Just an update on Jyri's raffle prize. I've had to repackage it all because I'd made the box slightly too big for the 'Small parcel' price :/

I'll have it in the post by the weekend.

Just for information: the stockwhip I donated to the Dog Shelter raffle was won by Joachim and Inga Kraus, friends of Nadine. I've had a nice note from Inga saying the whip has arrived, and they're delighted with it!

Nadine and Robby, thank you so much! I will show this to Lonnie when I get home from work! Y’all make the whip look good!
It is a larger six strand twisted taper core with a single plaited belly. Minimal binding, too.
Thank you!

The whip from Mark has arrived! It looks great! I hope for more decent weather tomorrow, so I can test it properly out of doors, and take some photos here in its new home. I've just done a few underhand cracks in the house (the only crack I can do indoors with such a long whip) and my first impression is - Very Good! :)

A short moment of sunshine, so here are some photos of Mark's cow whip 'Buckaroo':

The blue strands are more blue than these photos suggest - at least in the sun.

The handle fits beautifully in my palm:

If it stays dry, I'll test it this afternoon. At the moment, the ground is still exceedingl wet.
