I knocked him over while cleaning up my workspace, he hit the floor, and lost his ears.
After I found the biggest chunks of his ears and cooled down for a minute, I assessed the damage. I opted to work with what I had. I super glued the original ears in place and let that set. Then I dremeled around the seam. This serves two purposes: it blends away any seam and layers epoxy to lend strength to the area. There was a good chunk missing in each year, so I will have to sand down and refind where I tried to recreate that section of the ear. Sigh. I was pretty happy with them before. Sigh. I also heated up his one pastern and moved his leg to make him more stable until I am ready to add pegs. I do not want a repeat!
I couldn't find my magnets and decided my acrylic rods are thicker than I want, so had to order more of each and am now playing the waiting game. Not my morning. Sigh.
