. If anyone here wants them, I will ship them to you. I only want cost of shipping covered, I don't want money for the horns themselves. I can post pictures later when I get home.

    Just as an FYI, it's likely illegal to ship those across international borders. So it'd have to be within the US only.

    Australia would destroy them first, then ask the questions:

    In most cases, as long as the animal is not on a protected list, it shouldn't be a problem...

    "Most cases" and "Shouldn't" are the operative words here - it depends on the country.

    In the US, for example, any part of any animal legally taken can be sent to any state - the exception is with bear parts, where laws vary state by state.

    Plant material, if viable (seeds or living plants) are actually more of a problem. Animal parts don't replicate and overrun the environment. Plants may.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Times do change. My Grandfther who was in Canada in Calgary,had a knife made from an elk horn as the handle of a folding knife. AS the story went he sent it back to France to have the knife made. IT was a beautiful knife.

    My GF btw was from France and settled in Calgary.

    Ah thank you for posting this information. I hadn't even thought about those restrictions. Truthfully, I have no idea what they are, or where they came from. They were given to me by someone who didn't know this information either.
