Kelley Whips: The Next Generation

Cordell and his cow whip!This week was awesome for me as a whipmaker and a father because my firstborn son finished plaiting his first whip!

He made a 12 plait,  6ft tan and chocolate Florida cow whip. People are often impressed with the fact that I learned to make whips as a teenager, but Cordell is only 9 years old; beating my starting age by about 5 years.

While Cordell had the benefit of my experience to lean upon, I only intervened when he asked me for help. Cordell has requested that I make him a special handle from bocote; I’ll post another picture of Cordell and his whip after I get it made…

Congratulations Cordell. You’ve made your father very proud!
