I am absolutely lost for words. Wow, wow, wow he looks stunning and super pleased and impressed with your service. He has come back way better than I could ever have imagined. I will have another one that for sure will be winging his way to you next year. A very happy person. (cow hide)

Kind regards

Received the skins, tacked the 2 bulls on the wall above a Bull Thar mount, got the Nanny on my table with a Euro Bull and Nanny head on  top of her. Everyone that has seen the skins all ask where they got done as they are best they have seen couple of guys all they wanted to do  was head  back down south and get some skins and are kicking themselves for leaving previous skins on the mountain. No doubt you’ll be  getting more skins sent down from me in the future.

Hi Adam
The cow hide looks fantastic. We are really pleased with how it turned out.Thank you. Fraser said it was a charlois angus cross. It is on the darker end of the colour scale as they can be much lighter. I was worried about it being too brown but I think it is perfect.
Our cow hide arrived on Thursday and looks great!Thanks very much. We will definitely come back to you next time we have another fellow or tahr hide needing done in the family! Kind regards

Hello Adam, The sheep skins you did for me ,met my expectations thank you, especially given the length of the wool,   you did an amazing job. Family and friends have been overjoyed to the point of being speechless when I gifted them such beautiful luxuriously soft tanned fleeces. I am happy to be able to give organically  home grown presents compliments of your excellent tanning. they are being used and enjoyed as chair covers for extra warmth and comfort as floor mats positioned in the room to show off their colour. Thank you .
Mrs Denise Leota. August 2014

I have been recommending you to all my hunting buddies for tanning.

Hi Adam,
The fallow buck skin that you tanned for me came out very well.
It has remained very soft and pliable.I used to tan skins myself
but the finished result and low cost of your service has won me over.
I will be sending you some more skins Feb/Mar when they are at their
Many thanks

We are very happy with the finished Tahr skin and have shown many others and
also told others and given out your contact details.
Just had one of John’s hunting mates look at it this morning and the same
comments come back every time; no smell, so soft and still got the down
underneath, and a very nice job.
So keep up the good work!

Hi Adam,

Thanks a lot.
I bought fur and leather from all over the world for this film ( the Hobbit).
The skins you sourced and tanned for us were consistently and by far the best.
I will be in touch again.
Thanks again

Hi Adam,
Just a quick email to say we received the sheepskin yesterday and are  absolutely delighted with it. We have had skins done before but none have been to the standard you have achieved.

I have attached a photo which you may or may not wish to put in your website gallery. My daughter is a professional photographer and we  thought this photo really highlighted the gorgeous lustre and finish you  achieve with your skins.

Again many thanks

Wow… You did a fantastic job and we are absolutely delighted with this skin and the others you did for us.

The cow hide arrived today. It looks amazing! Thank you for doing such a great job.
I live in an area with lots of lifestyle blocks so if anyone else sees it
they may want one of their own cows done! I will give them your details.
