I am fairly proficient in Wings, but I don't have much animal experience, and I
am still practicing texturing with UV mapping.  Also, Wings doesn't do posing
very well directly, and the project I was working on before (manipulating
meshes using a skeleton macro in pov) is very thoroughly stalled, largely
because my C skills are week, particularly when it comes to writing parsing
code...or understanding the parsing code of others.

Do you know exactly what pose?  Could you find examples of the pose?  I might be
able to give it a whirl.
