Bosal and Blind Bob mane hair mecate.

This Gail Hought 5/8” diameter bosal has a medium stiff twisted core.  The cheeks are plaited in brandy kangaroo with nose button and heel knot braided in kangaroo rawhide.  Brandy kangaroo was added in the interweave pattern. 

The original Blind Bob mecate is a rare 6 strand made from flaxen, chestnut and white mane hair.   The braiding on the mecate, button and popper is in the same kangaroo rawhide and leather to match the set. 

The sliding double ear headstall is made by Eric Hought and the matching braided buttons are braided by Gail Hought.  The headstall hardware is silver.   Finally, the heel knot carries the original makers "H" Hought sterling silver concho.

This set was completed in September of 2016.
