I went full time making whips in May 2012. It was a good run, but because of the need for medical insurance and other benefits whipmaking did not provide, I recently took a full time EMS job. With that, I’m no longer a “full time whipmaker.”
I have been running behind schedule for most of the year because of a number of situations and responsibilities that providence has brought my way. Right now I just cannot seem to make up any ground on whip orders. For those who are waiting on an order, please rest assured I will get to it as soon as possible. I work on them as much as I can when I’m not at work or working on something that has to be done here on the farm.
My plan for now is to work on the back log and toward eventually making whips as a hobby again by moving away from doing custom orders. I don’t know how long that will take, but that’s the direction I think I’d like to go now. That being stated, I will continue to accept custom orders for certain whip types for the foreseeable future. It’s just that the wait time for those will be longer as already reflected on the posted estimates at Cowwhips.com
I want to make it clear that, if you’re on my order list and reading this, you will get your whip. I am not going to leave anyone hanging.
I appreciate all the support over the years.
