Handsomely styled Collectors Set #9, braided
with rawhide and kangaroo in 1989, was inspired by a superior
hide I received in a natural shade of pale gray (nearly white)
rawhide. The two middle close-ups best represent the true color.
The firm hide was perfect for braiding and lovely to work with.
To accent the beautiful color of the rawhide, I chose the highest
quality black kangaroo then combined it with white mane hair
tassels for a final touch.
The bosal is 5/8" in diameter and
has a rare and no longer available matching "Blind Bob"
rope (mecate). The intricate clean design is interesting. The
conchos have round edge braiding and a unique star pattern. The
8 strand braiding is done with a single string.
Collectors set # 9 is lovely to view from
all sides. A collector would find this rare and unique one of
a kind piece a wonderful addition to their collection.
A certificate of authenticity will accompany
this set and will include the date of creation and my signature.
