Whip it Up

I want to show you this amazing piece of useable art that my husband made for me.  It's a stock whip, which is a traditional tool used by cattlemen and women in Australia.

I've been practicing with it and it has a lovely and very satisfying *crack* when you get the rhythm right.  I'm so proud of my whip, and the fact that the whole thing was cut and hand braided by my husband.  Thanks, honey!

Right now, just the dandelions. I hope that eventually I will be good enough to do some targeting. At first I was just trying not to whip myself!
