Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough
Mark, I sure have wondered about Mr. Marcus too. Mr. Curly Dekle produced a whole lot of whips as well.
Ha! Yes we have a LOT of plaiting to do to catch up!!!!
There seem to be three distinct styles of Florida Cow Whips.
1- fitted in the cup
2- out of the cup but somewhat tight to the handle. Still a cup there. Acts like a hinge similar to an Australian Stock whip.
3- more like a bullock whip, a thong tied to a stick type handle. No cup, a notch cut around the stick
