  8. A crop has a much different action than a "buggy whip" I sell a lot of Westfield whips, and have been to the factory many times. Westfield is the oldest whip manufacturer in the world, and makes a superior products. Their cores are predominantly fiberglass, depending on the application. Traditionally they were made of whale bone (baleen) they would put rattan on the outside and wrap the core with linen and laqour them. A crop, or the shorter bat typically has less action and at one point they would have been made of holly wood, ewe wood, or bamboo even.during the industrial revolution souther plantation owners would also have what they referred to As a "walk trot stick" used with saddlebreds. It is fashionable for carriage whips with a drop lash to be made of these traditional woods as well. With the carriage whips finished, unwrapped with a plaited thong that has a baleen tip with a split goose quill and "whip stitched" top is what you normally see. The lash will go anywheres from 1/3- 1 1/2 of the way down the shaft, depending on the turn out. The lash must reach the shoulder of the furthest horse. The materials change with the times. Goad sticks and whips for oxen can be made from white ash, as this is a popular hobby still in New England I still see kids running around the local fairs whipping on each other. Be resourceful for that right feel, a lot has to do with personal preference. Carriage whips are all about balance, from carbon fiber to holly whips, balance is paramount. with a crop, it's more used to encourage, maybe a little spank, but the rider has the option to use seat, and legs to cue the horse.
  9. Sergey at SewPro was showing me his skivers last time I was down there, they are as Dan calls "inspired by the fortuna" ha! He sets them up with two motors, a constant running motor and a servo motor for the feed. Not are mounted under the table, and he does this not both the bottom feed, and the top and bottom feed. -Andrew
